New Forest Name and New Domain name cannot be different...
Posted on 2016-08-30
I am creating a brand new domain in a new forest. Nowdays, it is recommended that domain name "ad1.DOMAIN.COM." OK, but how?
Do I specify that in "root domain name" when I choose "Add a new forest"?
Then when I add a new tree in this forest, then Forest Name will be ad1.DOMAIN.COM or DOMAIN.COM?
Last question: Does that matter, as long as I put ad2.DOMAIN.NAME as New Domain Name when I add the second tree?
It just sound funny that the forest name becomes "ad1.DOMAIN.COM."
