  1. Hello All -

    I am working on my 70-297 exam and have some questions that i would like
    some help with, thanks in advance.

    I understand some difference between Domains, Doamin Trees, Child DOmains
    etc. The basics i have down but as with all things one questions leads to an
    answer which leads to a question..

    When would it be approprite to use a seperate domain tree vs a child domain?
    I believe that answer is when you want disconnected dns name spaces + ?

    When is it approprite to use an OU vs a child domain? I believe the answer
    is when you want better (tighter) control over users and resources + a
    seperate naming partition to soter that data in?

    But also the answer is when you have enough resources etc, to warant that
    type of a setup?

    Please explain...

    Robert

  2. When would it be approprite to use a seperate domain tree vs a child
    For political\company reasons. Namespace would be a political\company
    reason.
    It is always better to use OUs rather than separate domains. Reasons for
    using a separate domain would again be the naming implications (political)
    or the requirement to have differing password policies. The less domains you
    have the less admin work you have to do.

    Resources would determine how many servers you need to have in your domain
    to support those resources.
