    Hello, I'm going to setup 2 AD 2003 domains each in its own subnet.
    Each domain will be in its own forest so the 2 domains are not related what
    soever.
    DomainA.loc = 192.168.1.x/24 DC1 (DNS/DHCP)
    DomainB.loc = 192.168.2.x/24 DC1 (DNS)

    Some of the machines on 192.168.1.x/24 will actully belong to DomainB.loc
    and will get dhcp from DomainA.loc's DC1 so it'll be pointing to
    DomainA.loc's DC/DNS server.
    So I need DOmainA.loc's DC1 (DNS/DHCP) to be able to resolve hosts on
    DomainB.loc's domain.

    Do I use conditional forwarder for this?
    So enter in the conditional forwarder on DomainA.loc's DC/DNS for the domain
    DOmainB.loc = IP of the DomainB.loc's DC/DNS.
    Would this work? And if I need this vice versa, I'd do the same on the
    other domain?

  2. Hello gira,

    You can use conditional forwarders or stub zones on each domain. Is the same
    as preparing 2 forest/domains for a trust.

    Best regards
