Child domain Benefits in large environment

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am aware that if we have child domain in large environment, it will help reducing broadcast traffic also when creating a child domain it also create a two way trust between parent and child domain.

    What all are the other benefits of creating a child domain ?

    Also please help me understanding is there any other restriction between child and parent domain ?

  • Hi

     Child domains are useful when you have a kind of "sub business" structure and have geological different companies&site's.Also you should configure different polices for a domain,also have seperate OU environment on child domain's...So that's all depends on your needs actually.Also the recommendation is to start your design with a single domain forest model.

    And you should check this informations also;
