  • Hello,

    Using child domains, administrators of the parent domain will be able to administer the child domain but users of the child domain will be unable to administer the parent domain.

    for the additional domain I think you mean a new domain in the same forest. If yes then here you are adding a new root domain and a trust relationship will be automatically added with the other root domain.

    Also, have a look to that: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc780856(WS.10).aspx

  • I would suggest that child -parent domains are good for the business in case you have big company which is international.

    You can create parent domain: yourcompany.com and add child domains: asia.yourcompany.com and europe.yourcompany.com each child domain hold it's own AD therefor its also easier to manage.

    Similar question was already asked here, you can check: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-GB/winserverDS/thread/47eb4573-9739-47fb-8954-1ce5fe11945f

  • An additional domain controller would be just that, a new DC added to
    an existing Domain.

    A child DC would be either the first or an additional DC added to
    a child domain, i.e., a domain that has a parent domain in the same
    forest:

           Parent.com  (DCs here)
           child.parent.com  (more DCs here)
