Specs: Windows Server 2003
Hello. First of all I only have the basic knowledge of windows server. I was hired in a car dealership in the IT Department. We have different stores, Honda, Toyota, Acura, etc..., we have one domain, let's call it auto.com and all the computers in the different stores are all in that domain. My question is, is that the best way to set them up?! or should I have set up hondaauto.com, toyotaauto.com and acturaauto.com. My question is pretty much, is the way I did it, the way it's supossed to be?

The question of one vs multiple domains is a complex one with many factors to be considered. There is no single correct way to do it. There isn't enough information here to provide a meaningful answer.

Edit: I will say that adding domains will probably complicate things considerably but there are some advantages. Depending on the situation this may be a good thing.

Considering your lack of experience it may be a good idea to seek the services of a professional consultant.

One forest and one domain with toyota/accura/honda as OUs is just fine.

xion you need to spend some time in a Active Directory book or perhaps you just forgot a period in the three examples.

Your examples of hondaauto.com, toyotaauto.com and acturaauto.com are NOT examples of domains but three different forests.

hondaauto.auto.com is an example of a domain in the auto.com forest.
