Yes, you can have the same domain name (DNS domain or Windows Active Directory domain) on separate physical networks.

You can have the same domain name on different physical networks but you will not be able to establish communication between the two domains even if you get a physcial connection.

You can't resolve the same name to two different domains. The name doesn't make them the same. They will have different ids.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

I don't quite understand your answer, wanderer. The OP is only talking about one domain, isn't he? I was assuming one AD domain with DCs on the different physical networks.

I would assume, because we have gotten this question, these two domains were both brought up as first site domains. As you know you can't do that and have them communicate. You have to bring the 2nd server up as a DC in the first sites domain. Then they have the same domain name.

Ah. I was just taking it as a question of whether all AD servers in in AD domain had to be on the same physical network. As you say, you certainly can't give the same name to two AD domains and then have them communicate with each other.
