Hi all,

Currently we have built an AD Domain, which is now in testing fase.
Hi all,

Currently we have built an AD Domain, which is now in testing fase.
I would like to have some ideas in order to make a decision.
Demote to a child domain in an existing domain in the near future.
Or just demote the AD to a server in a Workgroup for the time being.
Need some suggestions here.

student-mcse, you'll likely get more and more knowledgeable responses in the programming forum @:

This is a server question, which in your case would be 2003 server.

You need to learn a bit more about servers and AD before you make any decisions.

You don't promote a server into a workgroup.
You demote a child domain to remove it.

Hi wanderer,

Thanks for the input.
However, this I already knew...and that is also not what I am trying to do either.
What I am trying to do though is gaining information for my decision to make, before a lot of work is coming ahead.
While the current virtual AD is only in testing fase and not yet havely populated, demoting AD will probarly take not too much time to get it done.
But is it nessasary, like for the use of programs from the other forest?
Is that possible in a forest trust with all the limitations?

Other forest?
"forest trust with all the limitations"?

I have no idea what you are talking about and I have been working in AD for 10 years and NDS [ADs precuror] for 8 years.

If I were to guess the question you are asking it would be;
can you run programs from one forest to another without a forest trust... the answer would be no.

If you want intellegent feedback start with an accurate description of how you are setup [forests/domains/trusts] and what it is you are trying to accomplish.
