Active Directory Child Domains

By wsamis ·
If a root domain such as example.com is on one subnet, do child domains of the root domain have to be on seperate subnets? Please excuse my ignorance, new to AD. Thanks in advance.

you don't have to have child domains on seperate subnets, but it is advisable which will reduce the congestion on the network.

Active Directory is not anything to be intimidated by. Grab that bull by the horns, and take command.

Domains are part of the Logical structure of Active Directory and as such you can do just about anything you want with them - they are indepentent of the underlying Network Structures such as IP Subnets.

When you start worrying about replication of AD information that is based around the Physical structure of Actove Directory. This is independent of the Logical Structure of AD, BUT maps to your physical network.

Must agree with the previous answer though - AD is straight forward, grap it by the horns and go for it (after proper planning obviously)
