I am supporting a financial organization that comprises of 4 individual companies. They have a single domain structure (Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise) setup and everyone is not on it. Would it be appropriate to set up a forest structure (multiple domains) composed of 4 domains representing each company for this scenario?

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer". .

All I can say is it Depends on the organizations involved it's way too loose to ask a question like this without far more detail which would generally come from a Adviser coming in to Advise the companies.
