    Hi,

    I am new to this forum and this is my first post.

    I am currently planning for restructuring AD in my organization which is currently a mess. The new structure needs to be built from scratch. I am planning to stick to geographical domain structuring which can provide scalability in future.

    So the structure I am planning is like this:

    Parent Domain: xyz.com
    Child Domain: location1.xyz.com
    Child Domain: location2.xyz.com

    Now the problem is that I have to start with Location1 first and only have single license for 2008 server. It won’t be until another 6 months that additional licenses are bought. So, I am forced to setup domain for Location1 that shall finally end up as child to parent domain that shall be setup later.

    My questions are:

    1. Can a domain “location1.xyz.com” be setup and later added as a child to a newly created parent domain “xyz.com”?
    2. What process would such a setup involve?
