I've been doing some reading on suggested top-level-domains for AD and whatnot. I used to setup domains as
company.local and that worked just fine, however, more people want to use their external domain
company.com instead of the .local suffix.
I've got a quick clarification question, how am I supposed to set up my first forest if we're going to actually use our registered domain name?
It's easy enough to setup a new forest with
company.com but wouldn't I then have to add a child-domain of
corp.company.com to a new DC? Essentially requiring two DCs just to set up the one domain.
Or would I create the first forest as
corp.company.com and be done with it? That seems to make a lot more sense.
