We're looking at deploying SharePoint within our company, and there's one question that I haven't been able to find any advice on. The enterprise is currently setup with a single root domain that is essentially empty, and several child domains for each of our major locations.
Our SharePoint deployment will only consist of a single SP server for the enterprise as the initial usage will be kept relatively small. A separate SQL Server used for the database.
What I haven't been able to figure out is what domain should the server be setup in? Does it matter? What about all the various service accounts? Do they need to be in the same domain as the server?
