You should never have AD clients use non-AD DNS servers in their search list.

comment When do you need a new AD forest, and when do you need a new tree?
@RyanRies It may depends where you look. The Windows Server 2000 documentation has the unused 2nd or 3rd level domain recommendation.

comment When do you need a new AD forest, and when do you need a new tree?
@Tal generally speaking, company2's AD would go away as those resources are migrated into company1's AD. Of course, company2 can still continue operating autonomously if they don't need shared resources, or can get by with just a trust. That's more of a business decision though. Generally, people don't rename or create new AD forests because of name changes/acquisitions. The amount of work to migrate to a new domain is extensive. Many companies that have name changes which no longer watch their AD name will not do anything to their existing AD and continue using it as is.

comment Can anybody explain why DFS-Replication is not supported on Cluster Shared Volumes (CSVs)?
I'm curious. Why do you want to replicate your CSVs with DFS-R? Why not use the native Hyper-V replica?

comment Set NTP server on all AD members (old and newly connected) using w32tm or PowerShell?
Why? Why not just sync the PDC Emulator to an external source and let everything else in the domain sync from it automatically the way the system was designed to work?
