We got a root domain contoso.com which contains some child domains like sitea.contoso.com, siteb.contoso.com. etc. I'd like to enable the Active Directory Recycle Bin on one of these child domains and only there. The root and all domain functional levels are 2008R2. Each domain including the root domain has its own set of domain controllers managed individually. I'm reading through some docs now, unfortunately most of them are talking about single domain forests. From my understanding, the recycle bin feature has to be enabled on the root domain contoso.com and can not be activated on child domains. But after activating each child domain has its own recycle bin. Is this correct?
Is it possible to activate the recycle bin feature on say sitec.contoso.com without touching the root domain?
I'm asking because each domain is managed independently by different admins and some don't want to enable this feature. Thanks in advance.
