RE: Windows Active Directory Domains

Try using not different domains, but, OU's.  This way, each OU can have its
own GPO and security settings and ensure that you use groups to enhance the
security settings, not adding individuals to the OUs.

Subject: Windows Active Directory Domains

I have a scenario where I am trying to evaluate the security benefits of an
Active Directory domain structure.

We will call the company XYX Inc. They have an AD Forest/Domain for general
users. They also have a separate AD Forest/Domain for their HR Users that is
behind a firewall. 

The claim is that the separate forests with a one way trust provides the
necessary security to protect the HR Information.  

My thinking is that having the users/servers in the same forest would
provide additional benefit of ease of use for the technical team. Using the
already existing firewall, separate the servers behind the firewall for the
needed protection of HR files.

Before I make a recommendation of one way or the other, I wanted to elicit
the ideas of others who may have seen similar situations. 

Thanks

Joe Brown
