[Samba] create new child windows domain in existing samba forest

Hello Andrew, thanks for answering.

What is the status of trusts ?

On the FAQ says that samba trusts but can't be trusted, but on the roadmap it seems to have had some development lately.

Can I use trusts between subdomains to enforce child domain like feature ?

Not sure if it makes sense too.

I need to set up an environment of an organization that requires a root domain or empty placeholder as some say, and child domains within because the organization is multinational. I am evaluating samba if it fits the needs of the organization and active directory from ms as well.

Really would prefer to use Samba, but I also need a level of control or a feature like child domains in ms ad.

Andrew, if you could advise on that.

Thanks a lot.

This is not currently supported in Samba's AD DC.
