    This is a great article on AD design. I'd put it in the Articles forum but there's a chance a number of you might miss it if you don't visit the articles regularly and it's too good to pass up. Enjoy.

    That first test case is too funny.

    I can't believe someone was so stupid that they actually thought they could get away with selling something like that. That AD design wasn't designed to support users, it was designed to sell hardware.... DC's for every 4 users, and 1000 child domains.... Anyone with any sense at all could see it would never work. It's a classic violation of KISS.

    a domain for every 4 people, I'm pretty sure that if they squeezed really hard they could shrink it to a domain per person, hehehe :D

    Ah, I was looking for this article (bookmarked) after reading about it last year. Had a funny chat with a Microsoft AD Consultant where we talked about these case studies. Got a good chuckle out of the both of us.

    Thats great! I work for a company that supports a very large client (im not going to say who) and we use 1 domain for approx 80,000 users. If we used their logic we'd have 20000 Domains
