We have a windows 2000 active directory network in mixed mode. We have one
forest with one parent domain and just recently added one child domain.

My problem is that the domain admins in the parent domain are NOT a member
or are not domain admins of the child domain.

I need help on troubleshooting this issue. Any suggestions, tools to use
etc. is much appreciated.

What is your goal here? If it's just to have the parent domain admins have
the admin role in your child domain you should just be able to add them. In
your child domain Users OU, you'll see domain admins. Just go to properties
on this, click the dropdown and select your parent domain admins group.

A.J. has this right on. Just to add, you shouldn't expect that the
parent domain's admins will propagate down to the child domain. That's
what the Enterprise Domain group is for, as that is forest-wide. So
don't worry that anything is misconfigured. This is what is supposed to
happen.

Take care.

[Same as what the other two responders said,
with this addition.]

The parent admins are NOT expected to be
admins of other domains UNLESS the parent
is THE ROOT FOREST domain -- then they
get the privileges by being Enterprise Admins.

Hi, Herb:

I think that that is only true if you have placed the root domain's
admins in the Enterprise Admins group.

In my experience, only the actual "Administrator" account has the
automatic enterprise admin credential.

Then again, I've had a long day, and could be wrong. Off to test it in
VM-land.
