Can create an sub-domain and add user uder the created sub-domain in the same AD DC.

Hi all, I have an AD DC and domain is domainone.com and i need to add sub domain like as child "child.domainone.com" on the same AD DC. I searched we need to create an another windows server and add the new AD DC to exits one as "add exits forest method either child or tree". But i don't want to do these.
My all work setup are done in Azure RDP so i tried an Hyper-v methods also.

It's not possible .You can't promote two domain controllers in same windows server. If you have only one physical server you can install Hyper-v and create two virtual machine.

Hi @Thameur-BOURBITA thanks for ur reply but i saw the word "physical server" which means the Hyper-V concept which related to ur suggestion is only for realy physical server or else an windows server hosted on azure provider??

For now i have tried the way on azure an virtual server.

Hi,
Welcome to share here!
As Thameur-BOURBITA said , we can't promote two domain controllers in same windows server.
You also mentioned the Hyper-v method, you can tried this method if you want to host 2 DCs (one for parent domain ,one for child domain) on one physical server.

Best Regards,
