Microsoft NT Server

Multiple Master Domain Model

The use of the Multiple Master Domain Model is generally limited to very large installations of NT. The Multiple Master Domain (as the name implies) is very similar to the Master Domain Model except for the existance of multiple master domains. This is generally created to overcome the number of account limitation discussed in the Master Domain Model section.

This model is considerably more difficult to administer and can cause a great deal of difficulty when planning group memberships and access rights. As we will discuss later, every global group for each master domain must be added to the other master domains, and all of the global groups must also be added to the proper local groups of the resource domains in order to perserve the network level administration and access control.
