In the ChildDomain Properties sheet, on the Name Servers tab, click Add.
In the New Resource Record dialog box, in the Server fully qualified domain name (FQDN) box, type ChildDC.ChildDomain.ParentDomain (where ChildDC is the name of the new domain controller, ChildDomain is the name of the child domain, and ParentDomain is the name of the parent domain).
