Domains and Forests Technical Reference
Domains and forests are logical representations of the directory hierarchy in the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Active Directory directory service. Active Directory domains and forests allow administrators to organize elements of a network (such as users, computers, devices, resources, and application-specific data from Active Directory–enabled applications) into a non-physical hierarchical structure, known as the logical structure. You can use domains and forests to provide an information repository and services to make information available to users and applications.
