Q. Can an Essential Business Server domain be a child domain in an existing Active Directory (AD) forest?

A. No. Like Small Business Server (SBS), the Essential Business Server domain must be the AD forest root domain, and it can't have any child domains. Furthermore, there can be no trusts with other forests.
