Joe,

I see very, very little benefit in separating the domains. Honestly, it sounds like an excuse to not setup share permissions and other things correctly within a shared domain. From a management perspective, I could see this being a huge pain. I would recommend having them consolidate the domain into one and having someone help them with permissions and object security within the domain. Could they not utilize ACLs and VLANs on switches to provide the level of security they?re trying to use the firewall for?

Thank you,
Will
