Tree and Forest (Full Trust) - Active Directory network diagram

This Active Directory network diagram example depicts types of groups and people assignment rules.
Architecture groups in a Windows Active Directory 2003:
(1) The arrow indicates "may be a member of."
(2) Dotted: Functionality limited to Windows 2003 (without the Windows 2000 compatibility).
(3) Red: Setting possible, but not recommended.

"By using the Active Directory® Domain Services (AD DS) server role, you can create a scalable, secure, and manageable infrastructure for user and resource management, and you can provide support for directory-enabled applications, such as Microsoft® Exchange Server. ...
AD DS provides a distributed database that stores and manages information about network resources and application-specific data from directory-enabled applications. Administrators can use AD DS to organize elements of a network, such as users, computers, and other devices, into a hierarchical containment structure. The hierarchical containment structure includes the Active Directory forest, domains in the forest, and organizational units (OUs) in each domain. A server that is running AD DS is called a domain controller." [technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/9a5cba91-7153-4265-adda-c70df2321982]

This AD diagram example was redesigned from the picture "Single root domain with a structured OU model" from the book "Active Directory for Dummies".
"A domain is the cornerstone that you lay whenever you create trees and forests. Regardless of whether you design a tree or a forest, the starting point is always the root domain. The root domain is the first domain that you create in your AD structure, and it sits at the top of your diagram.
The root domain of your tree, similar to any other domain, is a grouping of
resources built on the following components:
(1) Domain controllers.
(2) Security policies. ...
For many small and medium-sized companies, a single root domain with a
structured OU (organizational unit) model... provides sufficient flexibility for an AD tree. ...
However, larger companies, companies with complex organization charts, and
companies with multiple sites often find that a single domain isn’t suitable." [Steve Clines and Marcia Loughry, Active Directory® For Dummies®, 2nd Edition. 2008]

The vector stencils library "Active Directory Sites and Services" contains 12 symbol icons of Active Directory Sites and Services design elements for drawing high-level network topology plan diagrams.
"Active Directory® Sites and Services is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in that you can use to administer the replication of directory data among all sites in an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) forest. This snap-in also provides a view of the service-specific objects that are published in AD DS. ...
Administrators who are responsible for forest-wide service administration can use Active Directory Sites and Services to manage the intersite replication topology for the forest. Administrators who are responsible for application services can be delegated responsibility for the service containers into which application-specific objects are published.
When you add the Active Directory Domain Services server role to a server, Active Directory Sites and Services is added to the Administrative Tools menu." [technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc730868.aspx]
