Is there a way to copy the domain from one Dataset to another?
I have a series of layers in Dataset A and I want to split the layers in to tiles using the Intersect tool; saving them in Dataset B. When I do this, all the domain information is lost.

The domains are all stored at the database level so you must have them set up in the database before applying them to data. If you copy the database, the domain information will already exist in the output database.
Note: You may need to copy the database in catalog. I have read that arcmap sometimes has trouble copying over the domains when copying a database in arcmap. The consensus is that you should use catalog to copy the database.
