Should be an easy one for the sharepoint pros out there:

Is it possible to nest a managed path under another managed path...all the theory i know up to this point tells me to no, but so far but nothing has told me for sure if it is possible or not.

I think I can actually answer this on my own, now that I've done some more digging:

Technically you can create a managed path for say /sites/, then if you wanted to create managed paths under that you could do /sites/portals or /sites/teams and bury collections under each of those paths along with also burying collections under /sites/.

You cannot, however, create a site collection in this example under /sites/ called "Portals", because once you create the managed path /sites/portals/ it is marked as reserved.
