How do you establish and manage trust relationships?

How do you establish and manage trust relationships in Windows Server 2003 in a domain that also has Windows 2000 servers in it? Thanks.

Hi WineGeek,

What's the domain type (NT4, 2000 or 2003) that you are trying to make the trust to?

The link below explains how to create a basic trust between domains:

Good question. I'm not the one who set this environment up. How can I determine which domain type it is? Thanks for the article.

WineGeek,


Go in to AD Domain and Trust MMC and right click on the domain name, it'll tell you there.

Are you attempting to link up two windows domains?

WineGeek,

As long as you don't have any 2003 servers as domain controllers, then I'd say you've got a windows 2000 domain.

What type of Windows domain are you trying to connect it to? If it's another 2000 or 2003 then the link in my first post will walk you through it.
An NT4 domain is a bit more troublesome.

I'm working with a Windows 2003 Small Business Server. There are no other servers of any kind that I can detect. I'm doing all of this remotely for one of our clients - I've never physically been to their site..... yet.

WineGeek,

That's your problem. SBS can't make trusts with other Domains. Ms have it firmly written into there software and there's no way around it. It's in the FAQ section of SBS on Ms web site.

You're stuck if you have to use SBS - this is true for all SBS versions - it can't create trusts.
