Hi all,

       Recently, in order to restore my exchange2000 database, I create a offline server in my network(I createa new forest a new domain for this offline server). I can't attach my tape backup locally to the offline server so I need to do it using remote agent and backup exec. So my problem is how to establish the trust relationship between these two forest so my production server can allocate the offline sever?

    A trust between two Windows Server 2003 forests that forms trust relationships between every domain in both forests. A forest trust can be created only between the forest root domains in each forest. Forest trusts are transitive, and they can be one-way or two-way. An administrator must manually establish a forest trust, unlike an automatically established trust, such as a parent-child trust., click Two-way.
    Users in this forest and users in the specified forest can access resources in either forest.

    To create a one-way, incoming forest trust, click One-way:incoming.
    Users in the specified forest will not be able to access any resources in this forest.
