How do I add users from one domain to another through a trust

I am creating a brand new domain for my company - so I have created the new domain and trusted it to my old domain while I migrate. Yes two completely separate forests - as in a ccouple months the old domain will be completey decommed. The trust works fine, but for an example, how do I add the domain adminsfrom domain#1 to the domain admin groups of domain#2. I have tried to add the way domain#1\domain admins to domain#2\domain admins, but it does not work. How does this get accomplished?

Unfortunatly you cannot do this.  You can add the domain admins group from the remote domain to the builtin Administrators group on your new ADC.

You should also be able to add Domain Admins from the remote domain to the "Enterprise Admins" group in the new forest.  This should give you the security you need.

first, you need to make sure you have a forest trust, not just a domain trust. This is done from the forest root domains like a domain trust, but choose forest trust.

I agree with the enterprise admins, then you can do what is necessary.

Good Luck,

Ok it is a forest trust - I made sure of that - however, I am still having trouble adding the domain admins of one domain to the enterprise admins of another. WHen i go to the group and members and add another member, the only location is the current location, i dont see the other domain. Any thoughts?

When I go to the ADC on the new domain - to the bultin>Administrators account, I add and under locations, I see my old domain forest. I choose it and type domain admins and come up with an error saying it cant find the user. I see the old forest, but it cant find the user. Any help would be greatly apprecited.

Thanks!
