Dear all, recently I am learning on how trusting can be done on a Windows 2000 server domain (abc.com) and a child domain windows 2003  ( area2.abc.com).

I perform the following steps :-



Open Active Directory Domains and Trusts

Right click the parent domain and select Properties
Select the Trusts tab

A dialog box was prompted in front of me.

Can anyone explain to me how to explain, or how is the word being interpret :-


'Domain trusted by this domain (Outgoing trusts) .  '

'Domain trusted by this domain (Incoming trusts) . '


The word 'This domain'  refers to which domain actually ?

domains trusted by this domain incoming - means the external domains that your domain will trust for incoming authentication

domain.com is where you are working for example

you want to trust domain.local for incoming authentication requests - user in domain.local should be authenticated and passed through permissions from domain.com. an incoming trust allows this, but doesnt allow the same for a user in domain.com to be trusted and authenticated in domain.local

thats where you need a two way trust to completely allow and trust both domain.com and domain.local - draw yourself a picture, it makes it easier to understand - draw a multi teired forest and plan a set of trusts using the link above
