I have a AD domain and a 2003 stand alone server at different locations.    I would like to be able to setup a trust relationship between the two.  Isn't there a way to make the standalone a trusted computer?  It looks lik in AD Domains and Trusts it wants another domain.  Thnaks!

Trusts are indeed between domains not computers. To create a trust you need a domain. Otherwise you might as well just join the server to the domain and acheive the same thing :)

>>Isn't there a way to make the standalone a trusted computer?
not that i know of, and i can't think of a reason why you would want to do this since the end result would be that computer being in the domain.  So why not just put that computer in the domain?

>>It looks lik in AD Domains and Trusts it wants another domain
that is by design.  the AD domains and Trusts snap in is where you make two or more domains trust eachother.

if you could tell us the WHOLE situation and what you are ultimately trying to accomplish perhaps we can help you out, but with only the peice of the puzzle that you have given us it is kind of hard to help you.

Just like mikeleerbrla said, if you accomplish what you described (trust between a stand-alone computer and a domain), you would then have the computer being a member of the domain.
