Windows 2003 Trusts

Hi Experts,

I'm studying for 70-294. I have a test network at home and I'm trying to understand trusts. I have two domains - parent and child. Both domains trust each other. Does this mean that a user in Domain A can login to a computer in Domain B or does it just mean that users who authenticate in Domain A can access resources in Domain B without having to pass any security checks from Domain B? I take it users in domain A still have to have the necessary acls on resources in Domain B.

Can someone please explain this to me.

Ciderspine.

users in each domain can access resources such as printers or servers in the other domain if they are explicitly given rights in those domains. Bear in mind that just because two domains have a trust relationship does not mean that users from one domain can automatically access all the resources in the other domain; it is simply the first step in accessing those resources. The proper permissions still need to be applied.

As for the login to domain A from a computer that is in domain B:

Only machines "join" domains. Users can have accounts in multiple domains. They need a machine that is either in their own domain or in a domain that trusts
their domain to allow them to logon.

Superior storage. Superior surveillance.

WD Purple drives are built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition security systems. With support for up to 8 hard drives and 32 cameras, WD Purple drives are optimized for surveillance.

Thanks - that clears things up a bit.

Here's what's puzzling me. I have domain A and domain B. They have a two-way trust. A machine is a member of Domain A. A user has an account in Domain B but not Domain A. If that user selected Domain A from the dropdown list at logon window, should that machine allow them to logon using their credentials from Domain B? This is what I cannot get this to work on my test lab?

Thanks.

The user can choose Domain B from the drop down, and log in with his credentials, but will not be able to log in to domain A without having credentials created.
