If both domains are in the same forest, perform a query against a global catalog server.

If the domains are in separate forests, you will need to perform 2 separate queries.

Set your search root to <GC://dc=forestrootdomain,dc=com>, rather than <LDAP://dc=domain,dc=com>, which is what I imagine you're using currently.
