Hi

We are running Ad 2003 forest/domain functional level. My domain is named mydomain.com

There is another domain named External1. If I look at AD Domains and Trusts on one of my DC's, I can see that External1 is listed under "Domains that trust this domain (incoming trusts)".

Does this mean that users in External1 can access resources in my domain, or my users can access resources in External1?

I can never remember how this works, is there an easy way to remember? :)

It means that users in your domain can access resources in External 1.

  • Two-way: A two-way trust allows authentication requests that are sent by users in either domain or forest to be routed successfully to resources in either of the two domains or forests.

  • One-way: incoming: A one-way, incoming trust allows authentication requests that are sent by users in your domain or forest (the domain or forest where you started the New Trust Wizard) to be routed successfully to resources in the other domain or forest.
  • One-way: outgoing: A one-way, outgoing trust allows authentication requests that are sent by users in the other domain (the domain or forest that you are indicating in the New Trust Wizard as the specified domain or forest) to be routed successfully to resources in your domain or forest.

I remember it by thinking "they trust us" so they trust us to access their resources
Thanks
Mike
