How to nest a built-in domain admins group in another domain admins group in a different forest?  We have a two way MS trust relationship and we are wondering is there a way to nest domain A (domain admins group) to Domain B (domain admins group).  Perhaps using univeral and local groups to set this up?

You cannot add a domain Admins Group to another Domain Admins group accross domains. You can either add a Domain Admins group to the Built in Adminstrators group of a domain or Create a Universal Group with the domain admins added and add it to the other domains Built in Adminstrator group. One of those two ways will work I dont remember which. Either way you will have the permissions you want in the Adminstrators group
