Distinguished Name of a user

We are using Widows server 2003 Domain controllers. We have to doamins say abc.com and xyz.abc.com. There is trust between these two domains. I have access on the root domain xyz.com. I don't have the access on the child domain. I would like to know the distinguished name of a user in the domain xyz.abc.com. From the domain abc.com how can I know the DN name of a user in the domain xyz.abc.com?
Can you please specify me any commands for doing this?

Thanks in advance.

You can use adsiedit and connect to that domain and then look up the DN.  My screenshots are from 2008 but same theory applies in 2003.

Another way I really like is by using adfind from Joe Richards  http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm

So there in the adfind command I searched the global catalog and used the shortcut switch and searched for test3 and just returned the DN

Pleased note that in the child domain I don't have access. So I can not connect to adsiedit tool in the domain. Please suggest me how to get the DN of a user in the domain which I don't have the access.
