I have a 2 way trust between 2 windows 2003 domain in seperate forests. I want to add a universal security group from domain A (forest A) to a universal SG in Domain B (Forest B). However, I dont get the "location" option to select that domain when tryign to do this. Is this possible?

    Accepted Solution

    No. Universal groups can only have members from the forest they belong to. You would need to add he Universal group to a Domain Local group in the remote domain.
