Hi guys hope you all well and can assist.

Guys we are shrinking the number of domains nour environment down from six to two.
Currently we have trusts in place.
What we will have is the following:

Root domain
|____ subdomainA

What I want to know is would you guys set up a trust between root and sub?
Would this be needed. And or would you see a need to use universal groups here?

Any help greatly appreciated.

There should be a trust established between the forest root and the sub domain (tree root trust)  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc775736(WS.10).aspx

You could use globals and domain locals for resource sharing UGLY/AGLP  http://adisfun.blogspot.com/2009/04/ugly-aglp-what-are-they.html
