Is it possible to create a managed service account in one domain, and assign it to a computer in another domain across a one way trust? If it is possible, what steps are required to associate the account with the computer in the other domain?

Well you should be able to create a User Account then assign the user account permissions. When you add the user account you need to click on locations then choose the other domain.

All recommendations, for setting up a managed service account, say that it needs to be done through Power Shell. We have setup many accounts but nothing in one of our trusted domains.
