Question on Trust relationship - Does any DC own it?


We have a 2 way external Trust from our Windows 2008 Domain to a Windows 2003 Domain,

When managing the trust relationship does any specific domain controller have control over it or manage it etc, when you are troubleshooting trust issues and looking for any event logs is there a DC running a particular FSMO role that you should focus on?

Because all two-way trusts are actually two one-way trusts going in opposite directions, the process occurs twice for two-way trusts. A trust has a trusting and a trusted side. On the trusted side, any writable domain controller can be used for the process. On the trusting side, the PDC emulator performs the password change.

You can test the same from any DC assuming that there is no blockage or comminication issue between two Domain/forest.http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/67e97430-575a-425b-97a5-ac15804a4165/from-which-dc-could-we-verify-trust-relationship-
