Setting up a Domain Trust

I currently have two different domains in my network that I keep separate and give limited access to. For example I have domain abc.ad and efg.ad, abc.ad has access to shares on efc.ad by connecting with a domain users credentials and it works. Now I am running into a problem with my backup software because the backup software is installed in the domain for abc.ad and I am trying to back up servers in the domain efg.ad the problem is that the services that run for the backup software application don’t have permissions to domain efg.ad. I was told that I might need to setup a one way domain trust but I would only want to give a one user access just for the backup. Domain abc.ad is a Windows 2003 server and domain efg.ad is a Windows 2008 R2 server, domain abc.ad only needs to see efg.ad what would be the best way to do this?

Thanks

Fire up Active Directory Domains and trust from 2008 r2 domain.

right click abc.ad and select properties

go to trusts

click new trust relationship.

Follow the instructions.
When asked, select to setup an incoming trust.

That's all, AFAIK, in the situation i GUESS you are in.

I told i GUESS you are in that situation because i think you have two separate forests with one domain each.

You may find the answer you seek if you go to: http://araihan.wordpress.com

I had to do some research a little over a year ago and that is where I found my answer.

I went into the 2008 domain controller that I want to give access to then I went to active Directory Domains a trust /properties/then select trust/new trust and started the wizard. In the Wizard it said to enter the NetBIOS or the DNS name so I select the DNS name of the domain I want to give access to then select next and I get the message that the name specified is not a valid domain name
