I want to admin AD from a Windows 7 machine however the Windows 7 machine is connected to a different domain than the one I want to admin on. I have the usual tools installed however I cannot connect to the domain as it obviously does not recognise my username. I have tried numerous technet articles and also use the run as
runas /user:testdomain\administrator "mmc.exe dsa.msc" (this throws up a password but nothing happens after that point)

You have to have Active directory domain trust (External trust \ forest trust) in place in order to manage AD in another domain
Also ensure that required AD ports are open between another AD server and Win7 Machine
Please  download PortQueryUI tool from Microsoft and verify ports

Thanks that seems to confirm my issue as even when logged in locally I could access my current domain with the usual run as command but once trust is broken then its not possible.
