Hi

I just setup a one way trust, what do I need to do to get users (Enterprise Admins) from the other domain to log into the domain controller in the other forest?

Trusts grant no rights across trusting domains.  It only allows users to authenticate across domains.  You would have to add users to a group that grants the permissions that allow them to log on to domain controllers.  For example, add the users to "Account Operators", "Domain Admins", or "Enterprise Admins" (you should not do this, generally.)

If at all possible, never let "standard" user accounts log on to domain controllers or add them to sensitive groups.  Always require a secondary, administrative account for elevated access to domains/domain controllers.

I can see the domain, although it will not allow me to see the users under the other domain.    Then when I rdp to the dc, it says the trust relationship failed.

check you've got the trust the right way around.

Remember, trust direction is opposite of access direction.
If you want DOMAIN-A users to log on to DOMAIN-B, then you need to set up an INCOMING trust on DOMAIN-A or an OUTGOING trust on DOMAIN-B.

As totallytonto mentions, you likely have the trust direction going the wrong way.

Actually it connected for a bit, but now it says it cant reach the controllers.  This is pingable between the locations.  Perhaps there are additional DNS settings beyond what i setup?

have you set the DNS forwarders for each domain's DNS servers so they can forward DNS requests for the other domain to the right DNS server?
