Websense: users in 2 Active Directory Forests

We have the websense appliances for web content filtering.  I have users from 2 forests in a building.  We originally managed users in Forest 1 and the websense is setup to lookup the users in that forest with the DC's in that Forest.  Now we have in a building with users from another forest, Forest 2.  Can user in Forest 2 be added?  How do you go about this if yes?  We also have a forest trust between the two.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There are two dependancies for this. Your Websense appliance needs to be able to support multiple forest setup. Also the second forest needs to have all of their web traffic going through the same internet pipe. If both are correct then there should be no issue.

You should also not require a trust between the 2 forest if your Websense appliance can query on multiple forests.
