My manager has asked me to document what would be needed to connect to another companies Windows domain during an acquisition from a high level point of view.
We current have a Windows 2008R2 domain with 7 DC's. If we took on another company I am thinking a transitive trust so resources could be accessed on both sides along with setting site GP's...again ( lots more to this of course)
One on my coworkers stated that we should use ADFS which we do have but I stated that ADFS uses a different authentication model SAML and would not support managing workstations and servers via GP... Is my statement correct? If so can you point me to a document I should show them.
Any other items I should be aware of when merger another company using a trust???
