Good Day

We have a client, Company A, that recently sold a division off to company B.
Company A is running SBS2011.
Company B is running Windows Server 2003.
Geographically Company B is about 100 miles away.
We already have a VPN connection between the two sites but require a trust relationship for various reasons.

Firstly does SBS support trust relationships as i have heard otherwise?
Secondly if it does please point me in the right direction in setting this up?

Regards

Definitely not possible, sorry; you heard otherwise correctly. SBS does not support trusts; this is one of the restrictions imposed on SBS, which make SBS comparatively cheap.

Hi,

as you said, SBS 2011 does not support trust relationships.
Take a look at PLANNING OF THE SETUP, last word.
