Trust Relationships are administration and communications links between two domains. When you define a trust relationship between two domains, user and global group accounts can be used in the domain other than the domain where these accounts are actually defined. Domains use established trust relationships to share account information and validate the rights and permissions of users and global groups residing in the trusted domain. Trust relationships combine two or more domains into a single administrative unit.
Trusts are of two kinds:
One-Way Trust: A one-way trust is a single, nontransitive trust relationship.
Two-Way Trust: A two-way transitive trust is automatically established with the parent domain when a new child domain is created. Authentication requests can be passed between the two domains in both directions.
Using DirectScript, you can create or redefine trust relationships between given domains through simple scripts. You may have a look at the following sample case scenarios that illustrate how you can use DirectScript to manage trust relationships.
