AD - change default location to a new trusted domain

    Question

  • I have successfully made a new forest on our LAN, and established a trust relationship so now my domain LONDON appears as well as AD.LONDON.CO.UK when I check security. I realise when I login as LONDON\rob then the default when I change file permissions is LONDON.

    Is there a way, on a server that is still in the LONDON domain, to have it default to AD.LONDON.CO.UK when I check the properties/security of a folder?


    At the moment it shows entire directory/london, and below that is ad.london.co.uk which I have to select to find objects in that forest.

  • The only answer that I have had from several sources is that you can't change the default domain that is seen on a server - it always displays the joined domain first. So there isn't a positive "answer" - it's just "that's how it is"

  • Hi Rob,

    What is the reason for keeping the two domains? Are you moving to the ad.london.co.uk domain forest?

    When you are logging in which domain is the PC connected too?

    Kind Regards,

    Yes exactly that - we will be moving to ad.london.co.uk  (obviously this is a spoofed name)

    The Server I am connecting to is on LONDON, as am I (ie the old domain). I want permissions on that server to default to ad.london.co.uk for me

  • Hi,
    As far as I know, it could not be done, as the two forests are still separate forest, and the default location should be the own domain which is the London domain in your environment.

    Alternatively, as you are planning moving domain, you could consider to use ADMT to migrate the user account from old domain into AD.LONDON.CO.UK domain, and log on with new account, then see if the default location is changed
    You could see more details about ADMT from: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc974368%28v=ws.10%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396
