Management trust to the tenants.


  • Been thinking a bit..

    Is this a valid solution:

    Lets say I'm working at a Cloud provider that hosts and manage company's Active Directory's. All tenant have its own forest. We have each an Domain Admin account in their forest. Is it a valid/good solution to have an "management trust"; where all Administrators have their accounts, instead of accounts in their domain. 

    Or is there any better way to manage it?

  • "Technically", you can create domain/forest trust and provide domain permission. Is it acceptable from your tenants? Even though, domain trust doesn't provide any permission by default, i don't want to see some company's trust in my AD domain.
