FCS Enterprise manager in across multipule domains or forest RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    Just want to know in large enterprise, can FCS Enterprise manager work across multipul trusted domain and forests ? If yes, are there any limitations of deploying FCS Ent. manager in such senario?
    Any procedure or link on how to deploy such senario will be helpful.

  • Hi,

    FCS and FCSEM support cross-forest management when their is a two-way cross-forest trust.  This is required so the MOM agent can authenticate with the MOM server (and vice-versa: Mutual Authentication).  Cross-domain support is the same way, you need a two-way trust between the domains for authentication.
    Also, the Enterprise Manager administrator must have permissions in all Active Directory domains that contain down-level Client Security servers and managed computers.
