  • Hi Danny,

    Thanks for the post.

    In general, If all users and services can be managed in a single enterprise domain, there is no need for trust relationships. If the domains for main and branch office are parent and child domains, the domain trust are established automatically.

    So I am wondering if the two offices belong to the different forests.

    As for how to create a forest level trust relationship, you could refer to the following articles:

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Miles,

     

    Thanks for your reply. Yes two offices belong to different forests. Both are using Server 2003 R2. I wanted to have a trust 

    relationship so that users can able to access resources whenever they login. Thanks for the links. I will go through it and

    will try to understand to make it done.

     

    Many Thanks,

    Danny
