  • Creating external trust


    We have 4 domains. 3 in Company A and 1 in Company B.
    Companies want to put an external trust in place between 2 of the domains to share resources across companies.

    When going through the trust wizard is asks for the DNS name or NETBios name of the other domain.

    Am I correct in thinking I should be entering the DNS name of the 3rd party DNS company that hold an external record of Company B.

    To make this as easy as possible, you should be entering the FQDN of the AD domain that you want to create a trust with. You'll also need to set up DNS conditional forwarders for the FQDN of each domain on the opposite domain's DNS servers. Domain A should have a conditional forwarder to Domain B DNS servers for the FQDN of Domain B and vice versa. Each DC in each domain needs to be able to resolve the FQDN of the other domain and that is accomplished with conditional forwarders.
