    If domain B trusts domain A, does this mean :-

    (1) at the login screen on a computer in domain A, the user has the option of logging into domain A or domain B. If domain B is selected, then the user must then enter a user name/pswd for a user account in domain B.

    OR

    (2) at the login screen on a computer in domain A, the user can log into a domain A user account only, but such an account can be assigned permissions to resources in domain B ?

    Thanks for any info.

    1) I think if you logon to domain B with a user account from domain A you can still log on as the DC in domain B honours the logon credentials on behalf of domain A.

    2) When assigning permissions to a share the user accounts can be from either domain.

    Answer is (2).

    For (1) to be true, domain A would need to trust domain B (I.e. the opposite of the original statement).

    Are these domains in the same AD forest?

    Yes. Its just a hypothetical situation - I just wasn't clear from the book I was reading what exactly a 'trust' relationship means.

    Ok well, it makes a difference. If the domains are in the same forest, then they will already have a two way transitive (both domains trust eachother) trust relationship.

    Note, this is from my Windows 2000 studies but i doubt much has changed.

    The source and more info on trusts can be found here..
