    Hi Derek,

    Think I might be able to jump in with this one. Transitive trusts are implicit.

    Example domain A trusts B, domain B trusts C, so with transitive trusts this means by implication that domain A will also trust domain C.
    This is a Win2K thing - non transitive trusts were present in NT4 which meant you had to set up loads more trusts. In the above example you would have to explicitly specify domain A trusts domain C.

    Hope I have got that right - sure someone will say if I haven't!!

    the way I thought it was that, Domain A can see Domain B, but Domain B cant see Domain A

    Hi Derek, Cartman is right. In his example domain A will trust domain C and vise versa even though no trust has been explicitly set between the two. In a non transistive trust for instance a trust between domains in two different forrests, so say we have A, Band C in one domain from the first example and domain D from a different forrest, if you have a non transitive trust between B and D there will be no trust in place between A and D or C and D.

    This applies to a forest and not 2 separate domains?

    am I right?

    I believe so. As far as I can tell when trust exists between domains, if 'child' or 'sub' domains are created below them - they trust each other too within the forest. I think (emphasise THINK) the transitive element ceases when you are talking about two domains NOT in the same forest.

    EG. Domain A has explicit transitive trust with Domain Z

    therefore B.A (child of A) trusts Y.Z (child of Z)

    I wish I could try it, but it's a big large scale for me network of 2 PC's...

    If only humans were as trusting, the world would be a happier place!
