Transitive Trusts



I have two domains on the same MAN separated by a router. I can see
Domain A from B and vice versa. I have trusts setup on each domain so
Domain A trust B and Domain B trust A. However, in windows Active
Directory Domains and Trusts they are showing up as Transitive - no.
How can I set them as yes?

Hi Tesdall,

I will be able to answer you question if you can provide answers to two of my questions

1) Are these two Windows 2000 domains in the same forest ?
2) Are these two Windows 2000 domains are child domains of the same domain or different domains in the same forest.

I will reply to your as soon as you send me the above requested information.

This is a windows 2000 domain only (sorry forgot to add that).

Transitive trusts are Windows 2000 AD intra-forest trusts (child-parent).
Anything else is a one way, non-transitive trust. What are your trust
requirements? Let us know what you are trying to do and maybe we can come up
with an aletrnative.
