Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To verify a trust

Using the Windows interface

  1. Open Active Directory Domains and Trusts.

  2. In the console tree, right-click the domain that contains the trust you want to verify, and then click Properties.

  3. On the Trusts tab, under either Domains trusted by this domain (outgoing trusts) or Domains that trust this domain (incoming trusts), click the trust to be verified, and then click Properties.

  4. Click Validate.

  5. Do one of the following, and then click OK:

    • Click No, do not validate the incoming trust.

      If you choose this option, it is recommended that you repeat this procedure for the reciprocal domain.

    • Click Yes, validate the incoming trust.

      If you choose this option, you must type a user account and password with administrative credentials for the reciprocal domain.

Notes

  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group or the Enterprise Admins group in Active Directory. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure. For more information, see Default local groups, Default groups, and Using Run as.

  • To open Active Directory Domains and Trusts, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Active Directory Domains and Trusts.

  • You can verify trusts for shortcut, external, and forest trusts but not realm trusts.
