Administer user accounts in another domain

To be able to administer user accounts in a different domain:

  1. Set up a trust relationship. There must be a trust relationship between both domains.

  2. On the second domain, run user manager and add ‘<first-domain>\DOMAIN ADMINS’ to the local ‘Administrators’ group.

  3. On the ‘first domain’ running user manager it should now be possible to select the ‘second’ domain and administer its accounts.

These notes have been tested with Windows NT4.
