    Hi,

    I have 2 forests: forest1 and forest2. There is an external trust between
    subdomain1.forest1 and subdomain2.forest2. Now we need trusts between other
    subdomains and we plan to use a forest trust now.

    Question: how to migrate from an external trust to a forest trust?

    Both forests are already at the right domain and forest functional level
    (2003) DNS conditional forwarding is setup. I have tested in a test
    environment: it is not possible to create a forest trust when an external
    trust is already in place.

    Maybe I am answering my own question now, but is the answer to delete the
    external trust and then create the forest trust the way to go?

    Greetings,
    Sander

    Hi
    Yep, to create the Forest trust you need to give up of the External Trust
    for the same forest.

  3. Hello Sander,

    Yes, your own view is correct with deleting the old ones and create a new
    trust.

    Best regards
