TRUST configuration between child/parent created at different time

    We have two domains that were created at different times. We have
    sample.domain.com and domain.com. sample.domain1.com was created first and
    is in its own forest. domain1.com was created down the road in its own
    forest. Both are win 2003 domains.

    How do we go about creating a trust between the two domains so that an
    administrator terminal on sample.domain1.com will be able to access the
    Exchange Adminstration on domain1.com domain?

    Note that the second sentence should say sample.domain1.com and domain1.com.

    Start over and create a new namespace for one of the domains.

    Forest trusts will not allow domains in different forests to share a UPN
    namespace.
    I.E., if you have two forests that both have the domain1.com namespace,
    Active Directory will prevent routing of the domain1.com namespace, and
    there's no way to turn that back on.

    I don't know if NTLM/External trusts behave the same way, but the bottom
    line is that you've done a very, very bad thing.

    This is a real world situation not some test lab where you can just start over.

    First of all we dont have time nor the resources to start over, second of
    all I am dealing the hand I have been dealt with-- I didnt set up the
    original domains.

    So I didnt do a very very bad thing. I am looking for the best way to work
    with the scenario that is presented to me.
