    Cross-forest trust

    Our network is mainly based on eDirectory, but we also have DSfW set up for some services that need Active Directory. Now we are taking over IT management of another organization which is purely based on MS Active Directory. My boss asked me if we can set up trust between our DSfW domain and their AD domain. Having read the DSfW manual, I can answer that. What I cannot quite answer is, what benefits do we actually get from this trust. As I understand from the manual, this gives our DSfW users access to resources in "their" AD, but "their" users cannot access resources in our DSfW domain. Does this "access" also enable "our" admins to manage users and computers in "their" AD (join computers to domain, create domain users etc)?
