Trust Relationships

Combined with trust relationships, domain models are extensible and flexible. You can use one-way or two-way trust relationships to distribute, rather than centralize, the management of users and domains among departments. For example, you can design your domains so that every domain in the network trusts every other domain, as the following figure illustrates. This way, each department can manage its own domain and define its own users and global accounts, yet these users and global accounts can still be used on all domains.
