Question about Microsoft Windows Server Standard 2003 for PC
I want to create one way trust between two 2k3 forests , do I require that PDC be used to create trust as I have a DC in the transition network....on both sides.....
The PDC is indeed required for the trust creation but you really dont need to move any of your FSMO roles to any other site or domain controller. As per you post what i understand is, both of your forests can see each other. First of all I would like to understand what does that mean.
Here are my questions to you:
Do you have DNS configured on both forests correctly? Every trusted and trustee forest should own a replica of its trusted/trustee forest.
Are you trying to create trust between two forests or two domains within the same forest?
When you say you may need to move PDC role to both forests, what do you mean by that? A PDC role is unique to every forest. You can not move a PDC role of forest a.com to forest b.com it wont allow you to do so.

1. Open Active Directory Domains And Trusts from Administrative Tools.
2. In the console tree pane, select and right-click the domain node for the forest root for which you want to create a trust.
3. Select Properties.
4. Select the Trusts tab in the Properties dialog box.
5. Click New Trust and click Next (skip the Welcome screen).
6. On the Trust Name page, enter the DNS name of the target domain for your trust (for our example, it is Cogswellcogs.com) and click Next.
7. Select Forest Trust on the Trust Type page and click Next. (If the Forest Trust option is missing, you may have omitted one of the prerequisites. In that case, double-check the DNS Forwarders tab and the forest functional level of all the domains in both forests.)
8. Choose a direction for the trust relationship: Two-Way, One-Way Incoming, or One-Way Outgoing.
9. Resource access is still governed by permissions in the domain where the resource exists. The trust direction provides access to all resources where permissions allow access. Select the sides of the trust relationship: This Domain Only or Both This Domain And The Target Domain.
12. Confirm the outgoing trust. Select Yes if you created both sides of the trust; select No if you did not.
13. Click Finish in the Creating The Trust wizard.
The new trust will appear on the Trusts tab in the Properties dialog box for the domain.
