A domain trust is a useful way to allow users from a trusted domain to access services in a trusting domain. If all users and services can be managed in a single enterprise domain, there is no need for trust relationships. However, there are several advantages to creating separate domains. Domains are a useful way to separate the scope of responsibility of the domain administrators. Each administrator is responsible for the users and resources within a domain. Domains are also the scope for security policy settings, such as account policies.
