Can I prevent External Domain Trusts from seeing each other in the Security -> Locations Dialog?

Joe Costa 1 Reputation point

I have a domain which has External, Non-Transitive Trusts with two other domains and Selective Authentication has been enabled.

These two other domains do not have any Trusts or locally configured DNS Stub Zones between each other.

In my domain I have a File Server which has shares configured for each external domain and access control works as expected.

Is it possible to configure the main domain to prevent the external domain from seeing each other in the Security -> Locations dialog?


If it helps to put me on the right path, if I do not grant the "Allow to authenticate" right to users from the external domains on the Domain Controllers on the Main domain then users from those domain are not allowed to browse any Locations, including their own domains to apply ACEs in the File Server.

    What I understand is: suppose you have a DC1, and you have established external trusts with DC2 and DC 3 respectively. What you want to achieve is: DC2 and DC3 cannot see each other’s security->locations. If I understand it wrong, you can tell me

    But in fact, if such a situation is impossible to achieve, it can only be said to increase the authority settings and prevent other DCs from having operational authority. However, once the trust is established, it is impossible to achieve the restriction that the page is not shown.

    Hope this information can help you
    Best wishes
