Forest.CreateLocalSideOfTrustRelationship Method


Creates the local side of a trust relationship with the specified forest.

 void CreateLocalSideOfTrustRelationship(System::String ^ targetForestName, System::DirectoryServices::ActiveDirectory::TrustDirection direction, System::String ^ trustPassword);
public void CreateLocalSideOfTrustRelationship (string targetForestName, System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.TrustDirection direction, string trustPassword);
member this.CreateLocalSideOfTrustRelationship : string * System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.TrustDirection * string -> unit
Public Sub CreateLocalSideOfTrustRelationship (targetForestName As String, direction As TrustDirection, trustPassword As String)



The DNS name of the forest that the trust is created with.


One of the TrustDirection members that determines the direction of the trust, relative to this forest.


The password for the trust.


The trust relationship already exists.

A call to the underlying directory service resulted in an error.

The target server is either busy or unavailable.

targetForest name or trustPassword string is empty.

targetForest or trustPassword is null.

direction is not a valid TrustDirection value.

The object has been disposed.

The specified account does not have permission to perform this operation.


This method creates one side of a trust relationship. The trust is not established until both sides of the trust have been created.

The trustPassword parameter associates a password with the created trust. When the other side of the trust is created, the same password is provided and the two local trusts are then bound to each other.

To programmatically create both sides of a trust relationship in a single method call, use the Forest.CreateTrustRelationship method.
