Federating NethServer Active Directory

How would I go about federating two AD / DNS environments? Say I have abc.domain.com and xyz.domain.com - both Nethserver domains. Any way to federate them? Does federation via RSAT work (domains and trusts)?

Thanks!

I never tried to achieve this! By now NSDC works as a standalone DC. There is a wiki page that explains how to join a DC to an existing domain

Do you have any pointer to Samba AD and inter-domain trust?

Neat! I may attempt to do this in a lab. If so I’ll report back with what I find.

I have not yet attempted to join a second nsdc to the domain as a secondary DC. I intend to though! I expect it will work without issue.

I’m sorry. I’m not sure what you mean here (which probably means I do not have it!). Would you mind elaborating?

I’m not sure I understood your question, and what do you mean by “federating” two AD.

Domains in AD can reciprocally trust each other, but I never encountered this scenario with NethServer.
