In order words, I want to create a administrator acccount to have permissions to install or run scripts on the child domains. I would be so greatful if you can help me with this. e.g to manage workstation on the child domain with an administrator account on the parent domain. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A – Clarification: My answer is based on the following presumptions. Windows 2k3, AD, and trusts between domains.

In the parent domain you have a admin account you use regularly. It is monitored for changes and you review those logs – right. Make this account a member of the ‘Enterprise Administrators’. On each child domain add this account to the ‘Domain Administrators’ and you are good to go. That account is in effect the same as the local administrator on each server. Now having given the keys to the entire system to this account, Disable It! Only enable this account when needed and TURN IT OFF when finished.

The need is not unique, but the solution is very dangerous.

    yes it is posssible to manage one account for both parent and child domain because through the parent domain, the authencation can be given to child domain. The Super Admin can perform this action if he is having the rights for both the account.The hierarchy is an integrated part of the AD. And so, most of the parent domain protocols are inherited into the child domain.
