Trust Relation Test

Trusts are relationships that are established between domains or forests that enable users in one domain or forest to be authenticated by a domain controller in another domain or forest. Trusts allow users in one domain or forest to access resources in a different domain or forest.

This test automatically discovers the trust relationship that the configured domain shares with other domains, and brings to light problems (if any).


This test will not work on an Active Directory server running on Windows 2000.

Target of the test : An Active Directory server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every Active Directory server that is being monitored

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameters Description

Test period

This indicates how often should the test be executed.


The host for which this test is to be configured.


Refers to the port used by the Windows server.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Trust errors

Indicates the number of errors in the trust relationship between the configured domain and other domains.


Ideally, this value should be 0. In the event of the occurrence of one/more errors, you can use the detailed diagnosis capability of this measure to view elaborate error descriptions, and accordingly investigate the problem further.
