public void CreateLocalSideOfTrustRelationship(
	string targetDomainName,
	TrustDirection direction,
	string trustPassword
)

Parameters

targetDomainName
Type: System.String

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

direction
Type: System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.TrustDirection

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

trustPassword
Type: System.String

The password for the trust. See remarks below.

Exception Condition
ActiveDirectoryObjectExistsException

The trust relationship already exists.

ActiveDirectoryOperationException

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

ActiveDirectoryServerDownException

The target server is either busy or unavailable.

ArgumentException

targetDomainName or trustPassword is empty.

ArgumentNullException

targetDomainName or trustPassword is null.

InvalidEnumArgumentException

direction is not a valid TrustDirection value.

ObjectDisposedException

The object has been disposed.

UnauthorizedAccessException

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 Domain.CreateTrustRelationship method.
