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.
