Domain A vs Domain B accounts - got trust?


Hi Todd,

What are your thoughts on this scenario:

SharePoint svr and svc accounts were orginally using the domain A accounts.  These domain A accounts were used to build out the farm.

Then along came a two way trust to domain B.

Then the architect says, let's change all or most of the application pools on the SharePoint servers in domain A to use domain B svc accounts

Is that a good idea?  All the documentation I've found says the only requirement is that the accounts are domain accounts, almost like it assumes no one would do this, have servers in domain A, built with service accounts from domain A, then later come back in and change the service accounts to Domain B svc accounts, that will fail if that trust goes down, or something else happens between the domain.

reason given for this, "the architect said so"
