Event ID 610 – New Trusted Domain

Event ID 610
Category Policy Change
Type Success Audit

The logging of event 610 varies between different OSes. On Win2000, event 610 is logged twice by the domain controller when the user creates a trust relationship successfully with the specified domain. Event 620 too is logged along with 610.

On the other hand, Windows Server 2003 only logs this once for every new trust. This is accompanied by the logging of event 565, when directory service auditing is turned on.

This log data provides the following information:

  • Domain Name
  • Domain ID
  • User Name
  • Domain
  • Logon ID

Why does event ID 610 need to be monitored?

All changes related to Active Directory domain trusts, such as creation of new trust, should be monitored. If an unplanned change occurs, the reason for the change must be investigated.
