I have 2 domains that trust each other.

I need to change a single user's manager attribute to a user from the other domain.

The selection window for this only allows me to select the domain that contains the user, is there another way to do this?

I don't think it's possible. While a trust allows for the access of resources from one domain to the other (and vice versa) I don't believe it allows for the sharing of object attributes. – joeqwerty Jan 31 '12 at 0:48
Seems you are correct. – ohtee Jan 31 '12 at 4:53

This cannot be done. The manager attribute has to exist in the domain of the account that you're setting it on.
