Today, we made it easier for you to configure trust relationships between your AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory (Enterprise Edition)—also known as Microsoft AD—and your on-premises Microsoft Active Directory domains. Establishing trust relationships requires conditional forwarders, which resolve Domain Name System (DNS) queries between the domain names of the trusting directories. You now can more easily configure conditional forwarders using the Directory Service console, which eliminates the need to install DNS Manager on a Microsoft Windows Server instance in your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
