    I'm trying to have constrained endpoint which will run with credentials from different domain (no trust between domain where computer is and what endpoint shall be running under. Is it possible? Trying to register this endpoing ends up in error

    The computer registering the endpoint, and the machine where the endpoint will be, need to be able to resolve the credential.

    They can resolve the credential, question is wether you can run endpoint under credentials in different domain. Say I can use those credentials to access file shares from this box but I can not use them to run endpoint as.

    Ah, I see.

    A file share isn't the ideal test of that; the endpoint RunAs credential needs certain rights, like the right to create process objects and tokens. That's different from being able to just access a file share. It's more like being able to log on interactively, although not exactly the same. You probably won't be able to use a RunAs credential from an un trusted domain.

      You will not be able to runas from untrusted domain for sure 🙂
