Connecting to a non trusted Active Directory domain?



I'm looking to connect to two Active Directory domains to pull in computer and user objects. One of them is the same domain that my PC and user is associated with, and I've had no issues.


However the other doesn't have a trust in place, and I'm struggling to connect to it. When I enter the domain name I get the following:


Details: "Active Directory: The active directory domain '[DOMAIN]' couldn't be found."

I have credentials but I hit this issue before I get a chance to enter them, so its clearly an issue with finding the domain. I've tried entering the domain name itself as well as a domain controller. I feel like I'm missing something obvious here.


Any advice on how to add a non trusted domain?

Thanks for the feedback.


The solution linked seems to rely on using the Graph API. I could be wrong but I think that's only supported for connecting to Azure Active Directory, which isn't relevant in my case as I'm trying to connect to an on premises AD environment. 


The "Get Data / Active Directory" route does offer me the option to enter a different domain, so I had hoped it would work pretty easily, but I guess with no trust in place my device has no way to find that domain?
