'ipa trust-add' will only use LSA calls on the AD server. The most
important one is CreateTrustedDomainEx2
(http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc234380.aspx) to create the
trust between the two domains. Additionally QueryTrustedDomainInfoByName
(http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc234376.aspx) to check if the
trust is already added and SetInformationTrustedDomain
(http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc234385.aspx) to tell the AD
server that the IPA server can handled AES encryption are used.
