Authentication problem between domains

By paula.zuber ·
We have a trust with another company. Some users logon to our domain and then access a shared resource at Company B. Other users logon to our domain and are then prompted for a password (much like when prompted for a password for an administrative share)when trying to access the share. All authenticate with the same server. User accounts are created from a template so group memberships, rights, etc are identical. No rhyme or reason why some can connect and others can't. Not network or pc related as a "good" user can logon from machines that a "bad" user cannot. Any suggestions?

Authentication problem between domains

It appears that your trust may be setup correctly, however you did not state what operating system(s) your were using. Also, make sure that the trust is set up both ways. If you are in a mix NT/Win98, some of your users may be experience a most restrictive enviroment. Netware will cause for a password to be requested also. Actually, for security, the mix is better. I suggest comparing the user accounts against the template. If you have a permission conflict between your global groups the most restrictive will apply. I suggest looking in the groups for your answer.

Remember, users to global, global to local, local has the resources. Global can cross the trust, local cannot.

I hope this helps.

Paul, thanks. I had reviewed everything you suggested. I finally went back to a resolution I had for a similar problem-assign the rights at the global level instead of the local. When the hosting company did this, everything worked fine.
