Connecting 2 LANs and 3 domains

By johnnyextreme ·
We have 2 domains in network A at 1 location with internal addresses in the 10.0.0.x range, and 1 domain in network B with 20.0.0.X addresses which is connected to network A by a 56K leased line. Of the 2 domains in network A 1 domain has a PDC andthe other only 2 member servers. The domain in network B has 1 PDC. Pinging is fine from from A to B and B to A. How do I enable network B to access shares on network A? Currently neither network sees the other in Network Neighborhood. Is this about Trust?

Connecting 2 LANs and 3 domains

Hi!

First I'd like to make an assumption:
You have two PDC:s one in location A and one in location B, thoose two PDC:s each equals one domain, so you have two domains not 3 right ?

Since two memeber servers belong to a domain and can't be a domain themseves.

You have two choices:
1:
In order for this to work you have to add lmhosts files to all servers and client computers that need to see the oposite network.

2:
You can setup a wins on both pdc:s and make them push/pull partners and then tell all computers on network B that B:s PDC is the wins server and same in network A.
This is very easy and if you're using dhcp in both locations this is the easiest way to get it working as you want.

This way you only need to add lmhosts files on the two PDC:s so they can see each other.

Maybe it's 2 domains and one workgroup because it started as a workgroup and the servers weren't installed as PDC. The reason I mention it is because these two domains in location A never had trust relation set up but both can access the shares on the other. Is this due to DNS for WINS resolution being provided by an ISP? There is no WINS server - just one DHCP server in location A, manually assigned IPs in location B. I am slowly taking over the Net Admin position and I want to do this right. I'll try your solution, but for now you get 50.

You're right. Here's the other 50.
