    I have one PDC and one server on two seperate domains, both are running Small Business Server. I’m having a hard time to join them. No matter I start with the Trusted Domain or Trusting Domain, it gives me “Access Denied” even I am the administrator. How can I fix this problem?

      Unfortunately SBS does not support trusts. See microsoft article:

      To amplify a little bit on the other answer given (which is entirely correct, by the way), Small Business Server was specifically designed for single-server environments. So, to operate properly, it must be a PDC and it doesn’t support trust relationships. Two Small Business Servers can co-exist on a physical network and you can share files back and forth by making sure that a log-on user has identical accounts in both domains, but it’s a tenuous existance and therefore not recommended. It is also possible to provide cross-domain access to certain server components, but the better solution is to upgrade to the full BackOffice Product.

      Which you can do, by the way, without losing the nice little SBS touches like modem and fax sharing.

      The first 2 answers are both correct as SBS does’nt suuport this.
      In addition, this one is for you, TRUST RELATIONSHIP is only supported between two PDCs or in other words, between two Domains, not between a PDC and a regular Server. Unless the oneyou called a server is also a PDC, then i would say that real culprit is the SBS.

        I forgot to mention that both servers are PDC on two different domains. You are right, SBS is the real culprit.
