We have a win2k active directory server with one domain. A xppro workstation is a member of the domain and can map drives to the domain server. A win2k pro worstation is a member of the same domain and can map drives to the server. However when the xppro tries to see assets on the win2kpro we get "trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed". Both workstation users login on their local machines as "administrator" - is this the problem - should they log in as a domain user? If so, how can we keep their currents programs and desktop settings?

Yes, that is the problem. If they are logged onto the local machine, they are NOT logged onto the domain. Thus they cannot "see" any domain resources. It is possible (as you have experienced) to MAP a domain resource without be logged onto the domain (as long as credentials recognized by the domain are supplied).

Profiles: Since only a domain administrator, or local computer administrator has access to ALL profiles on a computer, try the following:
1. Log the users onto the domain using their domain user accounts. This will create their domain profile on their local computer.
2. Log off and log back onto the local machine as administrator. Copy the folders and files under the Administrator profile to the user's domain profile folder (profiles are found in Documents and Settings).
3. Log off and log back on using the domain user account. All their settings should be present.

Cool - this is what I sort of expected. I'll try this over the weekend.
