Trust Relationship Dilemma

By Bobby Gillette ·
My company's two domains are in a two-way trust relationship, I can administer user accounts as well as servers and shares on the trusting domain, but users can't log in to the trusting domain from our local domain, gives an error that its unavailable. Also, when trying to give share permissions on my local domain servers, I can't view a list of remote domain users, says its unable to browse the selected domain, no logon servers are available. I believe its a WINS issue, but I'm not sure. Any ideas? ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you created a global group with the users that you want to access the alternate domain in there? Since you are an admin you by default since you created the trust can access the other domain. Create the groups and it should work.

Our local Domain Admins group was added to the LocalAdmins group on the remote domain, as is required for administration purposes. That part of the equation is correct. I started researching our WINS static mappings and discovered the problem. Thanks for the response though

Hi, I think you are right; it sounds like a classic wins problem. You may want to set up a wins server on the other domain with push-pull replication. I don't know what kind of wan link you are using or if you are using routers - this may be causingthe broadcasts to get dropped. Anyway, I think you are right on the money. Good luck.

You are correct sir, it was a WINS problem. The static mappings were all correct except the (Bh) domain mapping, it was set to the remote domain's secondary WINS server instead of the pdc (which does double duty as primary WINS server on their side of the WAN). I already set it up as a push-pull replication partner with my WINS server, and its mappings were also right. Just an oversight on my part, but thanks for the response
