NT4 domain via W2K domain

I have NT4 domain and W2K domain. but they're different domains. (NT40domain and win2kdomain)

I've installed Exchange2000 RC1 on windows 2000 server (win2kdomain). Under NT4 just created a 1 way trust ( could not able to create 2 way ). How do I create transistive trust on win2k (I 've tried with no luck on win2k, It did NOT allow me.

I can able to access win2k server files from nt40.

I want my NT40 users able to access the Exchange2000 server ( Installed on win2k) without entering any username/password.


Please help

You can't get there from here - yet.

Your W2KDomain is acting as an Active Driectory controller, and isn't going to let the NT4 people in.  Exchange 2000 uses Active Directory to validate logons, so you need to have an account within AD.  Although I sat in a TechNet seminar and watched the nice man say "NT4-style trusts are still supported", I have yet to see this really happen.

One thing you might try is to create a duplicate account on the W2KDomain for one of your NT4Domain users and see if you get any kind of pass-through authentication.

I beleive that in the future, if enough people are interested in operating NT4 servers within AD-controlled domains - you'll see a product released by MS to support this.  A (semi-related) example would be the Client Service for Netware for NT4 from MS.
