Hi,
Where I work , we have a NT4 network with 2 NT domains (2-way trust). Our company is merging with another company with a native Win 2000 AD network. What are our options of establishing a trust to communicate and share resources until my side can upgrade to 2000. Ultimately we will want to be under the same forest with 2 trees because their are 2 registered domains.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Donna

just establish the same NT style trust between your 2 domains and the other company AD domains.  you'll need to establish a trust per-NT domain to the AD.

Thanks so much for answering my question. I see one of the biggest problems we may have is resolving names but can setup LMHOSTS files to fix that.
