I need to copy files via SecondCopy 2000 backup program from a Windows 2000 server that is configured as part of a Workgroup to a Windows 2000 domain controller. SecondCopy 2000 is running on the domain controller. I'm unable to use the computer name or UNC path to the Workgroup computer. I can ping the Workgroup server successfully from the domain controller. I attempted to establish a trust relationship between the two servers but the domain controller cannot contact the workgroup server. Can a trust relationship be established between a domain controller and a server on a workgroup?
I also setup a share on the Workgroup server and can successfully copy files via the share. However, I am unable to restrict access permissions to a user on the domain controller who will be performing the copy. The only available users listed are users in the Workgroup. If I could setup a trust relationship I should be able to grant access permissions only to a user on the domain controller.
Can I establish a trust relationship between a Wrokgroup and a domain controller? Or, how can I copy files from the Workgroup server to the domain controller without setting a share that is open to Everyone?
