Cross certification of a domain with a single server outside that domain
Posted on 2004-04-22
We have installed a new 6.5 server and are now trying to get access for the users. For a whole lot of reasons, the server has a separate domain. We had it working on an old 5.01 server but the hardware is failing and we need to go to 6.5 anyway. So we set up a new server.
We had the users accessing the old server without cross certifying the users seperately.
The users are organised as: name/dept/company
The server is dept2/company2
What we want is to cross certify the users to give them access to the server.
The more I read about this, the more I get confused.
What is the step by step process to cross certify the */dept/company on our new server?
I do not remember ever using a safe id of the dept/company cert.id to cross certify.
I thought we used a subset of an user id file, but that seems not right.
Sorry for the rambling post, but it does need a little detail I think.
