Setup trusts between 2003 SBS and 2000 server
Posted on 2004-08-28
I really hope you might be able to help me out with a serious problem i am about to encounter. Ok here goes.
I am installing an SBS 2003 server in tot Belfast site to replace 2000 server and exchange 2000. We also have a Dublin site which is main site and all mail comes. All mail for Belfast users gets routed to Belfast server. Dublins DC is running 2000 server with Exchange 2000
Dublin and Belfast are 2 seperate domains
Dublin internal domain= fgs.local
Belfast int domain= fgsbelfast.local
Both Dublin and Belfast email address are email@example.com.
The problem i have is that i have read that it is not possible to setup trusts between 2 different domains with SBS. Unfortunately i am travelling 100 mles up to Belfast on Monday to set this up and only found out about this limitation few days ago. I have searched the web endlessly for a way around this problem but everyone says it cannot be down except for a few saying there is a backdoor or maybe some registry change on SBS to allow trusts.
I am really at my wits end and would really appreciate any help or advice you might have.
Please let me know if you need any more info that i might have left out.
Thanks in advance
