I am getting stumped.
I have a test environment set up. I am trying to get a client in one domain to access shares in a seperate domain. Also have a user in one domain access an exchange server in that seperate domain. I have a single forest with 2 seperate domains.
ABC.local and XYZ.local. I have 2 sites setup SiteA and SiteX with a DC in each. The trusts seem to be setup and each site has a GC. The DC is also a file server and the XYZ.local hosts the exchange server. Which is also the Schema master. What I want is the least amount of CALs needed to purchased.
User logs into ABC.local takes up a CAL. This client is able to access a share on Server.ABC.local using the group I created in the ABC.local domain. Then I browse to a share on the Server.XYZ.local in which I created a group and added the user to that group. But this user cannot even open the share. I give everyone full and full, Share and NTFS. I don't see any errors in the event viewer on either server. I do see a CAL taken up on the Server.XYZ.local stating it is from the ABC domain.
What am I missing? The purpose of this exercise is so a user in ABC.local can access their mailbox in XYZ.local without creating the same user in both domains and having to purchase a user CAL in both. If I can't even get this share working I am not sure I will be able to get the mailbox working.
