Trusted Domains

Hello Experts:

I want to verify what I have been told that 2003 SBS Small Business Server can't trust other domains?  I know the option is there in AD Domains and Trusts but just wanted to confirm if this is true.  If it is true, then what should I upgrade the server to--so I can trust domains.

You guys are are the greatest and thanks for the help.

Steve

Yes, it's true... in what way do you need to trust domains?

The part where you say "If it is true, then what should I upgrade the server to--so I can trust domains."

to== equals transition pack. You will need to purchase this to convert SBS to normal 2003 standard.

If you just want to share files you don't have to create a domain trust.  Domain Trusts are much more about full management of multiple locations, as well as sharing various network resources such as Active Directory, Exchange, SQL Servers, etc.

If it's files, or even more, you should take a look at www.groove.net which can synchronize various things between companies.  It's much less expensive, and much easier to manage.

If you used the Transition Pack as plimpias linked above, you are talking about thousands of dollars to migrate to separate servers.
