Read-Only share over Forest Trust AD 2003

I have 2 Forests, test.prv and test2.prv. I have a group of users that need to get pictures from one to the other, but I need to maintain strict security and they can only write to the share from test.prv and need to have read only from test2.prv. I have to have the share present in test.prv domain as well. I have a functional trust setup. I have a group from test2.prv added to the server and share in test.prv, the authentication firewall is letting them to the share, but prompts for a password. I have the group's permissions as read only. It will not let me use the test2.prv credentials, but the test.prv credentials work. The problem is they have write access because the test.prv account does(this is what I assume). Is there a way to make it read-only over the forest trust only?

I am trying to find other ways to accomplish this task, if anyone has another way, let me know.

Check if your domain is in Mixed Mode or Native Mode. If domain is still on MM upgrade it to NM.
Usually this kind of membership rights can be solved by using group nesting and universal groups, which are only available in Native Mode.

ormerodrutter,

I have both domains in Native mode. I have the users in a Global Group, that is part of a Universal Group all in test2.prv. Then that universal group is added to a Domain Local group on test.prv. This group is then applied to the share.

Thanks for the input.

I found this to be a problem with the authentication firewall of the trust. I got it to work, but not as I was hoping. I went a different route. Thanks for the comment and may be at some point I will need to accomplish this and I will look back here for help. Thanks.
