Hi,

We are installing a couple of member server belonging to domain A from forest A. But users belong to another domain B from forest B. Our intention is to consolidate both domains but the process is quite slow and at the moment we have to work that way.

So, we have several users from domain B using file and printing server from domain A. Users are complaining as they're losing connection to the server and it seems everything it's Ok.

The server was located at a peripheral office with no DC and GC, but communications are not infallibel but quite safe, so we haven't the priority of a DC at this office.

Domain A- Windows 2000 domain native mode.
Domain B- Windows 2003 domain native mode.

Any idea?.

Thanks in advance.

Assuming you have set this up correctly I would firstly  (1) check your dns is setup correctly  look at event logs and run netdiag/dcdiag (2) monitor the site to site link and see how unstable it is
