Logon script does not run on a trusted domain

I have two windows 2003 domains in two forests connected via a firewall.  I have established a two way trust between the two domain.  I a able to logon to either domain from either side and I am able to connect to shares on either side.  But when I logon as a user from domain A on a computer in Domain B, (I am able to log on fine and connect to the mailserver in DomainB) my logon script does not run.  Is there anything I am missing?  How do I get my script to Run?

I have all traffic allowed between the two domains except for DHCP traffic.

Thanks for all the Help.

HAs the logon script been replicated to domainB? I would check in %systemroot%\SYSVOL\Domains\Scripts on the DC in domain B, if the scripts not there then it wont run, TBH I dont think it will replicate either, you may have to manually add the scripts.

No.  The logon script was not replicated to domain B.  SHouldn't it run across the domains from domain A?  The account does not exist in domain B, so you can not add a script to an account.  Is there an option I should be setting?

No, it wont work like this, you need to retink your domain setup mate. Give me a shout or reply here if you need a hand.

How do I relink my domain setup?

On a re think Id say your fine tbh, you just need to create the script in domain b as well. Once its there you should be fine. I dont think trusting somains should automatically replicate scripts as I can see it would cause issues.

Just manually create the script and you'll be fine.

I am not sure I am following you here!!!!

Here how it is:
I have domain A and Domain B.  There is trust between the two domains, so user from Domain A can log on Domain A when connected to domain B. The account resides in domain A and not Domain B.  When the user log on to Domain A from Domain B, his/ger logon script in Domain A does not run!!!

I can not modify anything on the account or recreate a script for the account in Domain B, since the account exists in Domain A and not in Domain B.

Sorry, didnt explain myself properly, all you wan to do is on the DC on Domain A copy the contents of \\server\c$\windows\SYSVOL\domain\scripts over to any DC on domain B to the same location. That way the file the account is looking for will be in the place that the account is looking for it.

This does not work.  When you logon to domain B in Domain A, it is looking for a logon script in Domain A and not B.  I tried to copy the directory where the scripts are in Domain A to Domain B., but still does not use them.  I would think it needs to lookup the script across the router and that is not happening.

Any other thoughts on this?

Its not a problem with it crossing the router I can guarantee that. If there was a problem there then there would be no logon at all. The only other thing would be the permissions on SYSVOL on domain A, domain B needs access to it, can you open sysvol on any DC in domain A from domain B

Ok.  Got it.  Added users from Domain A to Users in Domain B and Vise Versa and no logon scrips work from either domain.

Thanks.
