Replication of Users between Windows 2000 & 2003 Trusted Domains of Different Forests

Hi there!

I have the following setup:

Domain A - Windows 2000 Server Active Directory - server1.domainA.com (Example name) (USA).
Domain A also has an Exchange Server on which all users have their mailbox.

Domain B - Windows 2003 Server R2 Active Directory - server1.domainB.com (Example name) (India)
Domain A & Domain B both have 2 way trust relationship enabled and works fine.


I am trying to do the following:

Domain A is the primary company in USA and has all the user accounts and their mailboxes on the Exchange Server including the one's in India.

Domain B is the remote location in India and I would like to setup User Replication service between Domain A & B so that the users are automatically replicated in Domain B and I don't have to recreate them one at a time. Can someone please help me out?

I checked on Google and Microsoft's Website, but was unable to follow the instructions.

Replication of user information will only happen between domain controllers within a single domain, not from or to a trusted domain.
The trust only allows you to permit users of domain a to access resources in domain b and vice versa (when establishing a 2way trust as you did). If you want to eliminate duplicate users, migrate to a single domain.
