Problems using DFS accross a Forest Trust
Posted on 2008-11-07
I have two Windows 2003 AD domains with a forest-level trust established between them. DNS forwarding has been configured properly and resource access (\\server.domain.com\share works properly between the two forests.
I want to have users in Forest1 access a DFS (domain root) that is located in forest2. The actual shares are located within forest2. When users browse to \\forest2.com\shared (DFS root) they recieve the following error:
"Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because machine is unavailable, or access has been denied."
If the same user attempts to access the actual share via \\sever2.forest2.com\shared they are able to access the files correctly, just not through the DFS root.Rights are assigned in forest2 via DLG (Domain Local Group) which includes members from forest1.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
