Sharing network resources between two SBS domains.

We have two SBS 2003 domains in the same buliding that share a large network multifunction A3 printer and some network shares.

Domain A owns the multifunction printer (which they charge for usage and has the two NIC's
Domain B needs to print to the multifunction printer and access some network shares on Domain A

We did this by the SBS 2003 server on domain A running two network cards so that the other domain users could use a username and password to connect to the printer when needing to print A3 and connect to the network shares.

Now Domain A which had the dual NIC setup has been upgraded to a SBS 2008 server.  We have found out that SBS 2008 does not support a dual network card setup.

Can anybody help me to solve this problem?

Many thanks in advance.

A quick way I guess is to use VPN. Since users at Domain B had their own userid on Server A that could serve the purpose of printing.

Another way is simply get user at Domain B to use RDP - but has issues that it is an admin connection and only two connections are support by Server A.

If these are on different subnets you should be able to put in static routes either on the workstation or the router these two networks are on.
