setting up a multi-domain network
Posted on 2009-04-14
We have a client running server 2003 network (also running exchange).
We are adding a new location (and new domain) to the network and I am wondering what is the best way to set this up;
Each location will have a seperate domain name (mostly for email purposes) but will need to share files and users will need access to email from both domains - for this we will obviously install a VPN.
The basic scenario will be that users from each domain will be set up with a local folder (for data) and an email address that corresponds to their domain. But they will each need access to files at both locations and also we will probably give each site access to the other sites email via outlook web access.
I have been reading up on cross domain trusts etc, is this the best way to go? I take it that as far as file sharing goes, a domain trust will solve that problem. ut what hapens with email - will users at one site be able to automatically authenticate to email at the other site through OWA?
Or is there an alternate solution?
