Tree root trust - Access Denied

Hi all,

Building a new AD network I've setup a forest: alpha.forest and the tree root domain beta.local so all the users will log on to the domain 'beta'.

The automatic trust between them is only one way; if I validate the trust on Alpha it's fine.  If I validate the trust on Beta if fails with access denied.  I then log in with Alpha's admin credentials and I'm told it's all good.  I then retry the test and if fails again.

Can't see any errors in either event log at all.

Any advice most welcome.

Thanks
Paul.

"alpha.forest and the tree root domain beta.local"

Trust issues aside I do not quite understand what you have done? why build 2 forrests?

the whole point of having a forrest is that you can have a single security boundry with many domains.

so you should have a root domain

root.local then maybe a child domain called alpha which would be alpha.root.local or whatever.

It's not two forests, it's a child domain but we wanted it's own name for branding / locale reasons. ie wanted the users to log into 'beta'.
