I have 2 domains connected via a VPN connection between 2 sonicwall  fiewalls. Basically I need to add users/groups from one domain lets call it remotedomain to folder permissions on the file server on localdomain.

Is there any way I can do this? I don't want to have to add individuals by creating accounts on that server. I would like to just add remotedomain\users to the folder permissions on localdomain\fileserver

Is this possible?

Do you have trust between those domains? If so, create in desired domain Domain Local Group, assign it to folder(s) and set up appropriate permissions. Then in other domain create Global Group and place there all users who needs access to remote resources. Add that newly created Global Group into Domain Local Group in other domain. That should solve your problem.

You can also place there Global Group in Domain Local Group within the same domain.

Krzysztof

I don't know. I'm guessing not, but will have to check as I came into this job after the other IT people had left.
