Problems accessing shares on other domain

We have a one way trust in place between DomainA and DomainB.

I am having an issue with some servers (others work fine) whereby I am unable to access the shares on a server in DomainB from DomainA.

Whilst testing, I have placed the domain admins of DomainA into the server in DomainB. I know that this has taken affect as I can login to the server with my DomainA credentials after doing this.

When I am on a machine in DomainA (logged in with my domain Admin account) and I try to resolve
\\server
I get all the shares returned

Clicking on any of the shares gives me 'access denied'

I have checked the security logs on the sever which tell me that the Access has been granted - Audit Success!

If I try accessing any of the admin shares (admin$, C$ etc.) then I get a prompt for a username and password

The permissions on the shares are 'Everyone' = Full Control and I have also checked using effective file permissions that the rights are correct.

It would *appear* to only be affecting Server 2008 (we also run 2003) systems but other Server 2008 systems are OK.

Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Just to confirm; you do have some servers in DomainA that can successfully access those same shares on DomainB?

if so, have you already tried a gpupdate on the server in DomainA that's having problems accessing the shares?

--No, the shares on 'some' of the servers in DomainB are not accessible from any location in DomainA

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I would definitely look into the link posted by ppcdev and see if any of the potential solutions listed in it would work.
