Process running as different domain user

Posted on 2012-03-29

Hi all

I have following constellation:

Server0
Domain: server-domain.lan
Windows Server 2003
      With Active Directory
      Domain Controller

Server1
Domain: server-domain.lan
Windows Server 2005
      IIS Host (Application Server)


Client0
Domain: server -domain.lan

Client0 is connecting to the domain with user/password
Client0 is hosting a service (dataGetter) retrieving data through WCF from Server1, where security setting of the binding are set to:

<binding name="BasicNetTcpBinding" closeTimeout="00:10:00" openTimeout="00:10:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:10:00" maxReceivedMessageSize="2147483647">
<security mode="Transport">
<transport clientCredentialType="Windows" />
</security>
</binding>

To ensure that only specific user are allowed to use the WCF service from Server1

Now Client0 has to be moved to “client-domain.lan” and will thus not be able to get the credential, which will prohibit “dataGetter” to retrieve data.
Before making changes on the WCF-service of Server1, I would rather have the “dataGetter” process to run in a special account on the Client0. Such as, the physical machine being in the “client-domain” and the process in the “server-domain”.
Is this possible ?

If I understand the question correctly, a user can autheticate to server-domain from client-domain by using the format
  domain\username
along with the appropriate password for that account.  This will require the user in client-domain to autheticate separately.

The only other way I can think to do it would be set up a trust relationship between server-domain and client-domain, and allow the user from client-domain to use the service.

Ok so one solution could be to let the AD of both domain do the trick by setting up a trust relationship between them.
Is this possible between Windows2008-Server and 2003??
Thanks for your support

It should work fine between 2k8 and 2k3.  As I understand it, you should only need a one-way trust.
