Here is the situation: I have Domain A and Domain B. The two have a two way, domain wide trust relationship. I have a SharePoint server in each domain, we'll call them SP Server A in Domain A and SP Server B in Domain B.
SP Server A is running SP 2010 on Win 2K8 R2 in a Win 2K8 R2 AD environment (Domain A).
SP Server B us running SP 2007 on Win 2K3 in a Win2K3 AD environment (Domain B).
I can add users from Domain A or B to SP Server A with no issues. I can add users from Domain A or B to *files and folders* on SP Server B with no issues. But, I *cannot* add users from Domain A to any of the SharePoint permissions groups on any web applications on SP Server B.
The Server B people picker simply doesn't see anyone from Domain A. I have tried multiple times to run:
stsadm.exe -o setproperty -url http://domain1.example.com:80
sts” -pv “domain:domain1.example.co
oginName, P@ssword; domain:domain3.example.com
And it always reports back succesful, but no matter what I put in those fields, it has no effect on what the names that the people picker pulls (it always only sees people from Domain B).
I have been able to add users from Domain A to a security group in Domain B, then add that security group to SP Server B. It takes the group, but am I still unable to access any sites on SP Server B using credentials from users in Domain A.
What am I doing wrong? It seems like every little thing is in its place and yet my older SP web application won't recognize that the other domain exists, even though the server itself (that is, Windows) sees it just fine.
