Domain Login Issue

Hi,

We using Winodws 2003 domain controllers for the domain A and Windows server 2000 domain controllers for domain B.

We have trust between domain A and B both incoming and Outgoing trust.

All the domain controllers are running fine for both the domains.

But when a user from Doamin B Logonto the domain controller/member server of Domain A with Domain B credentials then it is giving the follwoing error.


"The system could not log you on. Make sure your User name and domain are correct, then type your password again. Letters in passwords must be typed using the correct case. Make sure that Caps Lock is not accidentally on".

We have tested the trust and it is working fine. Please suggest us how to resolve this issue.

It is very urgent. Thanks in advance.

a) Can the user log into a PC on the the trusted domain without problems? ( could be a server restriction)
b) I assume the user IS selecting the correct domain name from the drop down on the logon screen?

This is by design. The purpose of a trust relationship is to allow a user to logon to a computer in either domain but that user must specify which domain where account is located. The DC then passes the logon credential backto the domain where the user account resides. That's why you get the trustingdomain listed in the drop down list for domains on the logon screen.

And also tell me if you have tested the Trust 2 ways and is that working fine .

Can you also check configuring forwarders of the domain name on each DC which u have configured the windows trust

netdom trust testlabs/domain:<legacyDomainName> /userD:<administrator from LegacyDomain> /passwordD: *  /verify /verbose

Type the password associated with the object user: <type the password>

Right you still need to select DomainA in the drop down box if the user account is from Domain A. If a user account is part of DomainA then user can NOT log on in DomainB then user will allows log on into Domain A.

You can add permissions with Domain Trusts so, both domain's can access both domain's resources but the domain users will still need to authenticate too their domain

So a user in Domain B remotes to a server in Domain A, puts their username from domain B in, Puts their Password from Domain B in AND selects DOMAIN B from the drop down list of servers and THEN you get that error yes?

If so I would suguest either a network issue OR a DNS Issue.

I would suggest DNS issue as well. Test your trusts again

Are you using DNS Conditional Forwarders for DNS for Domain trusts?
