I have a domain user in a 2003 domain in a remote location. They are attempting to connect to a 2008 domain shared drive via a domain trust.  The machine she is connecting from is on Domain a (2003 domain) the share is Domain B (2008) the username has been added to the share with full control but when I attempt a connection it still asks for the password as if my credentials are bad.

Other users don't have this issue.

There is an identical username in both domains (maybe that's the issue?)

I have attempted to manually add the drive using user/pass format as follows:

DomainA\username
password

Hi

Does the identical account in domain B have the same username and password as the account in domain A?  If they are not then thats the source of the problem

So I'll have to change the password for it each time Domain A changes the password for that account?

Well I think you would have to yes, either that change the login name for that user in either domain so the accounts are not identical
