Hi All,

This should be straight forward, but I can't think why its not working.

We have two domains.  We'll call  them domain1.local and domain2.local

There's a two external non-transitive trusts setup between the two domains.

I've shared out a folder called  \\MyServer.domain1.local\data and granted the everyone group read access.  People in both domains can access the share.

I then created a sub folder called  \\MyServer.domain1.local\data\finance

..remove permission inheritance, and setup two global security groups (one in each domain) with full control.

A user in domain2.local has logged off and on and I've confirmed the have the new security group.  However they can't see the sub folder.


Any ideas why?

Check the sub folder do the group in question have permission to access the same.

In order to add users in AD from one domain another domain either to computers/groups/AD,then you need to use AGDULP method. Also, add the DNS suffix in the clients NIC for faster domain location.

Add the User Accounts to Global Groups> Global Groups to Universal Group> Universal Groups to Domain Local Groups > Domain Local Groups to the group you want to assign the permission.http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb742592.aspx
