How to see contents of another Windows domain using LDAP

Hi everyone,

Right now, my company has forest/domain A and forest/domain B with a non-transitive external trust between the two. We do not create user accounts for domain B and instead rely on the trust relationship between domain A and B for user authentication in these environments. The Windows OS and other Microsoft programs handle this setup quite gracefully, but anything relying exclusively on LDAP is only able to see the contents of domain B even when we use the Global Catalog LDAP port (:3268).

Is there a solution to being able to perform LDAP queries and binds from a trusted DC to a trusted domain?

I am unable to understand what exactly your question is but if you are asking about accessing something in domain A from domain B, you might want to try it with FQDNs.
