Domain Trusts

I am dealing with a domain Trust issue:

Domain A can get into Domain B, but Domain B can not access Domain A.  It gives user permission errors.  

Domain A is running on Windows 2012 in VMsphere  Domain B is running in Windows 2003.

I inherited the this network and there is really no reason why both Domains can not fully trust each other.  

Domain B is going to be taken off line in a few moths  and letting the Domains fully trust each other will make moving the data easier.  

Currently I am trying to copy user folder data from a user in Domain B.  I can copy the Data  I am in Domain A, but the user in domain B can not access the share.  She does have share permissions.

On Domain B Domain Controller:

Out Going Trust, Domain Name A Trust Type is forest Transitive is Yes

Incoming Trust: Domain name, Domain A, Trust Type, Forest,  Transitive, Yes

It looks like from these settings that Domain B is trusted by Domain A

User in Domain A are currently accessing all of the company Data in Domain B.  All of the data in Domain B has to be moved over to Domain A.

I have two users left in Domain B. A simple answer would be just move the users to Domain A.  One of the users needs a new computer and the second user could be changed over, but I really want to make the domains trust each other that solution will fit both for now.

Would really appreciate some help,

The way you describe your trusts with only one outgoing and one incoming, this is expected behavior. You'd need to set up the trusts going the other way as well for it to behave in both directions the way you desire.

There is a Trust relationship Domain A also has a Trust Relationship for Domain B setup the same way.

Do I have to setup a Trust relation ship in Domain B, add a trust?

I have never set one of these up before.

In Domain B Can I add a trust going the other way on 2003.  I could use a little more explanation help
