Linux | forest trust


We have a one-way forest trust.  We have Linux machines and users who are in groups from the other forest.

Using SSSD from Redhat, It seems to be that Linux cannot resolve foreign security principles across a trust.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

All I can say is, you are not alone in this feat ... And, the news isn't good, I haven't come across any decent solution, they all involve using the SID and mapping the SID manually, things like that.

This post is quite interesting listing possible workarounds, but the person is also not very hopeful.

Ah, but I assumed (probably my fault then) it needed to work without the use of a third-party application, Powerbrokeropen should indeed work (it's the previous Likewise Open, which was able to do this) ... It uses RPC to lookup users via a one-way trust.
