Cross Trust User Details - Share Point

Hi experts

We have 2 companies, we have just set up a forest trust between our 2 forests and have begun sharing resources, it all works fine however there is a small glitch in one of the domains. laid out as follows;

forest1.co.uk
domain1.co.uk


forest2.co.uk
domain2.co.uk
domain3.co.uk

from domain1.co.uk, on our SharePoint 2007 test site, we add a user from domain2 as follows;

domain2\user2 - and then check names. IT resolves the users full name and populates their job title, email address and location etc.

from domain1.co.uk, on our SharePoint 2007 test site, we add a user from domain3 as follows;

domain3\user3 - and then check names. It resolves, but it resolves differently! like so; domain3\user3 and does not pull through and of the users personal information, and is displayed as domain3\user3

Anyone have any ideas why this is happening and what we may do to fix it?

Many thanks!

This sounds more like an AD issues. SharePoint only works with what AD provides. Check the domain or forest trusts. There may be some explicit one way trusts established making this do what it does.

Also, check the the SharePoint system account has permissions in AD to read, or replicate all of the personal information from Domain3.

Hope that helps...
