(This is a question about Active Directory domains)
We have merged with another company and are taking over their IT duties.
Our current domain "ourcompany.com" is going to remain, as is their domain "theircompany.com".
Our company has an Exchange 07 server...they currently just use POP3 hosting.
- Can I create a trust relationship and other settings between the two domains that will accomplish the following?
a) Allow for shortname DNS name resolution (I'm thinking this could be accomplished by having search suffixes, but not sure how the DNS replicates between domains
b) Have NTFS security be allowed cross-domain...so that users in 1 domain can access resources in another with their logins. This would also be the case for Sharepoint.
c) Host their email on our Exchange 2007 server using their current email addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org) while still hosting our own email as well and allow for calendar sharing, etc.
Pretty lengthy question but I'm hoping it can be accomplished.
