Hi Serverfault Universe!
Our medium sized company recently acquired a new company in a remote office with its own domain running Windows Small Business server on their own domain (NEW_DOMAIN). I manage an Active Directory domain (MYDOMAIN) with a majority of servers running Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard.
The remote office needs to access MYDOMAIN ‘s resources such as the SharePoint and intranet site.
Is it not possible to form a domain trust on Small Business server?
What would the least disruptive method be for the new office to access my domain’s resources without having to setup a new domain controller on the remote office’s site and have the user’s converted over to our domain (MYDOMAIN)?
So it turns out there is an ADDITIONAL Domain Controller in NEW_DOMAIN which is running Windows Server 2008 Standard! Excusing my lack of knowledge of SBS, I was not aware that this type of setup (having a standard DC along with a SBS one) was possible. So given this, it should be possible setup a site trust relationship with MYDOMAIN?
