I'm having a strange problem:
I have 5 domains...to keep things easy, let's call them domain 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5

Domain 5's pre-Windows 2000 domain name is 6
The trust is between domain 1 and all other domains...trying to get to a dfs share from Domain 5 does not work. But from all other domains, it does.
The trust is between 6 and 1, not 5 and 1. 
I'm guessing this is the problem, but not sure what will happen if I change the pre-Windows 2000 domain name to 5.
Anyone experienced this previously?
Thanks in advance.

By the way, just so everyone knows, I've tried logging into a server in domain 5 as 6\phil and phil@5.local and still can't get to the dfs share that has the rights set to 6\phil full control.

Hi,

You really did you best to make this confusing [smile]

> The trust is between 6 and 1, not 5 and 1. 

5 and 6 are the same domains, right? The nature of the trust (external of forest) does not really matter in this case, although forest trust is better. Don't rename the domain -- recreate the trust as type forest if you want to go this route.

More likely you have a nameresolution problem somewhere. Try using FQDNs, and recreate the DFS targets if you have to.

You are right, wkasdo, the problem is nameresolution. I'm working on that right now.
Thanks for the help.
Sorry, didn't mean to make it confusing (I understood it! LOL).
