[Samba] Re: Need some guidance re: two domains sharing the same workstations

Hello Matt,

I've had similar misfortunes too with interdomain trusts.  I think 
you're working along the right lines since you seem to want to do the 
same thing as I.

However the NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL is an error I always get when trying 
to connect to the IPC$ share of the PDC of the trusting domain.  In my 
case the trusting PDC is a Windows 2003 Server.

I know it's not an issue of credentials but something else; but I don't 
know what.  Judging by the traffic on this list someone HAS got this to 
work.  Anyone care to comment.

Kind regards,
