First, you had better understand Windows domain trustrelationship
before working on Samba issue. Then you will understand what to be


If you do not mind security, enabling Guest access is an easy way.

And if domain A users want to access a share on domain B, to specify
correct user and whose password will make them access.

Otherwise, you have to set up domain trustrelationship between domain
A and B, and set correct permissions on every share you want to enable
access from other domain's users.
