Hello everyone,

I'm not sure if I'm in the right forum or not but I will try anyway. I will
explain a bit the context of the problem. We are about to migrate our NT4
domain to a new 2003 domain (new domain name on a new server). There is
currently a dual domain trust between the 2 domains to ease the migration
process. Everything works fine until I try to share a folder in NT4 domain.
Let's say I have a local group "sales" in NT4 and a global security group
"sales" in AD. The group "Sales" in NT4 has access to a share folder named
"CLIENTS". The thing I did was to add the AD's "Sales" group into the NT4's
"sales" group (member of it) thinking the AD "sales" group would have the
same access as the NT4's "sales" group. Unfortunately it didn't work. I'm
probably missing something there because if I add a user or a group from AD's
domain directly in the "CLIENTS" folder sharing permission it works.

Basically I want both "sales" groups in both domains to have the same access
on a file server member of the NT4 domain. Is it possible to do so without
changing each folders permissions?

Anyone has an idea? I hope I explained it correctly.
