SID Resolution Across Trusted Domains



I have 2 W2k domains. Domain A is running W2k Server as DCs Domain B is
running W2k3 as DCs. Both are trusted. I am having an issue where Domain B
will not resolve the User-friendly names for the SIDs from Domain A. The
only error posted is "Some of the objects names cannot be shown in their
user-friendly form. This can only happen if the object is from an external
domain and that domain is not available to translate the object's name". Any
ideas? I have searched and searched for this one. Everything works, this is
just a nuissance.

There is a user right called "allow anonymous SID to name translation" in
the default domain controller policy for each domain.
You need to enable this policy.
