    We have DomainA & DomainB will external, no transitive trust on domain level.
    DomainA have DFS namespace, how would I configure DomainB / assign permission
    on DomainB to allow domainB user can see DomainA Namespace ?

    Marcin,

    Thank you for your input. We found DomainB PC can't see \\DomainA.com\DFS
    namespace if we use DomainB DNS & WINS. We need to change that PC using
    Domain A DNS & WINS IP as 1st one, it could resolve it.

    I would ask - Is that any way to set DomainB DNS and WINS to get DomainA DFS
    nameSpace infomation ?

    Regards,
    Edward

    Edward,
    configure secondary or stub DNS zone for domainA AD namespace on Domain B
    DNS server - and vice versa (alternatively, you can use for this purpose
    conditional forwarding - assuming you are operating in Windows Server 2003
    environment). Refer to
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc778475.aspx for details.
    As far as WINS is concerned, you can use WINS replication to provide
    resolution across two environments (more info at
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc786754.aspx)

    Thk for info. I will check how to do on DNS. Since we use QIP as DNS server.

    I have one more thing not full understand. When I browse \\domainA.com\DFS
    , Would such info provided by DNS ?

    We currently have replication on WINS also between DomainA and DomainB, I
    expect it could show \\DomainA.com\DFS.

    Regards,
    Edward
