    Hello everybody,

    I hope somebody can help me, we have a weird problem here.

    Following situation:

    Domain1 - Domain in business setting
    Domain2 - Domain in privat home of my boss.

    Now he connects from Domain 2 to the business network (Domain 1) using

    Now he can connect to the shares of domain using his laptop which is
    registered in Domain 1.
    But if he tries to connect with a computer from Domain 2, it does not
    work. He gets the authetification window, plugs in his credentials and
    right away the authentification window reappears. On his machine all of
    this leave no trace in the event viewer.

    Now on the DC of Domain 1 I can see in the event viewer that the
    credentials that were passed a legid. Now the weird thing.
    The log says first that the user wants to connect. Then the rights are
    set. The next message is that he successfully connected to the domain.
    And now . . . the next message tells me that he is diconnected.
    How does this happen? Does anybody have an idea? Why is the user
    immediatly disconnected he authenticated against the AD?

    Thank you very much for your help!!

  2. Is there a firewall of some sort between the two. This is usually the
    culprit, some port isn't allowed to communicate/

    -So with Domain 1 everything is okay? He connects and has access to all
    machines in the network?
    -How is he accessing to the machines in Domain2? Is that Domain2 in a
    different forest? Is it in a different subnet? Is there any trust between
    the Domains? When he is asked for credentials, what credentials is he typing
    (format)? Can he ping the machine in domain2? Do you have any Firewall
    between those machines? You said that the user is disconnected from AD? What
    log did you read that, can you post here?

    I hope that the information above helps you.
    Have a Nice day.

    thanks for your reply. The domains have no trust between them. The
    credentials were entered DOMAIN\username.

    Luckily, for whatever reason, the problem is solved now. Who knows what
    went wrong, but since he could ping all computers in domain 2 and use
    other services as, for instance, remote desktop, I dont think it was a
    firewall/connection problem.

    Thank you two again for your help!!

    Kind regards,
