Kindly help,
having vista enterprise, with administrator userid on client system i can acess server shared resources by giving credentials as username : administrator and pwd :xxx.

with client logon username, i can map shared folders of server with giving the below credentials as username : administrator@abc.local & pwd : xxx.

after next day morning for mapping the same procedure had to be followed.

Error displays if i directly access server as a client username as “Trust relationship between primay domain and trusted domain had been failed”.

waiting for urgent reply.

Are you running active directory or just as a standalone server?

Assuming you have a domain did you join the vista pc to the domain? It would appear from the trust message you did not.

Did you setup users on the server? This also appears not to have been done or you would not be using the administrator account [very bad to use for client logons]

Dear Wanderer,

First of all thanks for reply.

i had local server with all applications running with name :

apart from that we have corporate server at germany on which AD is running with name :

all vista clients are working under this domain.

till now there is a trust relationship as external\2 way between the above servers.

i got msg from our partner(germany) that trust between our local server and AD domain server has been removed.

he told to migrate from old server to domain where my username has all admin rights to do that job.

i want clarification that migration means joining my local server to domain ?

is that won't affect my working atmosphere?

Till now local server is acting as DHCP and application server for all vista clients.

Due to trust removal, mapping of local server drives are affected.

when tying to join my local server to domain, it alerts with demote msg.

first time i'm working on this platform.

waiting for solution and positive answer

Folks in germany are clear as mud aren't they?

They are asking you to do away with your domain and join the server to theirs.

Given distance and bandwidth considerations I would not consider that a great plan but they are the boss apparently.

You run dcpromo and demote the server to a standalone server. You then run dcpromo again and join their forest.

Make sure your dns server has a entry for the before you try joining the .com

Things will change for you due to what policies they roll out to you.
