I have multiple pelco IP cameras in a stand alone domain and would like to make them accessible from select computers within a separate domain. The "pelco domain" was previously accessed by a stand alone computer with no outside access. All of the Digital Video Recorders and cameras have IP addresses separate from the other "work domain"
Here's the pieces involved: Pelco 8100 DVRs, Cisco POE48 switches, windows Server 2003 R2 (work domain), Windows 7 and xp client computers, Sonic wall NSA 250 firewall
Can I just plug the "pelco domain" into the switch and configure the stand alone computer to address both domains? Or would I have to configure the "work domain" controller to address the "pelco domain".
Security of the "pelco domain" and tightly controlled access to the cameras and recordings on it would be a major factor. VPN access through the firewall is desirable.
Any suggestions you experts may have would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

First create a trust between two domains "work domain" & "pelco domain".
Then add a workstation in any of these two domains and try to access any resources(IP cameras) from that machine.

Thursday, February 14, 2013 7:01 PMWhat is the best way to physically connect these two domains? I know this sounds like an elementary question but the "pelco domain" was installed as a stand alone network from the "work domain" can I just patch the two domains together by plugging a cable between switches?

You need to contact your network admin/vendor for establishing physical connectivity between two domain.Once network connectivity is establish you can create one-way or two way trust to access the resources.
Checklist: Creating a forest trust
Ensure that DNS is set correctly between the forest DC's and there no dns name resolution issue,with required port open for AD domain and trust.Check the forwards or secondary zone is set corrrectly between the domains.
How to configure a firewall for domains and trusts
In order to add users in AD from one domain another domain either to computers/groups/AD,then you need to use AGDULP method. Also, add the DNS suffix in the clients NIC for faster domain location.
Accessing resources across forests
Hope this helps
