  • Hi Dharmu,

    as per :

    You should consider disabling SID filter quarantining only in the following situations:
    • You have an equally high level of confidence in the administrators who have physical access to domain controllers in the trusted domain and the administrators with such access in the trusting domain.
    • You have a strict requirement to assign universal groups to resources in the trusting domain, even when those groups were not created in the trusted domain.
    • Users have been migrated to the trusted domain with their SID histories preserved, and you want to grant them access to resources in the trusting domain based on the SID history attribute.

    I assume that the last of these conditions applies in your case
