child domain and sysvol replication RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI got a question ,

    I trying to achieve something that may be not  possible .Ill ask  just in case .

    Basically i have simple forest with 1 parent domain and child domain. They both are in seperate physical site and in ads site .

    My main site hold DC from the parent domain and my 2nd site got my dc of my child domain . It 2 way trust in 2 ads site and replication working fine. Everyone old a GC and ADS integrated DNS zone of all the forest . My issue is that my second site hold public web site , in my child domain every critcal service are on different network db /iis/dc ,so the only traffic that can go tru my intersite link is ,full dc replication and rdp from parent to child 1 way . no file sharing or anything else.

    So when I logon into a child domain server with parent domain account , it work ,my child domain proccess login but obviously i dont have acces to the parent sysvol /user gpo /etc .  Is there any way to delegate a copy of my parent sysvol to my child domain and have it process it for logon  ?

    Obviously i can install a new dc over there and create a 2nd management network and all the acl and nat for the different network,etc ,etc or allow the traffic in the LanEx . But in booth case  i create more hole i the network. it what iam trying to avoid here .

  • Hi,

    Do you mean that you want your child domain admin have access to the parent domain's SYSVOL?

    As far as I know SYSVOL is specific and unique for each domain, and I would like suggest you don't share this to child domain, if there is something you want to share to child domain, why not create another share folder for both domain.
