sid history fileserver resource access via ad groups access denied


  • hi

    we plan to migrate our root domain/sub domain setup to one central ad forest

    we want to use sid history to access shares in the old forest from new forest

    atm the shares are configured:


    Domain Admins -> Full Access
    System -> Full Access
    AD Group with Users -> Change

    We did a Test and created a new User in the New Forest and added the SID of a User from Source Forest to the Sidhistory Field...

    The Source User is in many AD Groups to Access different Shares in the Source Forest, but the Target Forest User cannot Access these Shares "gets Access Denied"

    If we put the Source User direct on a Share without a AD Group the Access works from the Target User using Sid History.

    Now the Question is does Sid History works with Ad Groups on Resources? i tryd all Scopes Local,Global,Universal it doesnt matter only when i add the User direct to the Share it works.

    In your new forest, the user must be a member of a group that has the
    "old" group SID in its SID history.
    And be aware of token bloat :)

    Simple answer - Yes. Make sure SID History is enabled and SID Filtering is disable on domain trust.
