  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting here!
    If you want a user apply the local user's policy when log into a 2way-trusted forest , we need to enable the the following policy: Allow Cross-Forest User Policy and Roaming User Profiles.
    We can set it as following :
    Computer Configuration, double-click Administrative Templates, double-click
    System, and then click Group Policy.
    In the right pane, double-click .
    Click Enabled,

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your reply.

    When you said "several user can't change password", would you please tell more information about the users?
    Are these users random?
    Users from which domain?
    Did they change the password when they log into workstations in their own domain?

    Do you mean : when the users firstly login to the domain B , they try to change the password, and then received the error: "Failed to retrieve configuration information from the domain controller. It is either disabled or not accessible? " If i misunderstand you , please let me know.

    I would recommend you check the following box was checked or not:

  • Hi,

    Then ,please check the mini password age for the users in the group policy.

    Also, All the users are delegated change password permission?

    Did you try to change the password on the client in the local domain , not the trusted domain.
