two-way domain trust SharePoint


  • Hi Guys,

    We have 2-way trust and environment is as sharepoint 2007 OS server 2003. When i try to search users from 2nd domain, i cant find users.

    when i do search on server 2008, i can find users.

    How/what should i do on 2003 OS, so i can find users from 2nd domain while using People finder in sharepoint.

  • If I understand you correctly, you have a MOSS 2007 farm with the SharePoint servers running Windows Server 2003. You have two domains which have a two-way domain trust. I am assuming SharePoint is installed to servers in DOMAIN1 and you want the People Picker to return users from DOMAIN2.

    Out of the box this should work without any configuration. Was the domain trust previously different (perhaps a one-way trust)? Is the trust recent?

    Also, can you please clarify what you mean when you say "when i do a search on server 2008?"

  •  Hi,

    I agree with Jason. By default, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 talks to the domain controller for the domain in which Office SharePoint Server 2007 was installed and all trusted domains for two-way trusted domains.

    People Picker will issue queries to all two-way trusted domains and two-way trusted forests to search People & Groups out-of-the-box. People Picker uses the Windows SharePoint Services Web Application logon identity to access the target domain/forest.  If the Web Application pool does not have access to the target domain/forest, People Picker will need to be configured to use an account with access to the target domain/forest using the following STSADM operations:

    STSADM –o setapppassword –password <password>

    For the detailed information, see
