Re: Printing To Printers On Another Domain

First a trust relationship needs to be craeted.
Domain 2 needs to trust domain 1, that way users in domain 1 can use the rescources of domain 2.

Then you need to create a group (from active directory snap in), you are given the chance to either choose global group or domain local group.

In domain 2 create a domain local group and add the global group that you created (Containing the user from domain 1) and give permission to the domain local group created to print.

Rule of thumb when you are dealing with groups:

Membership Scope

– DLG User and group from same Forest (MemberShip opposite to its name Domain Local) Same domain (Scope same as the name Domain local)

– GG Same Domain (Membership opposite to its name Global group) Forest (Scope same as the name Global Group)

Domain Local Groups are usually used to assign permissions to groups
and or users to use a specific resource such as a printer or share.
They have scope only within that domain.
