The organization which i work for has just taken over another company
which has a windows 2003 DC. I have created trusts between the two
domains, i can log on both domains but i am having problems when i try
to log on to the domain of the company which we have just taken over.
Users from 1 domain are failing to log on to the other domain.

Is it possible to user for users on Domain "A" logon to Domain "B" with
the same user name and password without having to recreate their
accounts on either DCs. Your help will be much appreciated.

Hello fedza77,

You can not logon to the other domain, authentication always occur to the
domain where the account belongs to. But as you have trust configured you
should be able to access all resources in the other domain that are configured
to grant access for the other domain users.

See here about:

Each forest/domain has their own accounts and resources. In your case the
accounts in Domain A can only authenticate to Domain A and the accounts in
Domain B can only authenticate in Domain B. This is the way you want to
treat it. If a user from Domain A needs access to resources in Domain B
then simply grant the permissions in B for the user. If you wanted users to
logon to both forest/domains then they would have to manage two sets of
credentials which is very cumbersome and messy.

As Paul and Meinolf indicated, each domain have their own accounts specific
to that domain. Therefore, user1 from domain1 can't logon to domain2.
However, if you have a trust created, you can take the Domain Users group
from domain1 and add it to domain2's Domain Local Users group, and
vice-versa. This will allow users in domain1 to access resources on domain2
that Domain Users on domain2 can access, or you can add user groups from
domain1 to domain2's resources (such as printers and shared folders).

There is also a tool called MIIS to allow you to synchronize certain
features between the trusted forests or domains. Take a look at this tool.
