Hi All,

I am relatively new to sharepoint and Azure.

The company have asked for out file and print server Data to be migrated/moved to Sharepoint. I have not completed such a task previously so no experience.

The current Print server is on Domain A and all the security groups and file access permmisioning etc points to Domain A.

We currently access the file & print data from a different Domain B. This is accessed through SID history.

If we move/migrate data to Sharepoint on Domain B will users still have access to the data given that all the permissioning etc point to security groups in Domain A?

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Regards.

    Hi @czql5v,

    Thank you for posting in this community.Users in domain A cannot access files in domain B directly. For domain B, users in domain A are external users.

    If you want users in domain A to be able to continue to access files in domain B, set the following settings in Domain B:

    1.Configure external collaboration settings in Azure AD. External collaboration settings let you specify what roles in your organization can invite external users for B2B collaboration. If you don't want users in your domain A to be able to invite external users to domain B, then this setting can be skipped.

    Here are the exact setup steps: Configure external collaboration settings.

    2.Adding users in domain A as external users to Azure AD.

    Here are the exact setup steps: Add guest users to the directory.

    The user profile for users of Domain A is like DomainAemailaddress#EXT#@domainB.

    3. Change the organization-level external sharing setting of sharepoint. Here set all guests who are already in your directory can access your SharePoint. You can choose the type of setting according to your situation.
