I need to create a sql server integration services job that transfers files from one domain to another. So it will need access to fileshares on two domains. Files will appear (due to user actions) on a folder in a fileshare on Domain A. The SSIS job will run from a server on domain B - and the job needs to be able to read the files from domain A - and transfer them to domain B. The SSIS sql agent job runs (by default) using a domain account for domain B. How do i grant that account to be able to access fileshares in Domain A ?

    That's nothing SQL Server related, but to Windows AD, so better change the tagging of your post.

    Hi @Greg Booth ,

    In this article we look at the methods used for working with SQL Server data, and use of file shares to support delivery of production databases with containers.

    Please refer to the following links:

    How to access shared files in two different domains

    Best regards,
    Mona
