Trouble registering EPO server in different domain

Hi, I am trying to register an EPO server in domain B with the EPO server in domain A in order to transfer systems from Server A to Server B, as described in this KB:

At step 3e, I've had trouble getting the connection to successfully test. I've verified the password is correct, and I've registered both domain A and B LDAP servers to both servers. I've noticed a couple different errors throughout this process in the orion.log:

Login failed. The login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication.

This was happening in the beginning, which is when I registered the LDAP servers. I think that seemed to have fixed this error.

Now I'm seeing this: 

ERROR [http-nio-8444-exec-3] server.OrionLoginModule - Failed to login due to invalid password for user: system_EPOSVR
ERROR [http-nio-8444-exec-5] auth.OrionUser - OrionUser: invalid auth type:pwd

I just tried again and it doesn't seem the orion log is updating from this attempt, but the account did got locked out and eventually the test failed. 

Server A is 5.9.1 in mixed mode/not FIPS

Server B is 5.9.10 in FIPS 140-2 mode

Make sure that we have two way  transitive trust between domains.

Re: Trouble registering EPO server in different domain

If there is no trust between the domains, you might need to use an sql authenticated account for the database of other domain server.  You also need to make sure there is dns resolution - in the nic properties on the epo server you are using to register the other, make sure to add the dns server for that domain there as well as append dns suffix of the other domain.
