Cross forest permissions with 2003 server.

I'm doing a forest migration with a mix of 2008 and 2003 servers to new 2016 servers.


When a migrated user is accessing a 2008 or newer server share located in the old domain, all is well.

When a migrated user is accessing a share on the 2003 server, access fails.


sidhistory is enabled and verified, along with sidhistory filter quarntineing being disabled.


I realize 2003 is not officially supported. Just wondering if this is known not work of if there is a possible workaround.


Thank you
