Description (partial)

AD environment configured in a way where there are several domains and all domains have two way trust between one another.

 USER 1 configured in Domain B but  a group created only in Domain A (which is the primary domain). 

The User is in Domain B and the group is in Domain A.

Would like for ACS to be able to do Cross domain group mapping.

ACS pulls the the GUID for a specific user in AD and that contains the tokenGroup attribute/list.

That list is comprised of only the groups in that domain (in this example Domain B).  Therefore the tokenGroup list from Domain B is not going to contain Domain A groups.

Conditions:, VM, 2 servers in Distributed deployment.

AD set up with multiple Domains all with two way trust.

Domain A in AD set up as primary domain with groups configured while Domain B is set up with users in that group. 

Have the users in Domain B be added to the Groups in Domain A.

Have Authorization Polices set up to match users in Domain B but with Groups in Domain A.
