We currently are using LDAP to authenticate to our wireless. We’ve built an AD trust between our domain and our parent company’s domain, so we don’t have to create accounts for people who already exist within our parent company. I’m trying to get our 3200 controller (6.1 code) to be able to authenticate users within the other domain. Can the controllers handle LDAP referrals? I’ve tried setting it up, but keeps getting a “User not found” error when debugging security process authmgr.

You need to authenticate to the "global catalog" for this to work:
Point to the global catalog server, like if it is an ldap server and make the port 3268, instead of 389.

Two different groups handle the two different domains. So I'm not sure how willing they would be to using Global Catalog, especially when on domain probably has close to 100,000 users. But thanks for the recommendation.
But I believe I found out the issue I was having. It was a combination of pointing to the wrong server and a firewall dropping packets. Just waiting for the FW to be updated.
