I have a SharePoint server that is not running on our primary domain. I would like the users to come from AD on our primary domain.

so users can login with their [domain][account].

I would also like the user fields when creating site collections and setting permissions to have AD lookup domain accounts.

Is this possible?

It will need to be a member of that domain in order to be able access the user store and to be able to authenticate the user information supplied.
