2 Network cards in the same machine/trust relationships

I have an OS/2 Server.  Our network is laid out with an OS/2-based token-ring segment and an NT 4.0(SP3)-based Ethernet segment.  I am trying to get a token-ring card and an Ethernet card running in this machine.  I have the token-ring card set up (so far) as Adapter 1, and the Ethernet card as Adapter 0.  However, only one card will function--that card being the Ethernet card.  Any ideas?

That failing--is there a way to set up a trust relationship between the OS/2 domain and the NT domain?  If so, how is it done?

Have you checked whether there is an IRQ
or I/O address conflict between the cards?

How have you determined that only one card
is working? Are you sure that you have the
required protocols bound to both cards?

As far as I am aware, there is no way to
set up a trust relationship between OS/2
and NT domains. You could try putting one
of the computers in the other's domain as
either a backup domain controller or
additional server, in which case the user
definitions should be taken from the
domain controller - but I have never tried
this, so it may not work.

I'd made sure there was no conflict in the I/O port or IRQ settings, and I checked the protocols.  It seems to work okay now, but of course there's still the problem with the trust relationship.  I think it's something in Microsoft's code: "When encountering OS/2 = barf".

NT must be at sp 6a to work with OS/2
