I am trying to trust our domain with our child company. When the Network Admin at our child company trusted my domain it goes through with no problems. On the other hand when I in turn try to trust him domain it gives me the error "Domain cannot be contacted". Any ideas?

Make Sure that your DNS and AD are set up properly.

Check all 3 event logs.

I hope this helps !

Is this an NT4.0 domain?  If so then your problem is with WINS.  Make sure that WINS replication is working between the two networks.

I thought communications between NT4 and Win2k domain controllers will cease if the domain is switched to Native Mode. Maybe that's your problem?

I'm just learning here....

I added the domain to my LMHOSTS and suddenly it could find the domain and was able to hook up. It trusted to the domain controller running W2k, although the trust process was kinda shaky at best. It finally worked but I wasn't entirely pleased with process, the first guy to trust goes through with no problems while the second guy gets an error but it trusted anyway. At least it works I guess.
