No Domain Controller available -strange problem
Posted on 2002-03-07
I have two NT 4.0 domains - DOM1 and DOM2 adn 2 NT SErver PDC's, each on different networks. DOM1 is 139.257.2.x and DOM2 is 139.257.6.x.
They both trust each other. Everything has been working fine, a few days ago I noticed all these messages in event log on DOM1- it says: No Windows NT Domain Controller is available for Domain DOM2. (This event is expected and can be ignored when booting with the NT NEt hardware profile) The following error occured, there are currently no logon servers to service the logon. Why am I getting this error on DOM1 about another domain. They are both PDC's and PDC's don't log into each other.
ANother strange thing is I deleted the trust relationships on DOM1 and DOM2 for each other. Now I try adding the trusts back for each PDC. I am able to add trusting domain fine on both, but when I enter trusted domain on each in user manager is won't let me add the other domain as trusted and gives me an error - Unknown password.
ANy ideas what is wrong. Could trust connection be bad?
