When establishing a domain between W2K3 and Win Nt4.0 I receive the following error.

The User account already exists, and I'm not able to establish the trust.

Any Ideas?

Also NT4 can only use a non-transitive trust...... unlike 2000 and 2003 that natively use transitive trusts. Setting up the non-transitive trust from the 2003 box?

No event ID at all.

I've succeeded with another NT 4 domain box but not from this one.

There is probably a user or machine account, with the same netbios name as the NT4 domain controller or the NT4 domain - find it and remove it and you'll be sorted

cheers
