Unable to create trust relationship btwn 2 windows 2000 advanced server
Posted on 2004-08-09
I am trying to get my trust relationship to work btwn my existing domain to a newly created one.
While on my current domain controller when i add the trust relationship of the new domain i get the following error:
The newdomainname cannot be contacted. If this domain is a windows domain, the trust cannot be setup unitl the domain is contacted. Click canecl and try again later. If this is an interoperable non-windows Kerberos realm and you want to set up this side of the trust click ok.
what's wierd is i dont get this msg on the newly created domain. it just says something about cannnot verify or validate at this time. another thing, while on the newdc, i can access my currentdc by typing \\currentdc machine. accessable only one way - kinda.
i'm checking out article #Q312003 and just added WINS but still nothing.
note1: when trying to ping the newdcname, it returns back w/a different ip than on the actual newdc.
note2:testing the newdc on a virtual server running vmware.
Thanks for any other pointers you may have.
