Trust between a Windows 3003 Domain and NT4 Domain

I have created a Trust between our new 2003 Domain (CMI-PLC.COM) and our old NT4 Domain (Checkmate).

I followed KB 325874 and created a two way trust.  All seemed to be OK. I got all the expected responses.  However when I go back to the 2003 DC to validate the trust I keep getting this message.

"Verification of the Trust between the Domain CMI-PLC.COM and CHECKMATE was unsuccessful because there are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.

To repair a trust to a pre-windows 2000 Domain you must Remove and Re Add the Trust on both sides"

I have done this several times but keep getting the same response.  I can ping the PDC in the NT4 Domain by IP and Name, I have added entries in the LMHosts file and Hosts and I have entered the details of the NT4 Wins Server under the Networking Options on the 2003 DC.

Is it possible that the Trust is working even though the Validation keeps failing?

Can anyone please help.

this may sound odd, but if the trust is working then I wouldn't bother to 'Validate' it.

I am not sure it is working properly.

What is the best way to confirm that it is working?

I have just deleted and recreated the trust again.

When completing the Trust from the NT4 Domain I am informed that the Trust was Created successfully.

From the NT4 PDC I can then access the 2003 domain using Run \\servername\C$ and after being challenged for a username and password I can access the 2003 Domain Controller.

However from the 2003 DC using Run \\servername\C$ trying to access the NT4 domain controller i get the error message "There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request"

If I try to access shares on our NAS Box \\servername\sharename which is running windows 2000 but is in the NT4 domain I am told that I do not have access and am not given the chance to pass a username or password.

If I try to access my own W2K Workstation which is in the NT$ Domain from the 2003 DC using Run \\PCName\C$ I am presented with a logon box and can access my PC after supplying the details.

The 2003 Domain is running in 2003 Native mode.  I was led to believe that this is OK as there are no NT4 Domain Controlers in the new 2003 Domain.

Any help that can be provided would be gratefully appreciated as I do not know what else to try.

OK

I have solved the problem

The 2003 Domain Controller has 2 NIC's installed.  Both were active, when i dissabled one of the NIC's the Trust was validated from the 2003 DC.

Next question how do I get it all to work with both NIC's enabled?

Again any suggestions?
