Trust between a Windows 3003 Domain and NT4 Domain
Posted on 2004-09-17
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.
