I have been trying to setup a trust between an NT4 domain in our San Fran office, to a Windows 2003 Server we're putting into our Reno office. I have a VPN tunnel created and working, I can ping the servers by IP and NetBios names without a problem. I have followed the instructions for a 2 way trust in the following MS article:
Everything goes as it says it does on the 2003 server, but when I try to do it on the NT4 server I get an error that it "Could not find the domain controller for this domain".
I've added the information for both domains into the LMHOSTS file according to this article:
Made sure all the appropriate spacing was there etc.
I've verified the NetBios name on the 2003 server using a dos command I found here (can't remember it off the top of my head).
I have WINS servers on both machines but cannot add each server to the other WINS server (access is denied they both say).
I'm unsure what to do next. Anyone have any thoughts? Solutions?
