NT4 Windows 2003 Server R2 Trust Failure - Setup Problems

I am in the process of trying to add a trust relationship between a new Server 2003 server and an existing NT4 server.

The domain names are as follows:

NT4 Domain = TABLE
2003 NETBIOS Domain =  UKTABLE
2003 Post NT Domain = UK.TABLE

Each server can ping the other server by ipaddress and the netbios name.
I have followed ms kb article 325874.

The 2003 server is configured correctly but when i try and setup the trust on the NT4 server i get the error "Could not find the domain controller for this domain".

On the NT4 server i have created a Lmhosts file and added the information in respect to the ms kb article 180094.

I have checked that the restrict anonymous value is set to 0 on the Windows 2003 server.

Hi timb551,

are these two domains in the same forest? you only set up trusts between domains and/or forests - not servers

Problem resolved, corruption in the Windows 2003 Server. Rebuilt it and it went straight through.
