Setting up Win 2003 Trusts

Hello,

I am trying to setup a trust between domainA and domainB (both 2003 server).  They are physically in different states but are connected via a VPN tunnel.

when I try to setup the trusts, I get a message that the specified domain cannot be contacted.  I'm sure this is a DNS issue.  I created a new forward lookup zone for the domain, but it really didn't seem to help and I am sure I am doing something incorrectly.

Thanks for the help.

Yes, you need to create a secondary zone of the other domain on your DNS server.

Then on the remote Primary DNS server, specify the IP address of this server for zone transfer.

With this your secondary DNS zone would copy all the records and start resolving the names for other domain.

Same would have to be done on other side. Create a secondary zone of your domain on other side and specify its IP address in zone transfer.

Ok, done.  Now I need to create the trust, but I am not sure what kind of trust I want to build.  

I DO NOT want DomainB to have Administrative rights over DomainA.

Any thoughts and or suggestions?

By default even if you create a two way trust other domain admin will not have admin rights in your domain. Nor will you have admin rights on this domain.

All you both can do is to provide permision to other domain users access to shared resources in your domain.

So, don't worry about him having admin rights on your domain.
