LMHosts File

I'm trying to add a trust from NT to 2003 Domain and getting error from the NT Box it cannot find the PDC.
I've updated the LMhost file with the Domain information for the 2000 Domain but it still doesn't want to work!

I've updated with the following:

10.4.1.250   EDMDOM01   #PRE #DOM:EDMUK
10.4.1.250   "EDMUK          \0x1b"   #PRE

EDMDOM01 is the NetBIOS name of the PDC and EDMUK is the NetBIOS name of the 2003 Domain.

After adding the lines to the lmhost file i ran command nbtstat -R but made no difference.

Do you neeed to reboot the server after any chages?

NT4 box would need a reboot the 2003 will pick up changes Dynamically

note you might want to set up conditional forwarding on the 2003 box TO the NT4 domain as well :)

You will have to restart, at least the server service.

Just as a sanity check, are the servers on the same subnet? Do you have a WINS server that is replicating between the two systems? Can you do an nbtstat -a <new_server_IP> and get the server name back from the NT 4 box? I assume you've already checked network connectivity and can ping back and forth.

Does the 2003 server have the firewall enabled?

Thanks to all for the help - looks like i was barking up the wrong tree. Networking between 2 PDC's was OK, but needed a reg entry changed (RestrictNullSessAccess).
