Set up a trust between two 2003 domains
Posted on 2006-07-18
I am trying to set up a trust between two Sever 2003 domains. I have full control over both, and each server is sitting here with me. I have DNS up and running on both, (maybe improperly configured), and I can ping each from the other by name and IP. Here's my problem: When setting up the trust, I get to the point where you are prompted to enter the domain name. I enter, a couple seconds go bu, and the next screen comes up saying "The name you specified is not a valid Windows domain name". What gives?
Some helpful info for answers:
1.) I can reload one, or both machines, if necessary.
2.) I can uninstall AD, or DNS, or do whatever else might be needed to get this working.
3.) Step-by-step instructions would be nice. I have two MS guides that I have followed, but keep getting stuck at the same point. I also look over this site before posting, but didn't find anything that helped me.
