Hi,

1 business, two locations, two different domain names for each domain

Upgraded melb domain to Windows 2003 + AD/DHCP/DNS etc
Brisbane domain still running a PDC with NT 4.0 Server, the server does not have DNS installed, and instead points to the melbourne DNS server
* Should be noted; the two locations are also on different subnets, melb = 192.168.30.* and bris = 192.168.40.*

Prior to the melb upgrade, the trust relationship worked fine, post upgrade, I cannot re-establish a trust relationship between the two domains.
I run nslookup and ping tests between the domain controllers and everything comes back perfect, instant response etc.

However, whenever I go to create the trust on my Win23k DC, it cannot find the netbios name of the brisbane PDC and hence I cannot create a trust of any type.

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks.
