creating a forest trust between 2 domains on 2 different subnets
Posted on 2007-07-19
Hi, i am in the process of creating a forest trust between 2 domains on 2 different subnets,ie. 192.168.17.0/24 and 192.168.9.0, I have 2vwindows 2003 server DC on different subnets pointing to themselves to relsolve DNS
I can ping between them and relsolve a dns name via nslookup
when i try creating a forest trust between the 2 domains i get an error message saying that i can;t create a forest trust, i can create a realm trust but that is not what i need? Not sure what i am missing??
there is a vlan between the 2 networks now and all ports should be open on the pix firewall to allow communication between networks
i just can't get one server to recognize the other when i do a search for a computer on the servers, the server will find a computer via the ip address that i enter, but i get an unknown folder? when i try to authenticate with an admin password it doesn't work and i assume this is because i am unable to get this forest trust set up, i think if i can set up the trust it will take care of these issues? The forest functional level is set to server 2003!
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
