Active directory and Domains

Hi Gurus, Please help me for the following problem.
I have Three windows 2003 servers with enterprise edition. One is the parent domain and other two are child domains. They have trust relationship with each others. Also global catlogs are installed on all domain servers. I am not able to see other domains from one of the child domain. Why? Thanks in advanced.

Not sure I completely understand what you are asking.  Are you saying that you have 3 servers, and each server is set up as its own domain/domain controller?  If so, are these 3 domains in the same forest?  How are you trying to view the other domains?

Hi ocon827679,
Each server has its own domain controller.
Say parrent domain is abc.com
First Child domain is xyz1.abc.com and second child domain is xyz2.abc.com
I can view xyz1 and xyz2 from abc and abc and xyz2 from xyz1 but not able to view abc and xyz1 from xyz2. repadmin /showrep shows all replication from all domains.

In what way are you not able to "see/view other domains"?  Please be more specific about what you are trying to accomplish.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

 
ocon827679Commented:
instead of repadmin /showrep use "repadmin /showrepl /all"  This will give you inbound and outbound replication as well as connection information.

Do you have the support tools loaded?  Use adsiedit.msc on xyz2 to see if you can see the two other domain containers in the global catalog.  If you can then the domains are talking properly.  If not, then you do have a replication issue and its probably DNS that screwing you up.

Funding and DNS are the scourge of IT admins!

Just to pick a nit - /showrepl is a deprecated command in 2003, better to use repadmin /replsum.

Then try showreps.  I use to use the depreciated switch all of he time so I often get them confused. Simple mind! :-)
