lossing trust connection between 2003 and nt4 domains

I have a trust setup between an nt4.0 domain and a 2003 ad domain.  for some reason we keep lossing the (for lack of a better description) connection between the two domains and the users have to reboot there pc's to get back to the nt domain.
the user that have the problem are on the 2003 domain only.

Any help would be great
Thanks

From the 2003 DC that hosts the PDC emulator you can go into AD Domains and Trusts and verify the trust is in place and working.  Try doing this when users are complaining.  If the trust is in place, then the problem is not with the trust - something else is wrong.
Unfortunately you don't have the ability to do the same on the NT side, but from the NT side if you can map a network drive on the 2003 side where your NT account has permissions (not the "everyone" group), then that will verify the trust.  You should't be prompted to input credentials if the trust is in place and you have rights to the resource.  If you are presented credentials, then the trust is not working.

from the nt server logged in as an administrator i should map to a drive on my 2003 dc? correct?

you select the properties of the trust.  There will be a selection to test the trust.  Or you can do it the hard way which is to ensure that your 2003 account has access to a share on the NT side.  Then access the share from the 2003 side.

You don't have to create a share on the dc.  It can be on any file server within the domain.  

Remember the purpose of the trust is to allow users in one domain to access resources in the other using pass-through authentication.  This means that you won't be asked to authenticate with credentials of a user within the domain that the resource is located in.

Hi  Ok I can't find where to test the trust.  I looked under ad domains and trusts.  all that it shows is my domain.  if i go to properties of my domain there is nothing about testing a trust.   I will assume I am looking int the wrong place.

now what?
