We have had a trust between our managed domain and another companies domain.

The trust is currently down with a message saying that the DOMAIN.UK cannot be found.

Is there anyway of finding out how the DC is trying to resolve logons to DOMAIN.UK (ie how its trying to find the DC)?

thanks

Are you able to ping the other DC?  None of the servers are SBS 2003?   Is there an error in the event log with more information?

The Domain Controllers need to be able to resolve the other domain name for the trust to work. Have you got static entries in hosts /lmhosts? If not you may have to configure DNS to be able to resolve these domains.
