How do I re-establish the trust between two domain controllers in the same domain?

Scenario:  
Two DCs both Win2K3 Standard, both Virtual - VMware ESX 3.5
DC1: Converted from Physical to Virtual
DC2: Converted from ESX 2.5 to ESX 3.5
Windows 2000 Native Domain Functional Level

I was getting an error on DC1:
-------
Event ID: 5513  Souce: NETLOGON

The computer DC1 tried to connect to the server \\DC2 using the trust relationship established by the DOMAIN domain.  However, the computer lost the correct security identifier (SID) when the domain was reconfigured.  Reestablish the trust relationship.

I did some research and found that this may have happened when converting P2V.  So I brought up a d FRESH 2K3 DC, followed the appropriate steps to transfer FSMO roles, and demoted DC1.

Everything seems to be replicating fine with DC2 and the Domain is functioning and authenticating, however, I'm STILL getting the SAME error only with the new DC name.  AND this time not only is is saying it cannot connect to DC2, it says it can't connect to itself:

-------
Event ID: 5513  Souce: NETLOGON

The computer DC1 tried to connect to the server \\DC1 using the trust relationship established by the DOMAIN domain.  However, the computer lost the correct security identifier (SID) when the domain was reconfigured.  Reestablish the trust relationship.
