Hi everyone,

I have 2 domains, company.com and company.net, when i run netdiag on any of the DC's from either domain, i get the same error. It shows a failure when connecting to the OTHER domain for some reason. For example, if i run netdiag on dc1.company.com, i get the following error:

[FATAL] Cannot do NTLM authentic LDAP bind to 'dc1.company.net': invalid credentials
[FATAL] Cannot do negogiate authenticated LDAP bind to 'dc1.company.net': invalid credentials
[WARNING] Failed to query SPN registration on DC 'dc1.company.net'

and then it repeats the same using the other DC's name.

I can understand the invalid credentials part because they have different passwords, but why are they connecting to each other? I do not have a trust or anything setup between the 2 domains. Thanks for any helps
