Trust 2008/2003 Domain

I have a 2008 domain and a sep. domain that is running 2003. the two sites are connected by a tunnel.  I want to create a 2 way trust between the domains.  Any  issues to look for?  Schema issues on the 2003?

thanks

No issues encountered here and we have several 2008 <> 2003 trusts.  See the EE post below for a good walkthrough on creating the trust.

Do you have name resolution working between the domains?  That will be important.
You can use conditional forwarders or use secondary zones (not one way to do it), but they do need to be able to resolve.

Mike KlineCommented:
ok then what you can do is
DomainA
Set conditional forwarding for domainb.com and point to those domain B DNS servers
and vice versa
Then you can test name resolution and an nltest
  • Nslookup targetDomainFQDN

  • nslookup
            set type=ns
             targetDomainFQDN
 
  • Nltest /dsgetdc: targetforestrootdomain.local
Any firewalls in the way?
Thanks

ok then hopefully no port blocks there,  these are the ports that need to talk if there was a firewall
