Issues: We are unable to always see the remote domain from the SiteA side when using Network Neighborhood. If we can see it we are unable to open it to browse. Currently we cant see the remote domain. If we try to browse to the domain or a remote server by name or IP address we receive an error message station that "You might not have permission to use this network resource. They are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request." We are able to ping and resolve all the servers and the domain correctly. SiteB can browse to SiteA correctly.
Domain Trust (two-way, external, not transitive)
2 domains at different locations
Site to site VPN
Setup was working fine until SiteB swapped out their servers for Server 2008 (they were running 2000 and 2003 previously).
Domain and Forest Level: 2003
SiteA: Single Server 2003 Standard (Domain Controller, DNS, DHCP, WINS)
Server1 - 192.168.1.2
SiteB: 2x Server 2008 Standard Servers
Server2 - 192.168.2.2 (Domain Controller ("primary"), Primary DNS, DHCP)
Server3 - 192.168.2.3 (Domain Controller, Secondary DNS, WINS)
Firewall disabled on all serves, no AV currently on 2008 servers, Computer Browser service enabled on 2008 Servers, the domain trust was recreated from scratch and validated.
SiteB servers reference Server1 as the 3rd DNS Server and the second WINS Server in DHCP and network settings.
Server1 server refrences Server2 as the second DNS Server
Server1 server references Server3 as the second WINS Server
Server3 references Server as its WINS replications partner (Push/Pull) and says active.
Server1 server references Server3 as its WINS replication partner (Push/Pull) and says active.
In DNS Manager at both domains I can open up both forward lookup zones for both domains.
I have created reverse DNS lookup zone as well on both ends.
In all DNS and WINS zones I have setup the security so that all 3 of the servers "trust" each other for transferring, etc.
On Server1 DCDiag and NetDiag come back clean except for a couple warnings in the DNS section that say "Warning the DNS entries for this DC are not registered correctly on DNS server 192.168.2.2. Please wait for 30 minutes for DNS server replication." It says this for both remote servers.
I am not sure where to go from here. Please advise.
