we have setup a forest trust with another domain as well as modify DNS entries on both side.  Our WIN2K servers not able to see resource of the other domain while our WIN2K3 servers can.  

Any idea of why?  Is there a check list I can use to reference?

Thanks in advance.

could it be as simple as a firewall running on your 2k3 box ?

Hi,

Make sure it is Two-way forest trust.

Check these for more details: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc772808(WS.10).aspx

I would read the article posted above ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc772808(WS.10).aspx ).

It probably contains the info you need to help troubleshoot your problem, and then just post back any questions you may have once you've read it...

Oh and

"Trusts across Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 forests

Windows Server 2003 forest trusts cannot be created between a Windows Server 2003 forest and a Windows 2000 forest. You can, however, manually create a trust relationship between any domain in a Windows Server 2003 forest and any domain in a Windows 2000 forest by using one-way or two-way external trusts. External trusts are nontransitive and provide for access to resources in another domain outside the forest that is not already joined by a forest trust."

"Our WIN2K servers not able to see resource of the other domain while our WIN2K3 servers can."  it could be a simple network resolutikon problem on the Windows 2000 server..

For example, see if you can ping the destination resource by name or by IP.. also check to see if you can Start --> Run --> \\servername  and get a list of shares (or prompt for credentials in the remote domain).

doing start->run->\\servername from a win2k server, I am able to see shares on servers of the other domain.  It is just when I try to assign permission of a share folder of our domain for the other domain users, I can do not see the other domain.
Thanks.

Oh... OK, if you don't see the browse list for the users of a trusted domain, then you most likely have a trust issue.  I would imagine then if you try to assign rights of another computer in the domain (XP or Windows 2003), you will see the same problem.

So, I don't think this is an OS issue...its more of a trust setup issue...
