The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. Please re-enter the domain name or explicitly specify the domain controller and search base.

Hi All,

We have our MOSS server farm in Domain A.
Now we have created one more domain B.
Our requirement is to pull the user profiles of domain B to A(MOSS server)., Through SSP by adding new domain connections, SharedServices1 > User Profile and Properties > Manage Connections .
But we are getting the folowing error while creting new connection.
The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. Please re-enter the domain name or explicitly specify the domain controller and search base.

Thanks inadvance.

This requires a change in your nameserver.

Go to the nameserver that your sharepoint server is using en create a new a-record testdc.com with the ip-address of that domaincontroller.

You could also create a stub zone.

on both domaincontrollers (the ones running dns-server) configure a stub-zone for the other domain.

start->run dnsmgmt.msc

then click new zone, as type click stub zone
enter the domainname for example testdc.com
then enter the ip-addresses for the master DNS servers.
