Two domains trust relationship problem.

Greetings experts,

Heres the senario and the way it is set up,

Domain A : Windows server 2003 enterprise
First DC in its own forest.

Domain B : Windows server 2008 enterprise
First DC in its own forest.

Both domains are using an existing working local network. This network has its own DHCP and DNS server running.

I need to make a trust relationship between these two domains but the problem is that both domains cannot nslookup eachother, they can only ping one another IP addresses.

I tried putting in forwarders and adding root hints for both DNS servers so they can see eachother, but it still wont work.

Do I need to have both domains registered in the existing DNS server that is running in the local network first?, and if it is the problem am having now? or can I still do it but am doing something wrong?

Thank you

You have few choices. Each domain need access to their DNS zones. Create in each domain:

1) Conditional forwarders
2) Stub zones

then you will be abke use DNS names in DNS query

If you need assistance, please let me know. I would try to prepare a guide for you :)

Krzysztof

Ok, both domains have their own DNS servers running, both DNS servers are tied to their own active directory.

Yes please, I would really appreciate the help very much.

Thank you iSiek

Hello guys,

Thank you for your help, I am here to say that I haven't got the time to try your solutions yet, but I have a good question before I go on and try yours iSiek,

This question is for you my friend,

When I went to the link that raneeshcr provided up there, which is this one:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Protocols/DNS/Q_22915350.html 

at the end of the post, they recommended using stubs, is it the best choice to what I plan to do, or conditional forwarders?

Thanks again

Difference is that:

conditional forwarders have specified IP manually and you have to care to get them up-to-date
Using stub you have in each domain, information about each DNS servers in other domains. When they will be changed/added your stub zone will be informed and replicate those changes. It cares for that instead of you :]

Stub zones requires DNS replication but conditional forwarders not :)
Both methods are good but I think I would choose in your situation Stub zone and allow zone replication to those DNS server :)
