Windows Server 2003 Domain Trusts
Posted on 2011-10-20
I have setup a VPN between 4 sites successfully using Cisco ASA's . All 4 domain contollers are Windows Server 2003. Once I was able to ping between all 4 sites by IP, I went ahead and configured DNS by adding name servers by IP and transferring zones to each server. I am now able to ping across all 4 sites by name as follows.
I can also ping each domain from the other by FQDN without issue, and I can ping each domain from the other by name.
However, when I go to create a two-way trust between each domain I get the following error:
The New Trust Wizard cannot contine because the specified domain cannot be contacted.
Either the domain does not exist, or network or other problems are preventing connection.
This doesnt make sense at all, as I can ping each domain by FQDN from all servers.
All domain and forest functional levels are Windows Server 2003.
