Log in Besadmin web interface

I have blackberry server installed on my exchange server, server is also domain controller with active directory. This is a separate domain controller and domain I will call this domain 2.
Domain 1 which I don't have control of is our DHCP and DNS server. I had domain 1 give us a DNS zone for our exchange server so now our OWA works fine. Problem is I cannot log into the besadmin web interface. It tells me wrong user name\password. I try to log in with active directory account from the domain 2. Blackberry tells me it is a dns issue. Does anyone know what entries I can have domain 1 put in DNS zone so this will work
?

sounds like a trust relationship between dns servers on the different domains or the BES server is a member of the wrong domain.

What does your BBAS-AS log show you when you attempt to sign in?

Try this KB article:  BlackBerry Administration Service page cannot be displayed and the error "'getGCHost could not get global catalog information from DNS" is received in the Logs.

It really just confirms the issue and says, "fix your DNS" in a kinder, gentler way.

JDIS won't trust our seperate domain so most of you were correct on the dns prioblem
