Active Directory Trusts - On Vmware Machines

Hi all,

I have 2 vmwares, both 2008 R2 Enterprise, both running Active Directory.

First vmware - AD-01
Second vmware - AD-02

I want to create a trust between the two active directories, but I'm not that familiar with this aspect of it, and even less savvy with DNS etc.  I believe I need to set up DNS forwarders.

But first things first, I can't get them to talk to each other!  They won't even ping.  So what I am trying to understand is how I set the 2 servers up.  Do I need to put them in their own private network somehow, or are they ok working on my personal router in the 192.168.0.x ip range?

Any advice how I start this? I'm hoping this thread can get the trusts up and running so making the points high!

Thanks very much in advance,

Kind regards

Darren

I've enabled ICMP on the firewall, but I'm still getting destination host unreachable.

Perhaps a better way of asking this, is how do I set up 2 vmware servers, each with their own dns and AD tree, to create a trust? What needs to be setup so they can talk to each other?  Right now they are simply 2 vmware servers, setup as bridged.

Before you can get to set up Trusts between 2 AD's, you need to figure out your networking problem.  (No network connectivity between the 2 AD's = no trust)

What version of VMWare are you running?  (VMWare Server, or ESXi?)  And how is networking set up for your VMs?
Are both of your AD's on the same, or different subnets?

I think if you gave a few details on how the network topology is laid out, you will get the help you need, which will allow you to move forward.

Hi guys,

Sorry for the long delay.  This has been abandoned now as we are hosting it in a cloud instead.  I just need to confirm before I closed the question.  Will spread the points.
