We have two Windows 2008 domains A and B in our environment.Domain A contains all client computers. ThDomain B has no client computer setup for the domain, however there are several shared folders on the domain controller for domain B, and it is the intention of the company to keep domain controller B (and domain B). Both domains are on the same LAN and same IP address space. I need to configure a two way trust relationship between the two domains, but domain B has no DNS and this is making the trust relationship configuration fail. How do I proceed?

Sorry bit confused here...how do you expect Domain B to function if it doesn't have a DNS server? Active Directory can't function without a DNS server, so I'm suprised domain B is even functioning correctly...

Can you not just add the DNS service to the DC in Domain B to fix this?
Or asked another way - what is your goal here?

I was wrong. Found out that DNS service was already configured. I have created the trust succesfully. I created DNS forwarders and revers DNS pointers and pinging (domain controller names) was fantastic after that.
