I am trying to create a trust between 2 domains.  Here is what I am working with...

DomainA
   Server 2003 R2
   Domain function level = Server2003
   Has forward lookup zone for DomainB which contains A records for DCs in DomainB
   Is able to ping DomainB by hostname
   When I run nltest /dsgetdc:DomainB I get the following error...
          DsGetDcName failed: Status = 1355 0x54b ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN


DomainB
   Server 2008 R2
   Domain function level = Server2003 (second domain controller is running Server 2003)
   Has forward lookup zone for DomainA which contains A records for DCs in DomainA
   Is able to ping DomainA by hostname
   When I run nltest /dsgetdc:DomainA I get the following error...
          DsGetDcName failed: Status = 1355 0x54b ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN


When I try to create the trust from either domain controller in DomainA or DomainB, I get the following error...

"The trust relationship cannot be created because the following error occurred:
 
  Either the domain does not exist, or network or other problems are preventing  
  connection."


I tried configuring forwarders in each domain to the other to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.
