Setup Domain Trust for internal networks fail
Posted on 2014-04-09
I have two domains that for the life of me, I cannot set up a trust between the two. I have tried setting up conditional forwarding, stub zone, zone transfer method and nothing works. nslookup does not resolve the second domain nor does the ip address resolve in the New Zone Wizards.
My main domain that will hold all of the resources are Windows 2003 domain controllers and the new domain is using Windows Server 2008r2. Am I having so much trouble because they are different server platforms? Could it be because during dcpromo I selected 2008 for domain compatibility? I didnt think that would matter if I am just creating the trust, but I could see why it would be if thats the case.
