Cross Domain Share Access

We have a local domain on site called test1. When trying to access a data share on a server at another location on the test1 domain this is accessible using the test1 domain workstation. However, when we use the test2 domain workstation connecting up to a test1 domain servers data share we receive the error of 'There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request'.

Test1 domain is the main domain we are using however we are in the process of migration to test2 domain which is in another location altogether.

Also, the strange thing is that test2 domain workstation connecting up to a test1 domain server works fine on a windows 2008 platform. The problem server seems to be a Windows 2003 issue and both these servers sit on the same location on the same LAN.

working now. Some of the DC's on another IP range couldn't access the DC's in the remote site therefore failing. As soon as we allowed it through it authenticated fine and the shares are accessible.
