nslookup /dsgetdc Getting DC name failed: Status = 1355 0x54b ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN

I have a 2012 Exchange server S is in domain A trying to get to domain B for linked mailboxes.  S is not a domain controller.

The trust appears to be working fine as I can add users from domain B to groups in domain A on server S

However, the nslookup is failing and so is the authentication when trying to link mailboxes, this is from S

nslookup /dsgetdc:B  results with Getting DC name failed: Status = 1355 0x54b ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN

From  S I can ping B as well as get to any machine as long as I provide the credentials.

I appreciate any help on this!

And you are using the DNS name for B not the NetBios name ?

Try with nltest /dsgetdc:B.Local or whatever the DNS name of B is

We did use the fqdn as well as the domain name both returned the same thing.  However, in testing other items, we ended up unchecking the register this connections address in DNS, saving it and then rechecked it and saved and it seems to work now.

Not sure if this was the actual solution but nltest is working and so is being able to add a linked email to exchange.

Thanks for the help!
