Server 2008 R2 with Server 2012, AD Trust and DNS Zones creation.

I support a client with two office which are connected with a site to site VPN. Office "A" has a Server 2008 R2 AD Domain, Office "B" has a Server 2012 AD Domain. I am looking for guidance how to create a trust between the domains and setup DNS domain at each site for the other to replicate DNS and be able to resolve by name resources on remote site. I have done some searches and reading but can't seem to find the correct solution, because the server names can non be resolved and are not trusted so can add to AD Domains and Trusts or DNS Zone for corresponding domain.

I created the stub zones, without errors, however when I ping the servers from either end, there is no name resolution, IP ping works fine.

Don't test with ping. Test with nslookup. See what's going on. Logs and Wireshark if need be.

Domain Trust creation worked like a charm, thanks for your help. We can call this one closed.

Sorry, that was a mistake, I meant to select your "Don't test with ping. Test with nslookup. See what's going on. Logs and Wireshark if need be." comment. How can this be fixed?
