2 way trust established but only one way

By complexmind ·
We were able to establish a 2-way trust with no problem. When you get into the Server Manager as an Admin of DomainA, you can Select a Domain, enter DomainB and then see the machines in DomainB. But when logged into DomainB, you go into the ServerManager and Select a Domain, enter DomainA and you get the error "The login server could not be found."
We are not using WINS but have matching LMHOSTS files on the servers. We can see the servers in the network neighborhood from both domains and ping the servers by IP and name.

Any thoughts?

Are you using switches? I experianced something lik your problem on my network. I found some information on technet that told me to enable spanning tree on the switch. Unfortunaltey this can't be done on unmanaged switches.

Check the event log for logon or netlogon errors on both servers. doesn't hurt to recreate the trusts and make sure you type the password correctly.
