Trust Relationship

By ksandy ·
Why am i not able to set trust relationship between Windows NT and Windows 2000 Domains?
When i try to add the Win2K domain as a trusted domain on the Windows NT domain i get this error:
"cannot find domain controller for this domain".

You have to start on the Win2K domain side. First, establish the trust on your Win2K domain to the NT domain through AD Domains and Trusts; then go to the NT domain and establish the trust from that end.

If you are still having problems, please post back with results.

Hope this helps!

That did not work i still get the message from the Winnt domain: "cannot find domain controller for this domain".
However the DNS and DHCP servers are in the Winnt domain and some of the Winnt domain trusts are working fine. But not all.
Does this have anything to do with the problem?

Here's a link to a pretty complete Microsoft knowledgebase article about creating trust relationships between NT and Win2K domains. There are some links to other troubleshooting articles at the bottom of this one if you are still having problems.

(NOTE: be sure to remove any spaces that may creep into the URL or it won't work.)

Hope this helps!

The NT domain's PDC needs to be able to resolve the 2000 domain's PDCE with WINS. If you don't have WINS set up for the two domains, use a LMHOSTS file on the PDC to point it to 2000 PDCE.

One other thing to remember, W2K Domain compatibility mode. If your W2K domain is running in native mode, it will not work with ANY NT 4.0 domains.

Best regards.
