Trust Relationships between Domains

By mtruter ·
Trust Relationships between Domains: We have 2 domains, eg. Domain1 and Domain2. The PDC for Domain1 is in Cape Town and the PDC for Domain2 is in Johannesburg (about 1500km apart). There is a 2-way trust between these 2 domains. We recently had some trouble with the trust and tried to remove and recreate the trust. On Domain2, under trusting domain, when you try to remove the domain1 trust, an error message pops up: The user does not belong to this group. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this trust so that I can recreate it?

The easiest way is to have the other domain to cancel all trust, then cancel yours, then re-establish both one-way trust. You send the request first and get your reply, then have the other send the request.

The trust does not want to cancel - that is the whole problem.

I would agree that the trust relationship should be broken on both ends. A couple of suggestions would be to build a BDC for Domain1 and place it in Domain2 and visa versa.
Add an entry (#PRE #DOM:) into the LMHosts file on the servers to point tothe BDCs.
Then recreate the trusts.
All these proceedures should speed up authentication and connection between the two doms.

ADDITIONAL INFO.: Domain 1 and Domain 2 are managed by 2 different outsource IT companies - I am responsible for Domain 1, problem is on Domain 2 servers. I am trying to assist the other support company in sorting the problem out. Is there not a registry setting or something that we can remove to break the trust?
