W2K and NT 4.0 Trust Relationship

By -J- ·
We are trying to set up a 1 way trust relationship between domains. The NT 4.0 being the Trusted and the W2K being the Trusting. When trying to establish the trust on the W2K box we get the following error:
The <DOMAIN> cannot be contacted. If thisdomain is a Windows domain, the trust cannot be set up until the domain is contacted. Click Cancel and try again later. If this is an interoperable non-Windows Kerberos realm and you want to set up this side of the trust, click OK.

Any help wouldbe appreciated.

W2K and NT 4.0 Trust Relationship

Hello,
I Try to answer your Question, You know that w2k promise that they can work with NT4, but in fact that not so simple, Maybe first you must check at W2K Server, is it Native Mode or Mixed Mode? because if you have Native Mode, you can't make trust relationship with NT4 domain. For Ref. you can read Minasi book
I hope this can help you

Hi J,
Yes you should check whether the w2k domain is in native or mixed. If mix, you can only set one-way trust relationship that is: NT4 domain trusts (trusting) w2k domain. No need to setup in w2k, w2k automatically trust NT4 when you apply the relationship in NT4.
