Win2K servr can't see NT dom 1-way trust

By RSurfer ·
To anyone who can answer,
The domain I manage at is a NT4 domain with a Windows 2K file server. We have a one-way trust with domain X in another bldg.

When I try to give access to the X users on sharded folders in the MY domain, I get an error indicating that the domain controller could not be reached/accessed. I then added an LMHOSTS file that preloaded NetBIOS names for the X domain & PDC. Now it asks for a username and password when I try to assign permissions to

I tried using the NETDOM command line utility, but that didn't seem to work either.

The only thing I saw on the Win2K Server CD was the "Windows 2000 Support Tools", which I loaded, but didn't see anything that would allow a Win2K member server to recognize user accts from a trusted domain.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Win2K servr can't see NT dom 1-way trust

It sounds like the Win2K server is NOT a member of your NT domain. Is the Win2K server a Domain Controller of its own Active Directory-enabled domain, or is it a stand-alone server in its own Workgroup?
Win2K works the same as NT does in domain authentication. All authentication requests for domain members are sent to a domain controller (the PDC in your example). If authentication fails, then that is where the problem lies, at the domain controller; the domain members machines don't decide authentication at all.
So, please post the domain membership (if there is any) of the Win2K box, and we can go from there.

Ok, then you might be having authentication problems between your Win2K server and your NT4 PDC.
The best way (IMHO) to fix these kind of problems is to add authentication entries to the LMHOSTS file on the Win2K box. You need to define the PDC andthe NT4 domain name on the Win2K box, pointing both the domain name and PDC machine name to the IP of the PDC.
Please read Technet article Q180094 for the steps:

hope this helps

Turns out the only way it works is with a 2-way trust. Go figure.

Sorry for the confusion.
The Win2K file server is a member of my NT4 domain.
When I try to give users in the trusted domain X access to shared folders on my Win2K file server the user accounts are not available to me.
When I try to give users in the trusted domain X access to shared folders on my WinNT server the user accounts are available to me.
