Problems creating a trust between domains
We have our normal school domain (curriculum.local) running. I've set up a test server and dcpromo'd it as a new domain (technical.loc) in a new forest.
DNS on technical.loc has forward lookup to the DNS server on curriculum.local
I've addeds a forwarder on curriculum.local to forward DNS requests for technical.loc to the new server.
I can ping dev-2k3.technical.loc from the curriculum DC
I can ping ashnt.curriculum.local from the technical DC
I'm trying to configure a trust between the two domains (in order to transfer some GPO's across).
When I create the trust on technical.loc, it runs through fine, leaving me to validate on currculum.loc. Validation then fails as it tells me there is no DC available for technical.loc
If I attempt to create the trust on the curriculum.local machine, it still tells me there is no DC for technical.
nltest from curriculum also tells me there is no DC available.
How is it as I can ping and browse between the two networks, that Curriculum cannot recongnise technical DC?
I'm almost at the point of hair-tearing as I'm sure it's something very simple I'm missing!
Cheers in advance for saving my sanity!
