I am trying to set up a trust between an NT4 and a Windows 2000 domain across a WAN. However, whenever I try adding the trust it keeps on saying that the domain name could not be contacted. I know there is no name resolution taking place. I have set up DNS and have forwarded it to our local ISP DNS server, but it still will not resolve the name. What could be the problem? We are the Win2000 side.
The Windows NT domain will not respond since it is relying on WINS for name resolution. On the Windows 2000 side, you could tell DNS to look for names in the WINS database that the Windows NT 4.0 server is logging its NetBIOS names -- if you have access to it. If not, you could manually put some records in the DNS or in a local LMHOSTS file.
