    I'm trying to establish a trust relationship between new Win2k3 domain and NT
    4.0 domain. I have created LMHOSTS files on both servers and can browse by
    IP and NETBIOS name. When trying to create a new trust between domains I'm
    getting "...the specified domain cannot be contacted".

    I've set my forward lookup zones to use WINS, but no luck.

    Anybody ran into this before and if so is there any documentation on it?

  2. You need to configure DNS and/or HOSTS files for name resolution. Windows
    Server 2003 will require DNS and host name resolution.

    Did you add the following?

    NT\Administrators --> 2K3 Domain Admins

    2K3\Administrator --> NT Domain Admins

    Also, are you running any STIGS?
