Hello. My question has two parts. First, the company I work for just merged with another company and we have now set up a trust between the two domains, ABC and XYZ, I will call them for illustration. The domains are connected via a T1 with Cisco routers on each end. The trust was set up as external and not transitive. Both domains have a Windows 2003 PDC and a Windows 2000 PDC emulator. I can look at their AD through my Win 2000 server, but when I try with my Win 2003 server, I get an error stating no authority could be contacted for authentication. I am able to validate the trust through the Win 2003 server though. The second part of my question is, how do you get NetBIOS to go across the domains? When I look in My Network Places, only domain ABC (my domain) shows up. The core processor in domain XYZ needs to be able to resolve NetBIOS names in order to function in domain ABC and right now, we have to use the FQDN to get into each other's domain members. Is there a way to get NetBIOS/WINS broadcasts to go between the domains, either through the Cisco routers, or through the DC's? Any help would be appreciated.
