  • nslook returns unknwon server

    Hi Everyone,

    Good morning to all of you. I m new to this forum and hope will enjoy along with you tech savvy.

    Ok here is the problem i m facing. I am trying to create trust relation between Windows 2000 domain and Windows 2003 domain.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Windows server 2003 Ent
    Netbios name:win2k3
    Domain Controller:win2k3dom.com
    DNS:win2k3
    IP: 192.168.2.10

    Entries in host file

    192.168.2.11 WIN2KDOM
    192.168.2.10 WIN2K3DOM

    Entries in lmhost file

    192.168.2.10 WIN2K3 #PRE #DOM:WIN2K3DOM
    192.168.2.10 "WIN2K3DOM \0x1b" #PRE

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Windows server 2000 Ent.
    Netbios name: win2k
    Domain Controller:win2kdom.com
    DNS:win2k
    IP: 192.168.2.11

    Entries in host file

    192.168.2.10 WIN2K3DOM
    192.168.2.11 WIN2KDOM

    Entries in lmhost file

    192.168.2.11 WIN2K #PRE #DOM:WIN2KDOM
    192.168.2.11 "WIN2KDOM \0x1b" #PRE

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    i am able to ping from both the computer by
    Netbios name
    domain controller
    Ip address

    But when i run "nslookup" i get "default server:unknown" on both the server

    I have tried following command to reset DNS on both the computer

    ipconfig /flushdns
    net stop netlogon
    net stop dnscache
    net start netlogon
    net start dnscache
    ipconfig /registerdns

    above all commands were run successfully.

    Still i am not able to figure out what is going wrong.

    i have installed active directory on both the domain.

    Thanks

    First you need to setup a dns in both domains.
    the dns service is responsible for the srv records which is important for the trust
    second, read this http://www.windowsitpro.com/Article/...522/13522.html

      Re: nslook returns unknown server

      Thanks for the Hint.

      I uninstalled DNS service from both Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 and reinstalled the DNS services and manually configured the Forward lookup and Reverse lookup on both the server.

      Now nslookup returns the default server name on both the server.

      Thanks

        And what about the trust?

          i am unable to establish the trust between windows 2000 and windows 2003.

          Getting the error "The specified domain could not be contacted"..

          Thanks

              On each side create a secondary DNS zone of the AD on the other side. This should take care of the name resolution between the domains.
