I have been working at this for the past couple of days and something just does not make sense to me. I have been given the responisibility of creating a one way trust between two of our local servers that happen to be on two different domains. For the sake of anonymity I will call the the domains: Domain1 and Domain2 and the servers: ServerA and ServerB.
So here is what I have been attempting to do. My goal is to create a One-way Incoming Trust from ServerA.Domain1 to ServerB.Domain2. Currently, both Domain1 and Domain2 are running Windows Server 2003 OS. However Domain1 is setup as a Windows 2000 native domain while Domain2 is setup as a Windows 2003 domain. When attempting to create the Incoming One-way Trust from ServerA.Domain1 to ServerB.Domain2, I receive the following error:The operation has failed. The error is The server is not operational.
Now I have tried to setup the mirror of this from ServerB.Domain2, which would be an Outgoing One-way Trust from ServerB.Domain2 to ServerA.Domain1, but much like before I receiver the following error; The operation has failed. The error is The server is not operational.
Now here is where I get confused. When I originally started to build the Trust between ServerA.Domain1 and ServerB.Domain2, I misinterperated the difference between and Outgoing and an Incoming Trust. So I originally setup an Outgoing One-way Trust from ServerA.Domain1 to ServerB.Domain2 and it worked. It was after I realized my mistake that I removed the Outgoing Trust and attempted to set it up as an Incomming One-way Trust that now errors out everytime i attempt to create it.
I would really appriciate any help or guidence that you may offer to aid me in figuring this situation out.
Thanks for your time,
