    I have 2 domains, Domain A has 2 W2003 DC's and Domain B has 1 W2K DC.

    The 2003 servers have just been upgraded and there was a 2 way trust between
    the Domains..

    This 2 way trust was reset up with the New Domain A 2003 server

    When I log onto Domain B client as a Domain B user and I try to acess a
    folder on Domain A I get a "there are currently no logon servers available
    to service the logon request" Error

    When I log on to Domain B as a Domain A user everything works fine.

    When I go onto Domain B's Trust MMC and click verify for Domain A i get the
    following error.."the secure channel (sc) reset on the domain controller to
    failed with the error there are currently no logon servers available to
    service the logon request"

    Help... Any Ideas

  2. You could try to recreate that trust or use nltest to reset it.;EN-US;158148

    More than likely you have a name resolution problem to fix first - either
    netbios or dns. Try to ping each domain controller in domain A from domain B
    by IP address and name, both netbios and fully qualified domain name to see
    what happens. If using wins, have the wins servers in each domain replicate
    with the wins server in the other domain. Make sure the Windows 2000 domain
    controller is configured to have a secondary dns zone for the Windows 2003
    domain and that it is replicating properly. The Windows 2003 domain can
    simply use conditional forwarding to the Windows 2000 domain controller for
    dns name resolution of that domain. If you are not using wins you can try
    using a lmhosts file on the pdc fsmo in each domain to point to the pdc fsmo
    in the other domain. --- Steve;en-us;314108 --- how to
    create lmhosts file. Note that syntax is case sensitive and that the saved
    lmhosts file must not have an extension.

    Thanks for the info Steven... but I can from each domain find the other
    servers and clients on the other domain by pinging the client/server names
    and I get an ip resolution..?

    would this be the issue you are trying to resolve ?

    Now that Steven has led you to rule out name resolution, let's take a look
    at some binding order on a problem machine. Go to Start > Settings >
    double-click on Network Connections > Advanced > Settings > Local Area
    Network connection adapter should be listed on top. Any other connections
    should be listed beneath.

    You had mentioned a problem in between two differnnt
    servers in different domains, Domain A --> W2k3 Servers
    having just upgraded, and Domain B --> W2k Servers is
    remain the same. You had got a problem with Trust
    relationship in between two Domain controllers.

    As per my aspects i thing the Active Directory
    database is not distrubed in the Windows2000 sever
    (Domain B)and it is constant. But, you had told that the
    the Domain A having Windows 2000 servers has been
    upgraded to Windows 2003 servers, so you have to update
    the Active directory database that reflects the same of
    connecting of Trusted domain and Trusting domain is

    May be you have to reconfigure the trust relationship
    in a Domain A to update your Active Directory database
    in Domain A of a new servers. After doing this reboot
    the server and try to reconnect the two domains!!!

    With regards
