could not find domain controller for this domain


I was trying to establish a trustrelationship between a windows NT domain and a Windows server 2003 AD, but got the error "could not find domain controller for this domain".

I changed the value of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\LSA\RestrictAnonymous to 0 and also created entries of LMHOSTS on windows nt server. They look like "UCMO.LIB \0x1b" #PRE jckl-dc #PRE #DOM:UCMO.LIB

"UCMO.LIB" is the domain name. "jckl-dc" is the computer name.

Does anyone know how to fix it?

But your posts are too light on detail. The KB article does work, but I can't see why from the details you provide. Maybe you can call this one in.

Thanks for the reply. I figured it out. I should use NetBIOS name which is UCMOLIB, not domain, when adding it to the trustrelationship.
