Debugging Domain Trust Issues

Trust written on a stone.

Recently we had to redo our development network, so that we can work on our account provisioning to include exchange support. Ultimately we had to rebuild our Active Directory server. In order to migrate our existing accounts from our production environment. To do this, you need to establish a Trust between our two domains, and use the Active Directory Migration Tool.  The process of rebuilding our Active Directory server disrupted our ability to establish a Trust between our two domains.

Many of our network setting got wiped out when we rebuilt our development Active Directory server, so when trying to establish the trust I was getting this error message:

The secure channel (SC) reset on domain controller \\.mica.edu of domain mica.edu to domain micadev.edu failed with error: There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.

The incoming trust was successfully validated.

Seeing as the migration was not firing correctly, it was pretty apparent that the trust was not successfully validated.

Most of my searches on the internet said the issue was related to DNS. What I found however, was that Trusts need WINS to be working, and our WINS was not set up correctly. Once I added our WINS server settings onto the machine, the Trust went through with out issue.

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do
    you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?
    A couple of my blog audience have complained about my blog not
    operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?
