Adding another trust but think's it already exists RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm just setting up anther domain trust (one-way) from US to Spain.  When I try and add the domain name of (Example) contoso.local it says it already exists, however i do have one called contoso.ie.

    Is it seeing the NETBIOS as the same name?

    How can I get round this?

  • For configuring trust, Netbios name should not be similar for two domains, if it is similar you will not be able to configure trust.

    SID & FQDN name of domain has to be different too.

  • Hello,

    you can't create a trust if the NetBios domain name is the same like domain and domain, doesn't matter if the FDQN is different. So please verify the names.

  • If NetBIOS names are the same, you can have a look to this Microsoft article about how to Domain Rename works:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc738208(WS.10).aspx

    Personally, I don't recommand this but you can have a look at it.

    Another solution is to create a new domain with different FQDN and NetBIOS names (Of course domain SID should be different) and use ADMT to migrate your AD objects. Once done, you will be able to create your trust relationship without problems.

  • Hello,

    with the same names domain rename is one option which is not recommended from many people and has requirements like no Exchange 2007 and higher in the domain for example.

    The other option is to use ADMT and migrate one domain to a forest witha different name.

  • To create trust, the NetBIOS name must be unique. In your case, you may consider renaming one of the domains or migrating one of the domains to a new domain.
