I have 2 domains setup as 2 virtual machines. Comminucation between them is working including NSLOOKUP and NLTEST /DSGETDC. However, when attempting to create a trust between the 2 I end up getting: "The operation failed. The error is: Access is Denied".

What am I missing?

Thanks!

It seems though when being asked to input the domain name, a FQDN must be used even though the instructions permit NETBIOS. That nailed it for me.
