    am getting the error The new Trust wizard cannot continue because the specified domain cannot be contacted when trying to create a forest trust between separate locations. These servers are separate domains and locations connected via SonicWall site to site VPNs

    I have created the secondary DNS zones and can ping and nslookup without problem.

    My understanding is that I need to add a SRV record:

    DNS Resource Records That Are Required for Secondary Zones

    There are two DNS resource records that must be registered properly on the DNS server that hosts the secondary copy of the trusted domain or forest:Service (SRV) resource record (_ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.)Host (A) resource recordThese records must be in place and registered properly before you establish a domain or forest trust.

    Where exactly do I add this at the root of the forward lookup zone or in the secondary zone?Any insight would be greatful~
