Trust relationship cannot be created because the following error occurred


I was trying to build a Forest wide Trust between 2003 R2 and 2008 R2 environment and I covered  the required prerequisites as below;

* The forest functional level should be  set to minimum  Windows 2003 Server(On the Windows 2003 Domain Controller)

* The conditional forwarding  was set up on 2003  and 2008 to resolve target domain names

But still I was getting  the error on the title along with the below error ;

“The operation failed: The error is: This operation cannot be performed on the current domain.”



In order to solve this please make sure below identifiers are not same in your both target and source domains


– NetBIOS  name

– DNS name

In my case it was the NetBIOS name and I had to rename the domain name.
