JSI Tip 4402. Error when resetting or verifying trust relationships between Windows 2000 domains?

After upgrading your domains to Windows 2000, using NETDOM to verify or reset the trust relationships generates the following error:

The system cannot find the file specified.

The problem occurs because the trust relationship continues to be Windows NT 4.0 style trusts.

NOTE: This does NOT cause any problems with authentication.

To workaround this feature, use Active Directory Domains and Trusts to verify and reset trusts when a domain has been upgraded from Windows NT 4.0.
