I have one DC in my domain that is complaining about once a day that it
can't find a DC in my counterpart's domain. In my domain it's just this one
domain controller that's complaining but I don't see why it is saying that.
I check and I can ping domain 2, and I can target domain 2 when opening any
of the snapins. Is there a way I can crank up the logging to see
specifically what it's complaining about?

If you've already enabled NTDS logging as JPolicelli suggested, you should
be getting some events. If you have, are you seeing any errors?
Also, EventId 5719, depending on your operating system (2000) and service
pack level (?), can be caused by a host of issues, from simply something as
using an incorrect DNS server in IP properties that doesn't host the AD
zone, such as your ISP's DNS address. That can cause numerous other
problems, including RPC errors, authentication failures, etc. A Multihomed
DC (more than one NIC) can cause this as well. With Windows 2000, there was
a known issue that got fixed in SP3.
Take a look at the various comments and see which one applies to your
Also, please post an unedited ipconfig /all from the DC. This will help get
a better understand of how the DC is configured.
