DCGIAD DNS Test Fail for all Child Domains except of one!

hey Guys,

Sorry, I am no native speaker for english!

I have a very misterious problem!

I have a forest domain, Parent and 8 Child Domains.

We had some DNS issues caused by missconfigured VPN Tunnel between sites, that was solved in one day, DNS recoverd, Suddenly, the trust broke on 3.1.2023, no one was working on that day.

Trust was broken between the parent and two childs, we did reset the Trust password on this 3 sites and it recoverded!

But we have still Issues withe authentication between the childdomains.

For exampel: we have on site "rochester" a webserver, Users vom another child domain have to login with their credetials from the local domain and it doesnt work, the popup appears again and again, the logfiles says, wrong passwort. Its an appache webserver!

I have a seconde server also in "rochester" site, IIS Webserver, same behaviour.

So i did an DCDiag /Test:DNS /e /v on the root server, and DNS Test fails with this error :

But, DNS is working fine, All ping, all nslookup, all replication to sysvolume, repadmin replsummary also no errors,

I open powershell as Enterprise Admin and run as Admin!

I also checked RDP on Servers from one child domain to the other, it also works!

All Firewalls were checked if they block smth, but als ist open any/any !

We also cleaned up old DNS Server entrys .

Only one Child Domain success the DNS Test, this domain is part of the same site as the rootserver.

Also Authetictaion is passing from child domain to root domain, but not in the opposite direction!

This makes no sense! hope someone has a brilliant Idea!

    What OS are the servers running? Were the problem servers rebooted? Do they all have the same Windows Updates installed?
