When you use the Windows 2000 support tool Nltest.exe to try to find the global catalog for a domain by specifying a NetBIOS name instead of the DNS name, Nltest.exe may generate the following error message:
DsGetDcName failed: Status = 1355 0x54b ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN
For example, this may occur if you use the NLTEST /dsgetdc:NetBIOS domain name /gc
command. Nltest.exe may also generate this error message if the wrong domain is referenced in the Nltest.exe command.
You have two or more domains, Example.com and Child.Example.com. If you run the NLTEST /dsgetdc:child.domain.com /gc
command, you receive the error message that is described in this article. This is because the global catalog records only exist or only are registered in the Parent\Root Domain in DNS.
