we're installing AD connect to sync two separate forest to the same tenant
AD Connect has been installed on DC on DOM-A.
The two companies are connected via VPN, no firewall restrictions are present.
On the DC on Company A we have added a secondary zone for the internal domain of Company B
when we run the AD connect wizard using the custom setup and we try to add the remote forest we get the following error
[31/03/2021 16:14:16] [INFO ] Verifying if the provided credentials are correct

If we run the get-adforest for the companyB domain controller we are able to retrieve data
Can anyone help us with it ?
