3 comments on “Autodiscover in a multiforest environment

  1. Okay, so I ran the SCP commands in both forests and I can even right click the Outlook icon in the taskbar and do an autodiscover test for accounts in the opposite domain and it works both ways. However, when I run this command in the EMS “Test-OutlookWebServices -Identity” on one of the forests, it kicks back this error even though Outlook can detect and use Autodiscover for that domain:

    The operation couldn’t be performed because ‘security@domainhere.com’ couldn’t be found.
    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Test-OutlookWebServices], ManagementObjectNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ManagementObjectNotFoundException,Microsoft.Excha

    I find it odd that Outlook 2010 can detect that account on “domainhere.com” but when that is run via the EMS it fails.

  2. Hello Johan,

    i was wondering how this would work if your forest currently contains Exchange 2007/2010 and therefore already has an SCP record.
    The idea is to move the current Forest to a user forest/resource forest concept.

    Thanks for providing your ideas on this. You can contact me offline if handy (in dutch).


  3. hello there,

    “Export-AutoDiscoverConfig -DomainController DomainControllerName -TargetForestDomainController TargetForestDomainControllerName -MultipleExchangeDeployments $true”

    can u explain more details on this or put the example from the diagram above?
    when we said target forest, means the domain controller of the Exchange? or the one that having issue with autodiscover?
