Cross Forest Active Directory Enterprise Resource Pool Synchronization RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all!

    We have two domains (the domainA - 2003 and the domainB - 2008) with two-way trust.

    In domainA there is a local group with users from the domainB.

    We have Sharepoint Server 2010 + Project Server 2010 with synchronization "Active Directory Enterprise Resource Pool Synchronization" with local group of the domainA. Synchronization worked until SP1, after installing SP1 the error appear:
    Some user data was not updated because synchronization of the Enterprise Resource Pool partially failed on 12/9/2011 at 8:41 AM. To identify where the errors occurred, see the Windows event log on the server."

    event 7221- "Active Directory Synchronization cannot resolve reference to a foreign security principal in a remote forest or external domain. This could be because the object does not exist, the user does not have permission or because of a communication problem between the project server application server and Active Directory. Distinguished Name : LDAP://xxx.domainA.ru/CN=S-1-5-21-1003149109-1081597430-2277648077-1107,CN=ForeignSecurityPrincipals,DC=xxx,DC=domainA,DC=ru"


    I've deployed a new test server with the test domain and two-way trust relationships and new test server with Sharepoint 2010 + Project 2010.

    The synchronization work fine.

    I has installed SP1 for Project 2010, the synchronization doesn't work.

    I have tried to install 2011 August CU and 2011 October CU but synchronization doesn't work.

    Are there any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

  • This issue appear after SP1 and if trust type is "external trust", to resolve need change trust to "forest trust".
