I am trying to add an entry in Recipient update service for a new child domain and it is failing with the following message:

The specified group type is invalid.
Facility: Win32
ID no c0072141
Exchange System Manager

I have run both domain prep and foresprep.  I also have several other child domains that are working fine and have correct recipient service entries defined.

Hi,

Do you have any GC in your child domain? If not please upgrade one DC as GC. If so then check whether child domain servers are communicating with GC's

dammit...it's always the simplest little thing.  That fixed it.  The domain controller was indeed not a GC.  I checked the box, waited a little while and boom it now works.  Thank you callieman!
