Lync 2010: Cannot Add Root Domain Users

Posted on 2012-09-06

I am in the process of adding users located in our parent domain to our Lync Server but I am receiving an error:
lync error
At the moment we have our Lync 2010 server running in a child domain. I am able to add members of the child domain, but no members of the parent domain.
I am also getting an error in the event viewer w/ eventID 30011

All indications point to that a domainprep and forestprep have been ran in the parent domain.

Are these errors due to the Lync server sitting in the child domain and not the parent domain? Does the Lync server need to be located in the parent domain to be able to add its users and also users of the child domain?

    After further investigation, found that Enable-CsAdDomain was not ran on Root Domain
    Once ran, I was able to add users

    Shouldn't all users have the same email signature?

    You wouldn't let your users design their own business cards, would you? So, why do you let them design their own email signatures? Think of the damage they could be doing to your brand reputation! Choose the easy way to manage set up and add email signatures for all users.
