My Exchange 2013 server's event log is getting flooded with the following errors:

The Exchange server is currently only hosting mailboxes for a single trusted forest.

I also want to add that we have a MS Lync server that hosts Lync accounts the same users in the trusted forest. When trying to add the Lync account
ts, it was recommended I install the Lync resource kit on the server and run the "SIDmap.wsf" script so that the linked mailboxes worked. Could this have caused the problem?

When did these errors start? I'm trying to determine if this is an AD problem/corruption, or if it is a configuration problem.

Tell me more about your environment, such as how many domains, forest info, xForest & xDomain trusts, how many domain controllers, which one holds FSMO roles, etc.

Also, Is there a user account that is *not* getting that error message?
