MS Outlook connectivity issues with linked mailboxes in Exchange 2013


I have an Exchange 2013 server that handles two domains: and is local and is remote. There is  a two way transitive forest trust between the two domains.  

Everything works on ( OWA, Autodiscover, Outlook) however domain has an issue with MS Outlook connecivity.  Any linked mailboxes configured from domain cannot be configured with  MS Outlook. If I use the same account on OWA  ( UPN or domain\user) it  works just fine. For some reason, autodiscover or any manual configuration on Outlook fails to connect to Exchange.

 Also, any other local domains configured on the Exchange with the exception on will work just fine with autodiscover.

Can anyone point me on the right direction in how to address this issue?

This workaround worked.

Now I will need to figure out why autodiscover works for everything else but this test2 domain.
