Dear All,

I have parent and child domain model in my environment, I prepare the AD in parent and then I prepare it in child, now I’m trying to find (csadministrator and other RTC groups) in child domain but I didn’t!? all groups appear in parent domain, Lync will be installed and use in my child domain.

Is there any steps I have to do it?

Thanks

I think you will have to enable Lync setup for the child domain as well so it would create all the cs users and groups on it.

You can do so by applying the following cmdlet on lync management shell
Enable-CsAdDomain -Domain domain1.contoso.net

you can run this command to prepare the child domain however it is better to specify the FQDN of a Domain controller for the ChildDomain
 
Enable-CSAdDomain -Domain sub.contoso.com -DomainController <ChildDomainControllerFQDN> -Verbose -Confirm:$false -Report "C:\LyncLogs\Enable-CSAdDomain_sub.contoso.com[date_time].html"

However if your Lync deployment is only in the root Domain you are not required to prepare the child Domain

you can also simply insert the Lync media on the Child Domain controller and run the AD preparation wizard from there

you may have to manually add the RTCComponentUniversalServices group from the parent domain to the Windows Authorization Access group in the child domain.

Also you can refer below link

I know that you run the preparation successfully.
If you want to create Lync group on child, you need when you prepare AD and forest write child domain.
Enable-CsAdForest [-GroupDomain <FQDN of the domain in which to create the universal groups>]

Hi,
This behaviour is by design.
I have exact experience with Exchange 2010  


Lync forest prep will create RBAC group  (csadministrator and other RTC groups)
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg425791.aspx 

domain prep will only assign the rights to RBAC group created on forest prep
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg398742.aspx



YOu can add your domain user to to the forest level group  (child.example.com\Admin1 to example.com\csadministrator)

Issues will happen particularly for multiple domain, in this case, you need to go down the path to create custom RBAC for every child domain with scoping.
