Configure Cross forest Availability Service (Free/Busy,Autodiscover)


1.     First Two Way Transitive Trust is configured between these forests
2.     When target Forest resolves the Source domain for Free/busy it should resolve “” to your source forest client access server
3.     You can use a GALsync to have your Mailboxes synced from source forest as contacts in the Target forest.
4.     You can use ILM, FIM 2010 or you can use 3rd party NetSec Galsync which will get the contacts synced from Source to Target.

Free/Busy information

2.      Run the Below Command on the Source Forest
Add-AvailabilityAddressSpace -ForestName -AccessMethod PerUserFB -UseServiceAccount $true

4.     Run the Below Command on the Target Forest
Get-ClientAccessServer | Add-AdPermission -AccessRights ExtendedRight -ExtendedRights "ms-exch-epi-token-serialization" -User "Exchangehostname\Exchange Servers"
5.     Run this command in the Source forest to export the SCP from the Source forest to the Target forest, So that the Target forest will have the free busy information of the Source forest
6.     Save the Credentials of the Target forest.
Please Type “DomainName\Username” and Password
7.     Now run
