Test-FederationTrust couldn’t find object extest
When you run Test-FederationTrust cmdlet; it fails with the error ‘Couldn’t find object “extest_<random number>”. Please make sure that it was spelled correctly or specify a different object’.
The reason for this is because the ‘extest_<random number>’ user object that the system is trying to run the cmdlet with, does not exist in Active Directory. To skip this error message Run the Test-FederationTrust cmdlet as follows:
- Test-FederationTrust -USerIdentity “Existing User Alias”
