Test-FederationTrust couldn’t find object extest

06 / 01 / 2014 by Exchange Server 2010 1 Yorum / Comment

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”
