SYMPTOMS

After you install Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 Rollup 5, the following error is returned in Exchange Management Shell when you enable standby continuous replication (SCR) from any source in a child domain.

Standby continuous replication is not supported between computers in different Active Directory domains. The target node is in domain <child domain> which is different from the source domain of <parent domain>.
Enable-StorageGroupCopy -Identity <Source Server>\<Storage Group> -StandbyMachine <Target Server> -Verbose

VERBOSE: Enable-StorageGroupCopy : Searching objects "<Source Server>\<Storage Group>" of type "StorageGroup" under the root "$null".
VERBOSE: Enable-StorageGroupCopy : Previous operation run on domain controller '<DC name>'.
VERBOSE: Enable-StorageGroupCopy : Processing object "<Source Server>\<Storage Group>". Enable-StorageGroupCopy : Standby continuous replication is not supported between computers in different Active Directory domains. The target node is in <Chile domaon>, which is different from the source domain of <parent domain>. At line:1 char:24 + Enable-StorageGroupCopy <<<< -Identity <Source Server>\<Storage Group> -StandbyMachine <Target Server> -Verbose

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the domain of the source server always returns the root domain, which differs from the child domain.
