Symptom



People picker is unable to resolve users in a trusted forest if the only domain controller SharePoint can access is read-only.

Cause



The idea is that all read requests go to the local read-only DC, but if there are write requests (which should be fewer) those get redirected by the local DC to the remote (slower) read-write DC.  So there shouldn’t be a case where you have access to a read-only DC and NO access to a r/w DC.  So being completely unable to access a read/write domain controller would be an invalid configuration.

Resolution



SharePoint will need access to a read/write domain controller in the trusted domain or forest
