No exact match was found People Picker error message

No exact match was found People Picker error message

Issue: Assume that you configure a forest trust between two Active Directory forests and that the Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) is not enabled for Net Bios resolution. In this situation, People Picker in a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 site works fine for users in the local forest. However, for users in any domain in the trusted forest, People Picker does not work.

Additionally, People Picker finds the user account and seems to resolve it. However, when user clicks OK to post back to the site, the user receives the following error message:
No exact match was found. Click the items that did not resolve for more options

Cause: This issue occurs because, when you click OK, People Picker makes a NetBIOS call to try to resolve the domain name. Because the customer does not have WINS set up, a Net Bios broadcast occurs. However, the broadcast cannot find the trusted domains because broadcasts are not enabled outside the subnet

Solution: Please check the below link from MS


I hope the above information will help you to resolve the issue, in case of any queries/questions regarding the above mentioned information then please let me know. I would be more than happy to help you as well as resolves your issues, Thank you.
