I'm looking for help with troubleshooting people-picker in multi-domain environment with one-way trusts. We already executed the

stsadm –o setapppassword -password pickapassword and stsadm -o setproperty -url http://server:port -pn peoplepicker-searchadforests commands.

Before these commands were executed people-picker could find users from the local sharepoint domain. After running the commands, people-picker shows "callback error" immediately upon launching search.

enter image description here

Any ideas?

I had this problem recently (SharePoint 2010) and the WSS_WPG group needs to have READ access to the registry key mentioned in the first blog in the comment above. HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\Secure – lwbecker2 Jul 29 '12 at 19:03

When you are configuring yoru people picker, you need to specify ALL forest/domains that you are utilizing.
