Azure AD Connect on Stand-Alone Server (Multi-forest)

I've got a setup with AAD Connect on a stand-alone server.

Set up of DNS forward lookup zones completed as found documented, but getting following error:


An error occurred while auto creating an account in the forest <Forest-1>. Current security context is not associated with an Active Directory domain or forest.


I'm not sure how to resolve this, can't find any related cases or documentation other than:

Did you ever find an answer to this?  I've moved on to manually creating a service account for AD Sync to use, but would be more efficient to just let AD Connect create the account.

No, I also resolved this by creating the account manually and setting the rights manually.
