    PS C:\> STSADM.exe -o setproperty -pn peoplepicker-searchadforests -pv "forest:*YOURDOMAIN*,*USERPICKACCOUNT*,*USERPICKPASSWORD*" -url http://*YOURWEBAPPLICATION*

    If the error persists, run the below commands:

    Note: This is SharePoint configuration and should be approached with caution. For more information, see Configure People Picker in SharePoint 2013 in Microsoft TechNet.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    This is caused by a corruption in the SharePoint People Picker settings, possible due to the addition of WFE server or other change to the Farm config.
