I´m trying to learn a bit about forest trust.

Got 2 forest( one domain in forest a and two domains in seperate trees in forest b), and made a foresttrust 2-way. validated the trusts and all seems ok.
When I try to add a user from the trusted forest (b)to a ad group in forrest a I can not see the other forest in the Location window, only :Entire directory, and the local domain.

But if I create a folder, and set premissions i can see the trusted forest and select a user fom it.

Did I miss something? am I not suposed to be able to add external users from trusted forest in ad groups?
