Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 Connect to VM Across Forest to Forest Trust

I am currently using Systems Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 to manage several HyperV hosts in our network.  We recently formed a two-way transitive forest for forest trust with another forest.   I was successfully able to add a host from the trusted forest, but I an unable to get the screen thumbnails or do a right click and "Connect to Virtual Machine" from the management console. The error message I get is:

"Virtual Machine Manager Lost the connection to the virtual machine because another connection was established to this machine."  

Even when I do a reconnect.

Has anyone out there made this work?

Thanks in advance.

This seems to be a user rights issue.
The user you are using to manage the host using SCVMM, does it have admin rights on the host?
for ex, if you are using forest1\vmmadmin to manage scvmm, does this user have rights on the host from forest2.

The VMM Service account is a member of the local administrators group on trusted forest host.   Everything works in terms of operations such as Cloning, etc.  The only things that don't work are thumbnails, connect to server and shared ISO (probably a delegation issue).

This works if the user in the remote forest is an owner of the VM or a member of a group that owns the VM.
