VMware...Adding user permissions through the client

I'm running vCenter 2.5 and ESX 3.5.

New domain (Windows 2008)
Current domain (Windows 2003)

A trust was setup between the two domains and everything seems to be working. I haven't migrated any servers over to the new domain but I have migrated a few users. One of the users I migrated needs to be able to use the VI Client and access VM's. In the client, I highlight the server and then go to the permission's tab. I then choose Add A User. From the drop down menu I choose the new domain but when I do that it does not list an users in that domain. This is where I'm stuck.

Thanks

Not sure why it doesn't list the users when I choose the domain but all I had to do was type in the users name in the search field and it came up.

Create a domain local group in the domain where the user account is and make that user a member of that group, then try adding that group to the permissions.
