I have a one way trust in place. I am adding a group from the remote domain to a group in my domain. I can see the group when I logon to the remote server but when I try to find the group when adding the user in my domain it does not show the group. I can see other users and groups but just not the one I am looking for. It's defininely not showing. Am I missing something

I think you need a 2 way trust not a 1 way

More likely the group is of the wrong Type. What type of group is it?
Local? Domain? Universal?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Its a global security group. The same group has been created on 3 other domains that also have a one way trust and added to a group on the local ad.

Got it working seems it can take quite some time to show up all groups. I also noted it showed a red arrow and a user with grey hair which was new to me but further info at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q281923
