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

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
