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?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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
