Allow users from trusted forest to create / Edit Exchange 2010 mailboxes in another forest

Hi All

We have a single Windows 2008 R2 Forest / Domain that has our own Exchange 2010 org(forest A)
We have recently taken over another company that also has a Windows 2008 R2 Forest / single Domain with an Exchange 2010 org (Forest B)

We are trying to allow our 1st / 2nd line support staff who have their accounts in Forest A to be able to create and amend mailboxes in Forest B.

We have read that you need to use a powershell script to create a linked role group

New-RoleGroup <role group name> -LinkedForeignGroup <name of foreign USG> -LinkedDomainController <FQDN of foreign Active Directory domain controller> -LinkedCredential $ForeignCredential -Roles <role1, role2, role3


After running this script to add our Universal group from Forest A it says successful however when we look at the role group it does not show our UG as a member and the permissions do not work for our support staff.

When they try to run the EMC and connect to the Exchange org in Forest B they get an error that implies it is still trying to look at our own internal Exchange org

Anyone got any ideas as to how we can rectify
