Moving Objects between untrsuted Domains

So I have 2 domains that are not trusted and at times will need to move users from Domain1 to domain2.  I have been working on a powershell script to facilitate this and allow our service desk to do this work.  The powershell is listed below.  However, I can not seem to get the proper connection to domain2 that it allows me to actually create the new user.

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

$Iemail = Read-host 'Please enter the user email'
$ADuser = (get-aduser -filter {UserPrincipalName -eq $Iemail} -properties *)
move-adobject -identity $ADUser.objectguid -targetpath 'OU=Domain1OU,OU=Domain1Users,DC=domain1,DC=edu'

	Disable-adaccount -identity $ADUser.objectguid

$ADXServerName = 'domain2DC.domain2.edu'
$ADXAdmin = Read-Host 'Enter your privilege account information:'
$ADXUserName = 'domain2\' + $ADXAdmin
$ADXCredential = Get-Credential -Credential $ADXUserName
$ADXDomainEntry = New-Object -TypeName System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry "LDAP://$ADXServerName" ,$($ADXCredential.UserName),$($ADXCredential.GetNetworkCredential().password,"Secure")
$ADXDomainName = $ADXDomainEntry.name
write-host $ADXDomainEntry.Name $ADXDomainEntry.path -foregroundcolor yellow

$ADXDomainEntry.Invoke 'New-ADUser' , $ADUser.sAMAccountname

David,

Thanks for the ideas.   I actually found the commands and things I needed to make this work.

#Requires -RunAsAdministrator
#Requires -Modules ActiveDirectory

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

$Iemail = Read-host 'Please enter the user email '

$ADuser = (get-aduser -filter {UserPrincipalName -eq $Iemail} -properties *)

move-adobject -identity $ADUser.objectguid -targetpath 'OU=Domain1OU,OU=Domain1Users,DC=Domain1,DC=com'
Disable-adaccount -identity $ADUser.objectguid
<#
    Setup for the connection to the remote domain.   Prompt for credentials and establish the connection
#>

$ADXServerName = 'DomainController.domain2.com'
$ADXAdmin = Read-Host 'Enter your privilege account information '
$ADXUserName = 'Domain2\' + $ADXAdmin
$ADXCredential = Get-Credential -Credential $ADXUserName
$PSX = New-PSSession -ComputerName $ADXServerName -Credential $ADXCredential
invoke-command -session $PSX -scriptblock {Import-Module ActiveDirectory}

<#
 create a remote has table of the STSCI specific attributes
#>
invoke-command -session $PSX -scriptblock {$STSCIParams = @{"Schema-Ext1" = $Using:ADUser.'Schema-Ext1'} ;`
    $STSCIParams["Schema-Ext2"] = 0;`
    $STSCIParams["Schema-Ext3"] = $Using:ADUser.'Schema-ext3';`
    $STSCIParams["Schema-Ext4"] = $Using:ADUser.'Schema-Ext4';`
    $STSCIParams["Schema-Ext5"] = $Using:ADUser.'Schema-Ext5';`
    $STSCIParams["Schema-Ext6"] = $Using:ADUser.'Schema-Ext6';`
    $STSCIParams["Schema-ext7"] = $Using:ADUser.'Schema-Ext7' }

Invoke-Command -session $PSX -ScriptBlock {New-aduser -Name $Using:aduser.Name -SamAccountName $using:ADuser.sAMAccountName -path 'OU=Domain2OU,OU=Domain2Users,DC=Domain2,DC=com' `
    -GivenName $using:ADUser.GivenName -description $using:ADUser.Description -DisplayName $using:ADuser.Displayname -city $Using.ADUser.City -Country $Using:ADuser.Country `
    -EmailAddress $Using:ADuser.mail -PostalCode $Using:ADUser.PostalCode -State $Using:ADuser.St -Surname $Using:ADUser.SN `
    -title $Using:ADUser.title -StreetAddress $Using:ADuser.StreetAddress -userprincipalname $Using:ADuser.userprincipalname`
     -OtherAttributes $STSCIParams}

Missed using the PSSession which made working with domains that are not trusted easier.   This solution works if the domains are trusted.
