Adding a user from a different domain

  Asked By: Jaron    Date: Apr 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3998

We're trying to add a user who logins using a different domain.
I get an error:

The user does not exist or is not unique.

A trust has been setup, so I'm not sure why I can't add the user to
the site. Ideas?

Do you have the same user  name present in both domains?

Sounds like a distinct possibility, I'll have to check in a couple of
weeks time when I get back to the office.

Why would that be an issue for sharepoint; doesn't it use SID's anyway?
(e.g. EUROPE\123 and AUSTRALIA\123 would have different SID's)
