Sharepoint Powershell to add a user from a trusted domain to sharepoint

Our sharepoint farm was in Domain A and we wanted to grant rights to a group in Domain B.
It worked fine from the GUI but powershell add-spuser or new-spuser failed – both stating the user ID we were adding was no good.
Specifically this was for Mysites – we had thousands of them so doing it by hand wasn’t an option.

PDF’s not opening in browser from a sharepoint 2010 site?

I had this problem enough times that I wanted to capture the solution.

First of all, credit goes to Craig Lussier on the Technet forms, his post has the full solution and background.

I used the above solution and it worked great.

I also found a script that I did not try. The script is described as being able to change this setting system wide by looping through each document library in each subsite of a given site – it could come in handy. (the script is by the same poster – Craig Lussier – Thanks Craig!

The code below is from the first link above, I’ve copied it here in case MS ever changes the link structure and the original post can’t be found.
