  • Did you tried giving the DN ?

    From the help pages in Technet,

    The Identity parameter specifies the identity of the object that's getting permissions added. You can specify either the distinguished name (DN) of the object or the object's name if it's unique. If the DN or name contains spaces, enclose the name in quotation marks (").
