    Red face Remote Desktop Services / Allowed Users?

    Hello,

    I have two servers

    2008 RC - Running Active Directory, DNS, DHCP, Domain Controller.
    2008 RC - Running Remote Desktop Services @ Joined to Domain.

    But I want to allow users who are apart of the "Remote Desktop Users" group access to log on via Remote Desktop onto the terminal server, but unfortunatly when I go to add users (Via System -> Remote) it says

    An object named "Remote Desktop Users" cannot be found. Check the selected object types and location for accuacy and ensure that you typed the object name correctly, or remove this object from the selection.

    From this location:
    Acne.local


    Can anyone help me?

    Yes group is selected, if I type the user itself like "jsmith" it finds it no problem, but it cant seem to find groups, not even administrator group, or staff group.

    Its a default group, on the main AD server its in \Bulletin\
    I created a new group and made it a "Security" group and selected "Staff" - And it appears to work? Should I be doing this?

    Yeah because in a sense it is to create security of something, i.e. to connect to remote desktop
