AD Group Synchronization

This is the configuration I run:

Windows 2000 AD not in Native Mode
Project Server 2003, SQL 2000, Sharepoint all running on the same Window2003 Server that doesn not have AD installed on it.

I am trying to get Project to Synch it's groups with groups in my AD.
For example, for the built in Project group called Project Managers, I have created a group in AD call Project Manager (DL). The DL meaning that it is a Domain Local group. I add that name to the "Active Directory Group:" box. When I go to Synch it, Project says that the synch failed. There are 2 events in the Event Viewer for each group, here are the 2 for the Project Manger one:

Component: AD Connector
File: AutoADProcess
Line: -1
Description: <Description><![CDATA[AD PWA sync for : Project Managers (DL) - AD Group Error - cause likely to be group does not exist]]></Description>

and:

Component: AD Connector
File: AutoADProcess
Line: -1
Description: <Description><![CDATA[Accessing AD group Project Managers (DL) failed due to error 13-FetchGroup: Type mismatch]]></Description>

I've tried both DL and Global groups, does the same thing.
I tried changing the Log On account for the Project Server Connector Service from Local System to an Admin account, still does the same thing.

Any ideas?

Group does not exist seems to indicate that they should have the same names; the Type mismatch indicates that they are not the same type, meaning -- text, number, etc. You cannot match a number with a text without some type of conversion.

Hope this food for thought helps.

I have no idea what you are trying to say. I tried several different groups, both Global and Domain local, none work.

First comment refers to this error:
Description: <Description><![CDATA[AD PWA sync for : Project Managers (DL) - AD Group Error - cause likely to be group does not exist]]></Description>
Your group does not have the same name on both sides.

Second comment refers to this error:
Description: <Description><![CDATA[Accessing AD group Project Managers (DL) failed due to error 13-FetchGroup: Type mismatch]]></Description>

Your groups are not the same data type.

Again, just food for thought.
