Error DSMod Group

I have a user:-

"CN=Jeff Bartles,OU=office-Users,DC=sslonline,DC=co,Dc=uk"

and I want to add it to another group:-

DSMod group "CN=TS Users,OU=Users,DC=sslonline,DC=Co,Dc=uk" -addmbr "CN=Jeff Bartles,OU=office-Users,DC=sslonline,DC=co,Dc=uk"

Yet I get the error
dsmod failed:CN=TS Users,OU=Users,DC=umisonline,DC=Co,Dc=uk:Directory object not found.

However this group does exist inthe Users OU am I neing really thick here - I have pored over this for hours.

> OU=Users

If it's the default Users folder then it's not really an OU. Change it to:

CN=TS Users,CN=Users,DC=sslonline,DC=Co,Dc=uk

Which should work quite nicely :)

Cheers,

Chris
