Creating a Distribution Group - Fails to Create Public Folder

I am trying to create a distribution group using SMC and it creates the group and starts to create the public folder (refreshed the ESM Public Folders), but it is failing to actually create it with any Security Permissions and gives me an error that says "blah blah, Failed to Create Public Folder, blah blah"

Any ideas what could be causing this?  System permissions messed up for Public Folders in the ESM?

If I manually create a Public Folder when I go to the Properties | Permissions ... the Directory Rights... button is GRAYED OUT and cannot be accessed...

Prior to adding this group I have made successful Distribution Groups.

Exact error message: "The wizard could not successfully configure this group.  The following could not be completed: - The Exchange public folder could not be created.  Do you want to keep this group?" -Yes or No
