Cannot assign new group as Primary Group

I just created a new Domain Local group named FTPOnly.  I want to place a domain user account named FredTPuke in FTPOnly and in no other group.  By default, FredTPuke is in the Domain Users group.  I want to promote FTPOnly to FredTPuke's Primary Group, but I can't.  The "Set Primary Group" button is disabled when I select FTPOnly.  (See attached.)  Why?

Then what you can do is to add the user in the guest group, then change the primary group to guests and delete the domain users.
Instead of guests you can create another group just for your need and make the account member of this newly created group.

Hello
There is no need to set the primary group if you don't use Mac in your network. Anyway, all user account must be member of Domain users. So if you use the domain users group to assign right I suggest to find another group and to avoid use of built in groups for that.

Dan,

Thanks for the response.  I'll elaborate on the initial question.  I just installed Windows FTP Server on one of my home network servers (WS2003).  I disabled anonymous logons to prevent abuse of the site.  I want to create a single domain logon (FredTPuke, note the initials) that has permissions to access a single folder.  I suppose I could spend a lot of time hobbling the Domain Users group to accomplish, but that would be the incorrect approach.  So, I want a domain user that has no inherit permissions on the domain.  It seems like this should be an option.
