Workgroup Settings not saving??

I'm administering a Apple Server OS X Leopard(not snow leopard). I'm in the Workgroup manager trying to provide an account with access to approved programs such as iMovie, iPhoto and Garageband and etc. It allows me to add all Applications fine but when I go to hit Done or Apply Now I get an error : "Error while saving record "student": Error: -14140" . What is causing this, I really need these students to have access to this software in the near future and from what I have been told even when the students click to run the programs on their iMacs the system tells them that they do not have priviledges or access to use the program. Please advise?

You will have to create an LDAP group on the mac server, then add your ad users or ad groups to the "Mac" group. You can not apply WGM settings directly to AD groups or users.

Is this happening with all users?

Have you tried applying the preference settings to a group and then adding the users to the group?

@nappy_d I tried your suggestion with the group I got the same error message. I'm logged in as a Admin user and not the Root does this matter any?
