Can't Add NTFS Permissions in Server 2008 R2

I just migrated to a Windows Server 2008 R2 File Server using the File Server Migration Toolkit.  For some reason, when I want to add NTFS permissions on a folder for a user/group, there is no "Add" button on the Properties -> Security tab.  The local admins group is the owner on every folders, with the Domain Admins group being part of that group.  How do I get the button to come back?

Not sure if it matters but I changed the server name after the data was migrated.

Even on the root of the drives themselves, there is no "add" button.
