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.

Usually, you get and "add" button to add ntfs permissions for groups/users, right?
