Giving a domain group RW access to a DB?

Hi,

I've created a global security group called 'SQL_OVS' in my Windows 2003 domain and I've added some users to that group.

I now want to give that group read-write permissions on an SQL 2005 database.

I've connected to that SQL Server 2005 (using the SQL Server 2008 Management Studio) and added the group as a login user under 'security'. Its database role membership is 'public', 'db_datareader' and 'db_datawriter'.

Yet, when I try to create an ODBC connection on a client PC with a user from the SQL_OVS group I cannot connect!?

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you very much

Have you already had the client PC log out and log back in since the group was added?
