Windows sbs 2003 to SBS 2008 migration, users are not showing in server console

I was extremely thorough on this migration, as it was the first one I have done.  Everything went perfectly, except seeing users in the SBS 2008 Server Console.  

I read a few after the fact blogs about adding roles during the migration, but for the life of me, I don't ever remember seeing this as an option.  

Is there a good way to get them to show in my server console (as I need to add VPN access, which I can't do until I allow it via the server console) without recreating them?  I think my google skills are lacking when I am trying to phrase the search.
Thanks in advance!
