trying to create new security group in AD and add to public email folder

I created a public folder calender for one of our offices. I now want to make the office manager the owner and add the rest of his people to a security group where they will only be reviewers. The goal is for only the manger to add, edit and delete and everyone else in his office be able to view, while others offices will not even be able to access. I created a security group in AD. added a test user to it. Then opened my OUTLOOK and went down to PUBLIC FOLDERS and found the PUBLIC FOLDER I created then went to a sub folder that is the calender his office will use. I right clicked and went to properties and then PERMISSIONS. I selected ADD and then tried to search for the group I just created. I cannot get it to display. I see other groups that other admins have created, but cannot find mine. There is probably something simple I am missing to get it to display.

Other option is

Try using Exchange System Manager (ESM) instead of Outlook to set the folder permissions. When you're on the Permissions tab for the folder, click Directory Rights, and you'll see your security group.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

well I used ESM and have the group added to the PUBLIC FOLDER and PUBLIC CALENDAR sub folders below it. I made sure all public folders were mail enabled. I still do not see the group added when I go into OUTLOOK and check the permissions. BUT, I just noticed, I think my global catalog server is down...could that be the reason?

Yes that is the reason. Outlook looks via GAL for any address resolution.
