SBS 2008 Don't see authenticated users as choice

I am setting up a new SBS 2008 and when I create a share and then want to add share permissions, the default of course is Everyone. If I then click add, the list of users and groups does not show Authenticated Users.

I thought this group should be built in?

Help!!

So right click the folder, select Sharing, click Advanced Sharing then permissions, click Add, type authenticated users and click Check Names.  Click OK

you will need to just type authenticated users and then it will appear, you will not be able to select it from the list.

When i'm on the shared tab folder in the Windows SBS console and double click to change permissions, it gives me the add button and then to a list to choose from.. nowhere is the a place to type in authenticated users.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Right Clicking the folder from within the SBS console only offers this:

Browse this folder
Stop sharing this folder
Change folder permisssions (which leads me back to what i mentioned earlier.

Ahh OK, I see where you going, this is by design.  What you need to do if you want to change the Share Permissions is right click on the actual folder in Windows Explorer and follow the steps I posted above.

Thanks...

Isn't it weird that this option wouldn't be an option in the SBS console??
