L2TP VPN IKE Gateway issues on Juniper SSG5

To set up an L2TP VPN on a Juniper SSG5. Everything is working per the instructions I'm following, until I hit the stage where I am to create a user group and IKE gateway.

For building the L2TP VPN, I've generated and installed the certs, etc, and I'm at the stage where I create the user group and build the IKE Gateway.

I create a local user group (Objects > Users > Local Groups), leave it empty, and that works fine, but when I go to create the IKE gateway (VPNs > AutoKey Advanced > Gateway), and select "Dialup User Group" as instructed, the group drop-down menu to the right doesn't display the new group I created as an option (there are no options, it only displays "None"), and when I attempt to save the IKE gateway without a group, I get the following error:

Cannot find the dialup user "?"
fail set dial-up gateway
Error in set ike gateway.

Does anyone have any idea why a user group I created (in Objects > Users > Local Groups) would not appear as an option when creating an IKE gateway?

Thank you very much in advance for your assistance.

FYI, this is resolved. It turns out that you have to have at least one user of a proper type (IKE and/or L2TP) added to the group before it can be selected in the section described.

Because it is the solution.
