Add more than one name in the "select users, computers, service accounts, or group" dialog box

In server 2003, when assigning NTFS file permissions or other places where the "select users, computers, service accounts, or group" dialog box would open, I could enter multiple user or group names separated by semi-colons if I needed to add several at once.  Another good example of this would be setting up a new user and adding them to the appropriate groups.  I could just type a semi-colon delimited list of the groups they belonged to, and I was done.

With Server 2008 now, I have to enter then one at a time, click OK, then click Add, then add another...annoying!  Does anyone know how to get that feature back in server 2008?

This should still be the same. I just tested in our R2 environment and it worked fine. Does it work if you enter the username and press check names?

I think I may have figured it out...while I was setting up for a screenshot, I put a space in between the semi-colon and the next user/group name.  That worked!  In server 2003, you can do it without a space, like this: domain admins;everyone

Looks like server 2008 doesn't like that.  I was getting the error message above with no spaces.  2008 like this: domain admins; everyone.

Just a note. In our environment, I can type it either way.

But if the space works for you, that is great!

Yes, I have been unable to do it otherwise.  Very strange, I agree.  I'll keep an eye on it and see if the behavior changes in any way.
