I created a security group on my DC, 'SQL_Read' then added some users. I try to add the group on my SQL server and get error 15401 "User or Group not found'
Tried suggestions here: - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324321/en-gb
Still stuck, can anyone help?

Logged in as sa, Security/Logins/New Login/Windows Authentication.

Searched for object type 'Group' looking in Entire Directory. I typed part of the name, then clicked 'Check Names', 2 groups were listed, I selected the one I have just created. Set the default database.

Click OK gives the error: "Windows NT user or Group not found, check the name again. (error 15401)

Ok. Looks like somewhere in the process you might lost the domain name.
Try to add it manually the DomainName\GroupName instead of searching for it.

Verify in the login screen if "Groups" are checked. I think by default it's only Users and Computers.

I'm not sure about the server restart but also ran out of ideas.
I'll wait for your feedback and see if you got good news.

I still cannot add this new group. I will use an existing security group.
