AD authentication problem, issue with SIDs

hi Guys,

environment = XIR2 SP2, running on 2 separate servers, in Test and Live.

Created a new AD group, and added it to Mapped AD Member Groups. An error message was returned (which I didn't capture!) which mentioned "duplicates in folders" ??

New AD group is visible in All Groups etc, but authentication is not working.

Tried it again with another test AD group, with same result.

Any attempt to update the Windows AD tab in CMC, gives following error:

Error updating Windows AD authentication properties: Active Directory Authentication failed to verify one or more of the mapped groups. If the problem persists, please delete and re-map into BusinessObjects Enterprise the following group(s): S-1-5-21-381331107-1882379211-181669542-40529; S-1-5-21-381331107-1882379211-181669542-40530

I've looked at these SIDs with psGetSid and they are not AD groups...

I've tried all this in Test and it works fine, just not in Live!

any thoughts/advice gratefully accepted!
