Not able to add groups to Windows AD authentication

I have installed Crystal Server 2008 and am trying to configure Windows AD for authentication. I have added and AD administration name as well as the default domain. The problem I am encountering is that when I try to add any AD group I get the following error: The secWinAD plugin failed to look up the account for the group "DOMAINNAME\GROUP". Please enter non-local groups as DomainName\GroupName and local groups as
ServerName\GroupName.

I have used the "DOMAINNAME\GROUP" format as well as cn=xxxx, dc=xxxxxx, dc=com format with no luck.

Any help you could provide would be appreciated.
