    Our company has a shared network drive (Z:). We're running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard. The shared drive has about 20 folders in it which have their subfolders & so on and so forth. I'm trying to set up where certain groups of users can access certain information and other groups are denied access. I've set up groups here and put users in the groups: (the groups I've set up is STAFF and ADMIN MGMT)

    Went to the folder that I want to set permissions at (for the moment, TEST FOLDER), right-clicked, went to properties, clicked on the security tab like so:

    Then from there went to "Edit..." like so:

    I can add individual users to this list and do it that way, but we have 85 employees and probably a couple hundred folders/subfolders. What I haven't been able to do is add groups that I've created. The groups "STAFF" & "ADMIN MGMT" aren't populating under "Group or user names:".

    I click "Add" and type in the name of the object I'm looking for, in this case "STAFF" for the appropriate group, like so:

    Then I get this screen that tells me it can't be found:

    Are these groups created on the server's local users and groups or in a domain. You may need to change the 'Location' first, if selecting groups from a domain.

    Peter has it...click the location button and select the domain. It's currently looking at the PC's local users and groups.
