In the Add Users And Groups dialog box in File Manager, the following problem may occur:

You try to add a default group (Everyone for example) from a domain that uses a different language to a set of directory permissions. For example, the other machine has a German installation of Windows NT. You receive an error telling you that the other machine was not found.

To avoid this problem, select the other computer you want to add from the List Names From list box, or enter it in the Add Names field in the other language.

NOTE: This problem occurs only with default or "well-known" groups and occur only when trying to add a well-known group from a domain in a different language than the one where the resource (directory) resides.
