Active Directory group synch failed




I'm triyng to synchronize prtg users with Active Directory, I followed the steps on the manual but obtained the following error when requesting to create the group. what could be the cause? Is there a solution? ...It seems to me as prtg is not using the specified string for the domain... the server is a win 2008 R2 and I'm using the latest version of prtg

Are you trying to manually enter the AD-Group? Which version of PRTG are you using?
