Hi Zahari,

my problem is that I've installed Windows Server in German (therefore 
the group objects have a german name and description). You seem to have 
it installed in English, therefore if you don't mind would be really 
nice if you could attach your output (if it doesn't contain confidential 
I will then try to take care of the differences where possible.
