Hi Jennifer,

Some input from my side, if you use \ as seperator then you have to escape
the \ since this is the normal shell escape character

If you would enter "groups ntdomain\jfountain" then this would be
interpreted as : "groups ntdomainjfountain" by the shell.

You should enter " groups ntdomain\\jfountain", this would be interpreted
as : "groups ntdomain\jfountain" by the shell.

Kind regards,
Tim Verhoeven
