I have a Windows 2003 R2 domain controller and a 2008 SP2 terminal server. How can I give a group MYDOMAIN\MyGroup custom permissions for the TS's C:\example directory? When I try to add a user or group in C:\example's security properties, the location field is not changeable from TermServName and MYDOMAIN\MyGroup is never found.

Are the DNS settings on the 2008 SP2 term server pointing at the IP of the 2003 R2 domain controller? That's what I usually see when the domain is not listed as a location.
