    Unanswered: Granting Authorities to a Domain Account

    I've read about UDB security until my eyes are crossed and I'm still struggling to get this to work.. hoping someone can help me..

    running DB2 V9.1 on Windows Server.

    The security was originally built by creating lcoal users on the Server and then granting individual privileges to Databases and Tables.

    I have been able to create a local test user and local test group and then grant privilege to the DB and authorities to the tables that way .

    Shouldn't I be able to do the same with a Domain account??????

    I created a test Domain account with no special access to the Server that is running DB2. I then created a local test Group on the Server and added the Test Domain account to the group. I gave this test group privileges (Grant Select) to the Database and it's tables but can't get it to work!!! what am I missing??
