Trying to set an Event Subscription on a Windows Server 2008 R2, I get the following error : “ (The computer group) cannot be translated to a security identifier.”
Looking for a solution, I have found a KB (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980255/en-us) that explains that because the first section of the Source Computers FQDN differs the NETBIOS domain name, they are automatically prefixed with a wrong NETBIOS domain name.
To fix the issue, it is recommended to download and apply a specific hotfix.
After downloading and installing it…
Bingo! Clicking on OK does not generate the error any more!
