Hi,

I'm running Alfresco 2.0 on Tomcat and have a problem when I want to manage some user groups.

I created 6 different groups and with some of them I have problems when I want to add users to that group or when I want to delete that group.
This is the error I receive when I want to add users to the group or when I want to delete it:

javax.faces.el.EvaluationException: Exception while invoking expression #{GroupsBean.setupGroupAction}
caused by:
org.alfresco.repo.security.authority.UnknownAuthorityException: An authority was not found for GROUP_finance

The strange thing is that I don't receive this error on all the groups.
I tried to make new groups and on some of them I also receive this error while others work like they should.

Has anyone an idea what is causing this error and how I can solve this?

Thanks
