Location Based Printing using AD Groups

I currently have setup the LBP for our view environment and have been testing with multiple different scenarios.  I can get the printers to map just fine using the * wildcard. I can also get them to map just fine if I define a username.  I am trying to define them using our AD Groups.  I have setup the groups and added my username into the group but I cant get the printers to map using the group name.

I have tried all sorts of syntax with no success. This is what I have tried:

allprinters (this is the ad group name)

\\domain\allprinters

\\domain\ou\ou\allprinters

domain\allprinters

"\\domain\allprinters"

"\\domain\ou\ou\allprinters"

"domain\allprinters"

I know that all these settings are being handed off correctly because if i look at the registry key, after it has been updated, all the information is correct.

Any help on syntax or anywhere would be greatly appreciated.

I finally got it to work using a security group. I ended up making two changes:

I used \\domain\securitygroup (not \\domain.local\secgroup, don't think this part was the part that got it to work)

I then also moved the security group out of its OU and into the default "users" container.

Those two changes and then I was able to let thin print add in the drivers.
