not possible to add a group to a database role?

For a Sharepoint 2010 database role, I would like to add an AD group as a role member. However, in SSMS I can olny select users (both SQL and AD) and database roles (when selecting object types). Am I missing something? Is there another way to add an AD group to a databaserole?

Have you tried adding the group as a login, then adding to the role?

@JohnM I guess you forgot to give +1. I guess I did that before you and it still reads 1 :(

@Usman Butt: My apologies. I think that I failed to do that. Is there a way that I can go back and add points?

The users referenced is referring to the users of the database, not logins on the server. Add the domain group as a login on the sql server and then map the login to the database & corresponding role. Should work just fine!
