Can not login to Crowd with AD account, cannot add AD users to local groups

I have setup a new instance of Crowd.   This is the first time I have worked with Crowd but I have setup other atlassian products.  I am also running Jira and Confluence on the same server.


I have defined an AD directory instance.    The proxy account is read-only, but I have enabled the "Manage groups locally" option.  I am able to see AD users but I am unable to add then to local groups.  I have tried editing a local group , clicking on "direct members-> add users" but I can not add any AD users.  If I type in a user id, it doesn't let me add it and it doesn't show any possible patches.

I am also unable to login to crowd as an AD user, although I can login to confluence and jira with no problem.


I did add a confluence app to crowd, and there is an option to validate the creds of an AD user-  and that did work.
