Group jira-users does not exist

I try to configure delegated LDAP authentication on Jira 6.1.5 and OpenLDAP with copy users on first login to jira-users group. But, when I try to login with test users credential I get follow error in jira.log:

Try to manually add the users to jira-users group, see if you will face the same error.
