Not sure if it is related, but...

On Windows domains you are supposed to follow the UGLY model. The
letters of UGLY stand for:

   Users into Global groups
   Global into domain Local groups
   You assign permissions

SSHGROUP should be a local group with members from the domain and global groups.

Of course, scratch this if the machinery is doing something different.
