BE 2.7
AD Membership Provider
MS SQL data store

How do I assign AD groups to BE roles?  e.g. i would like to assign 'My Staff' and 'My Grads' to the BE Editors group, and 'Domain Admins' to the BE Administrators group.

I attempted this with the XMLRoleProvider, but this does not appear to assign roles properly.  Has anyone else attempted this with a multi-blog version of BE (2.0+)? 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>
<roles>
  <role>
 <name>Administrators</name>
    <users>
      <user>Admin</user>
<user>Domain Administrators</user>
</users> </role> <role> <name>Editors</name> <users> <user>My Staff</user> <user>My Grads</user> </users> </role> <role> <name>Anonymous</name> <users /> </role> </roles>
