ArcGIS Server 10.2 security to use AD

I am running into a glitch or sequencing problem in configuring ArcGIS Server 10.2 security to use Windows AD.

Here are the steps I've done:
1. Web Adaptor installed and configured
2. arcgis site in IIS has been set to anonymous=disabled, windows=enabled
3. logged into manager on our web adaptor as the primary site admin (arcgis)
4. In Security->Settings, configured for Users and roles in an existing enterprise system
5. Chose Windows Domain
6. entered in a domain account/password (used mine and another time, the global arcgis server account set up in the web adaptor)
7. Chose Web Tier
8. When I clicked Finished, it went back to the login screen

Attempting to log in again, using my account or the server account gave me an Unauthorized User screen. Logging in as the PSA just hangs.

To undo, I went back to IIS and undid step 2 and then logged into one of my arcgis servers and reset the Security Configuration back to default.

Was this the wrong order? I would assume that after step 8, it would allow me to configure the AD group allowed for Admin access. But since I couldn't do that, everyone was locked out. Help?
