Thanks, Todd.

Paulo suggested:

"If you create a new group and make this as a member of "Domain Admins" and
put the new group in suoders file, maybe solve.
Just an idea."
- Paulo R. Vieira Jr

So, what I've done is created another group on the server with the same
members as Domain Admins, but called it DomainAdmins;

it works...not the most elegant solution, but it works...

No, a group cannot have spaces in it.  There is no workaround...
