You don’t have to re-create all users and groups created in active directory in the SBS console. 
Here is the fix. 
Open up Active Directory Users and Computers.
In the top menu click “View -> Advanced Features”. Navigate down to the user in question.
Right click “Properties -> Attribute Editor”
Locate “msSBSCreationState” and set it to “Created” without the quotations.
Refresh the SBS console.

If you’re doing a migration or have too many users to do this on, here’s a vbs script that automatically sets this Attribute on all users and groups.

Option Explicit
Dim objOU, objUser, objRootDSE, blnOK, intCount
Dim strContainer, strDNSDomain

Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
strDNSDomain = objRootDSE.Get("DefaultNamingContext")
strContainer = "OU=SBSUsers,OU=Users,OU=MyBusiness,"
strContainer = strContainer & strDNSDomain
intCount = 0
set objOU=GetObject("LDAP://" & strContainer)

For each objUser in objOU
If objUser.class="user" then
on Error resume next
blnOK = (objUser.Get("msSBSCreationState") = "Created")
if err.Number = "-2147463155" then
objUser.Put "msSBSCreationState", "Created"
objUser.Put "msSBSRoleGuid", "3cc90665-6e38-4eb6-9328-0f39c3e6e4c2"
intCount = intCount + 1
end if

on error goto 0
End If
Msgbox "Updated " & intCount & " User Accounts"
