Can the inn 2.3.2 execute 'newgroups [YY]yymmdd hhmmss ["GMT"|"UTC"] [<distributions>]'?

I have installed and configured completely the inn 2.3.2 (20020305 prerelease) on RedHat Linux 7.2. Use "telnet" command or terminal client such as SecureCRT to connect to the inn 2.3.2, then I try some commands that is introduced in RFC 977.
The "list", "newnews" is working well. But the 'newgroups' command is not work.

Below is my query to check the group with name "test" is existed:
newgroups 01010101 010101 test1
newgroups 01010101 010101 GMT test1

Here is the reply from the inn 2.3.2 (for both of 2 above queries)

501 Bad distribution list: test1

I have tried also the 'newgroups command with the DNews version 5.4g5. It works well.

What is wrong in my query or in the INN 2.3.2?

I'm waiting your reply!
