  • Question

  • How can I assign a retention policy to an active directory group of users so I don't have to keep re-running a cmdlet nightly or as users come and go?

  • no you have to do this again.  Or you can create a powershell script and save as .ps1 and schedule a task to do this.

    This does not technically answer my original question.

    Answer to your question is y9ou can't do this natively. MRM isn't based on AD group membership, it's based on mailboxes.  This is by design.

    I see this:

    "Get-DistributionGroupMember DG-Sales | Set-Mailbox -RetentionPolicy RP-Sales"

    Does this re-apply policy RP-Sales dynamically as Members are added/removed from DG-Sales?
