Distribution Groups in Exchange 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Out of habit I created a new distribution group in Active Directory instead of Exchange. The group has replicated to all the DCs but does not appear in Exchange and if I do a search in Exchange it doesn't find anything? Do I just need to wait over night for this to appear?

    Thanks for your help,

    Lisa

  • Hi,
    Only Universal Groups can be mailenabled in Exchange 2010, so check the Group Scope you gave the new group and change it to Universal if its now "Domain Local" or "Global".
    Then you can mailenable the group in EMS/EMC.

    Example:
    Enable-DistributionGroup "Group Name"
