Problem delegating management of distribution group in Exchange 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have followed the steps listed in the following article but user is still not able to add or modify a newly created universal distribution group.
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc164350(EXCHG.80).aspx

    Current Enviroment:
    Mixed Exchange 2007 and 2003.  Sever role deployed: 1 CAS, 2 HUB, 2 MB (SCC).
    Exchange 2007 is on SP2.

    Distribution Group was created on Exchange 2007 Mgmt Console, added Add-ADPermission in PowerShell for the user.  When user try to modify the new distribution group, will get error "Changes to distribution list membership cannot be saved. You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object".

    I have verfiy the object in AD and in PowerShell that the user does have the write permission yet still getting error.  What else can I try next?  Please advise.

  • Please try the methods below, and see if the issue can still be reproduced:

    1.      Add-ADPermission -Identity "Distribution Group Name" -User "Name of Manager" -AccessRights GenericAll

    2.      Add-ADPermission -Identity "Distribution Group Name" -User "Name of Manager" -AccessRights "WriteProperty" -ExtendedRights "Add/Remove self as member"

  • Does the account have Exchange rights?
