Renaming a SEC dist group gets error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Universal Sec group that needs to be renamed and a new primary smtp addess applied. However we get an error when tyring to modify it:

    Members can't add themselves to security groups. Please set the group to Closed or Owner Approval for requests to join.

    So then we try to modify the group so that its Closed but the command to do that generates the same error: set-DistributionGroup "ALIAS" -MemberDepartRestriction closed

    I'm thinking of converting to a Dist group from a  SEC group, make the rename changes, then convert it back, but I am unawawawre if that will affect any permissions to resources this group has.
