Migration of Distribution Groups from Exchange 2007 / 2010 to 2013

What are you doing?

After migrating all of your groups to Exchange 2013 with

you try to change the membership either in PS oder EAC.

What happens?

Error

You don’t have sufficient permissions. This operation can only be performed by a manager of the group.

The Reason / The Solution

2007 and 2010 did not required the AD Attribute managedby (owner). Today, for Exchange 2013 this is a requirement. Just set the managedBy Attribute with set-distributiongroup to an Admin Group like “Organization Management”

 

have fun, Alex

  1. I have found you can use Get-DistributionGroup -filter {ManagedBy -eq $Null} if you only want to update groups that do not have owners.
