After Exchange 2010 Migration , Distribution List owner unable to make changes to DL’s they own.

Filed under: General — telnet25 @ 5:06 pm

Issue: Distribution List owner unable to make changes to DL’s they own. You have start getting calls from users who are unable to make modification on the Distributions List they owned, and this worked fine prior to migration and yet working on Exchange 2010 Environment.

This is not actually a problems, or per say nothing is broken, as everything working as designed or suppose to be considering Exchange 2010….


  • The following error(s) occurred while saving changes:
  • Set-DistributionGroup
  • Failed
  • Error:
  • You don’t have sufficient permissions. This operation can only be performed by a manager of the group.

here is what you need to fix this

How to Manage Groups that I already own in Exchange 2010?


1. Download “Manage-GroupManagementRole.ps1” from this link.

2. Place the script on the same directory as script folder on your Exchange 2010 server.


4. Run it from same directory per instructed and wait for changes to take affect and try once again.
