After going native I notice the distribution groups I am creating is no  longer giving me the ability to select an administrative group.  We went from Exchange 5.5  to Exchange 2003 sp2.  We Have three Administrative groups for this example Bos, Flat, Vir.  An admin informed me that when the distribution groups  is created it always points to the Flat and not Vir.  I am the Admin for Flat.  Need help on this.

Yes I notice that but why if The admin at the Vir administrative Group when he creates a distributive group it dosen't point to his administrative group Vir but instead points to Flat?  How do you go about in changing the administrative group affiliation from Flat to Vir.

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/821904 explains why the option to select the AG is not coming up
By default the groups are associated to the first AG.
