Recently did an Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 migration
Having issues creating/modifying mail contacts in Exchange 2010.  Contacts are listed in Exchange 2010 but need to be modified in Exchange 2003. When adding new mail contacts within Exchange 2010 they get added to Exchange 2003.Also having issues modifying Distro groups.    Creating disto groups within Exchange 2010 get added to Exchange 2010 and can be edited within Exchange 2010, however the old distro groups need to be edited in exchange 2003.

In Exchange 2010 you can modified the properties via Exchange Management Console and PowerShell.In Exchnage 2003, you have to use Active Directory User and Computers.

I can see the contacts and view the properties of the mail contacts, however i am unable to edit member of properties for the mail contacts and members properties for the distro groups within the Exchange Management Console.  The only way to edit is within the Exchange 2003 system manager.  I am looking to decommision the exhcange 2003 box but need to make sure everything is functioning properly in the exchange 2010 box first

Are you using admin account to modify mailcontact and distro groups? It this happen only to existing mailcontact/distro group? It is happen to new mailcontact/distro group which you've created using Exchange 2010 Management console?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I am using the administrator account.  I can create mail contacts in EX2010 but cannot modify the member of after creating within EX2010.  I need to go to EX2003 to modify.  Also i tried to create a new mailbox in EX2010 with the EX2003 off and it gave an error when trying to find the mail store.  With the EX2003 on it creates mailboxes fine in EX2010.

I ran the OAB move and the Address List Conversion.  I got to following error when running the Set-AddressList cmd in the exchange shell.  All other Address List conversion cmds went through clean.  OAB is now listing as exchange 2010 server.

Still having same issues with mail contacts and distro groups however.

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-AddressList "Public  Folders" -RecipientFilter {RecipientType -eq "PublicFolder"}
Invoke-Command : Cannot bind parameter 'RecipientFilter' to the target. Exception setting "RecipientFilter": """ i
