Active Directory (Exchange 2010) Distribution Group

Hello

We currently have a mixed domain which includes a Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 R2 server. We are also running Exchange 2010.

Today I logged onto the Windows 2008 R2 DC and launched Active Directory Users & Computers. I created my distribution group, making sure it was set to universal, but it never appeared within the EMC. I did wait at least 20 - 30 minutes.

I tried sending an email to the Distribution Group but got a bounce back. In the end I created my Distribution Group using EMC.

My question: With our above environment, is creating Distribution Groups via AD still possible? Or should I now be using EMC full stop?

If you require any further information then please do ask.

Thanks for all your help.

2008 / 2010 do act a little differently.

I believe you can use the Exchange tools 2008 with Exchange 2008 in AD to do the work... but for me using a mix of 2003 DCs and Exchange 2008 it has been easier to create the group and basic securities in AD, and then create the mailbox for the object in Exchange, or in the stand alone Exchange tools.

starting exchange 2007 the management tools of exchange are separated from the ones of active directory so all exchange tasks,

Group/Contact/mailbox creation/modification/deletion etc... are to be done from the Exchange Management Console/Shell and not from ADUC as it was the case in exchange 2003 and previous versions
