Im trying to setup DDG on exchage 2010. Im using New Dyamic Distribution Group Wizard. under condition section im asked to select condition.

I want the group to be based on Office Attribute which is not listed. There is a State or Province, Department, Company but no office.

Does it have to be done in shell ?

thanks

New-DynamicDistributionGroup -Name Name -OrganizationalUnit ta.local/My Company/IT Users -RecipientFilter {Office -eq 'Head Office'}

A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument 'Company'.
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [New-DynamicDistributionGroup], ParameterBindingException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,New-DynamicDistributionGroup

I tried without spaces aswell,
