Trouble Mail Enabling a Disabled Distribution Group - Exchange 2010

I was unable to edit recipients of a distribution group, so I disabled it.  Now it no longer appears under Recipient Configuration/Distribution Group.  I can find it under Active Directory and make changes, however, I am unable to see how to mail enable it, other than deleting and re-creating.

Please help!

When you disabled it, it removed all Exchange attributes and left the AD account intact.

Mail enable it again by creating a new DG, but selecting existing group.

Follow steps in the link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997448.aspx

I was on that link.  I see only six groups, but none are the distribution group I have disabled.  I see only Enterprise Admins, Exchange Servers, Exchange Trusted Subsystem, Exchange Windows Permissions, ExchangeLegacyInterop, and Schema Admins.

Make sure that the group in AD is universal. If not, make it universal. Right click -> properties (in AD).

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

It says "The following Active Directory Domain Services error occurred: A global group cannot have a universal group as a member."

I think I got it under control.  I deleted the small number of members, converted to Universal, then re-added them.
