Distribution group issue

Hi All,

I tried to create 4 distribution group (Mail Universal) on exchange 2010, could not do it unless I had one set up in AD first. Still after doing that I couldn't  change any SMTP adresses in it, was getting an error message about latency between the AD and exchange so I decided to start from scratch and deleted the groups from AD and now I cant delete the group in Exchange because the AD groups doesnt exist anymore. Not sure how to proceed from here.

Any advice would be helpful

Thanks in advance

Have you checked the Exchange logs, If you are getting mis-match information between Exchange and AD then there might be replication issues. Ultimately everything get's addressed in Active Directory. i.e. when creating a DG in EMC it registers this information in Active Directory.

Check your replicaition for AD using the following commands

Repadmin /replsum
Repadmin /showrepl

Also run...
dcdiag /v
