im trying to run a simple script to get a list of members in a exchange dynamic distribution group
im using rthe following code


Get-DistributionGroupMember -identity “group name” | Export-CSV C:\MyFile.Csv

but it keeps giving an error saying the object cannot be found
i have tried several groups and it cant find any
these groups do exist

here is the error

The operation couldn't be performed because object 'group name' couldn't be found on 'server.domain.com'.

Open Exchange Management Shell and run:

Set-ADServerSettings -ViewEntireForest $True
Get-DistributionGroupMember -identity “group name” | Export-CSV C:\MyFile.Csv

yes.  Get-DistributionGroupMember does not work with the dynamic groups.

Bcoz,
dynamic DL's are based on specific recipient filters rather than a defined set of recipients.

you need to use Get-DynamicDistributionGroup to get hte properties of dynamic DL.
