does anybody have a script similar to address list conversion that will work on dynamic distribution lists? I have over 1000 of these that deal primarily with office, dept and title attributes. has there been any tools developed to work with opath in distribution groups other then emc? Unless I'm missing something that seems like a cruel joke by MS with what I found so far. It seems easier to use adsiedit directly on the attributes.
I'm finding 2 attributes: msExchQueryFilter has the ldap and msexchDynamicDLFilter has opath, is there an attribute that determines whether ldap or opath is used?

I've used the script ConvertFrom-LdapFilter.ps1 but it only seems to look at address lists, not distribution groups.

Ok, this Topic is not an easy one and there will be Problems and maybe you take a look at this summary first:

I believe it depends a lot on how the old groups are done, because not everything is 1:1 available in the new Exchange world.

Here is a another "how to convert" :

Boy do I agree with some of those comments, even in 2010 it's version 1.0. why would you not put all the available attributes in the gui?? most of what we have is in the available except a couple that will have to copy into a custom attribute. started on the conversion process with emc but what a pain in the a*.
