I just joined a company where their AD has 6634 Universal Groups and 205 Global Groups; the original folks who set this grouping pattern in motion are gone and I need to propose a method to convert a majority of the Universal Groups to Global Groups to un-bloat GC replication. Has anyone else done something like this? Is there a suggested approach which would scale to this size 'migration'?

Thank you,

Do you have MS Exchange 2010 \ 2007

It requires Exchange Distribution groups to be universal

If not, then you can go to properties of universal group and covert it to global, apply it
