Resource mailboxes incorrectly being included in Dynamic Distribution Group

I have a DDG that I don't want to include Resource mailboxes. Properties, Filter tab has "The following specific types" button selected, and "Resource mailboxes" unchecked.

If I run get-recipient for the DDG, it lists all the resources (conf rooms, equipment, etc.), as well as the users I want in the DDG. Get-recipient displays RecipientType as UserMailbox, even though EMC shows them as Resources. I assume that is why the Resource mailboxes are included?

How do I change the resources to not be UserMailboxes? I would prefer not to make a filter using set-dynamicdistributiongroup.

Only with Set-DynamicDistributionGroup you will manage to do it. You need to filter deep.
All mailbox recipients have RecipientType = UserMailbox, but look at RecipientTypeDetails property, specially at RoomMailbox, EquipmentMailbox

Are you saying I should create a filter RecipientTypepDetails ne 'RoomMailbox' or EquipmentMailbox'?

Yes, you should exclude those 2 categories. I know I did it in the past such thing, but I don't have with me right now the scripts.

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.

The filter is working correctly for Resources and Rooms, by using the RecipientTypeDetailsValue parameter.

Set-DynamicDistributionGroup all-users -RecipientFilter {((((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox') -or (RecipientType -eq 'MailUser'))) -and (-not(Name -like 'SystemMailbox{*')) -and (-not(Name -like 'CAS_{*')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'MailboxPlan')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'DiscoveryMailbox')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'ArbitrationMailbox')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsvalue -eq 'RoomMailbox')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'EquipmentMailbox')))}

hoaglalj1 - Be a good sport and award the points to the person who helped you get the question answered - namely "lciprianionut"

You can include your answer as part of the solution, you just don't get awarded any points.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
