PowerShell script passing distinguishedName

I want to run this script to set an AD attribute:

$ad = [adsi]"LDAP://CN=\#SomeObject,OU=SomeOU,DC=SomeDC,DC=SomeDC";

$ad.msExchDelegateListLink.Clear();
$ad.SetInfo();

$list = Get-ADGroupMember "SomeGroup" -recursive | Select distinguishedName;

foreach ($group_name in $list)
{
	#this works as expected and returns a distinguishedName
	#write-output $group_name

	#this doesn't work:
	$ad.msExchDelegateListLink.Add($group_name)

	$ad.SetInfo();
}

Open in new window


It works, when I replace $group_name with a static distinguishedName. Unfortunately it fails in the above version:

Ausnahme beim Aufrufen von "Add" mit 1 Argument(en):  "Unbekannter Fehler
"
Bei C:\Users\Admin_Knell\test.ps1:11 Zeichen:32
+     $ad.msExchDelegateListLink.Add <<<< ($group_name)
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [], MethodInvocationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : DotNetMethodException

Open in new window


Did I miss something?

Thanks and best regards
Chris
