I'm trying to find out if anyone has removed a distribution group from AD so it can be managed by users in O365?  If so, how does one remove it from the on premise exchange so it can be managed in the cloud?  I'm sure ti can be done through powershell but I do not know what he exact command would be.

You probably mean recreate it from on-prem to the cloud, not just remove?

No, they are currently sync'd from on prem using dirsync.  I want to stop them from being managed by the on prem servers and move them to the cloud with out recreating them all.  What I am looking for is a way to tell the cloud they own them.

You cant. While for users we have the ImmutableID exposed, and the corresponding parameter for the Set-MsolUser cmdlet, for groups this is not the case. So while for users you can stop dirsync, change the immutableID and exclude the object from the sync to complete the process synced->cloudonly, this is not possible for groups. If you exclude them from Dirsync, they will be removed from the cloud AD.
