hello, we are running e2013 SP1

I'm running the following command to re-target the recipient scope for a dynamic group using this:

Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -Identity office.apac -RecipientContainer ‘mydomain.com/Corp Accounts/Users’ 

Open in new window


however no matter what I specify in "-recipientcontainer"

when I run this command to view members:
$FTA = Get-DynamicDistributionGroup "office.apac"
Get-Recipient -RecipientPreviewFilter $FTA.RecipientFilter

Open in new window


I see recipients from other OU's that I did not specify?

is this a bug in E2013?

Seems to be a bug. While it doesn't display correctly Ed (an Exchange MVP) says it will actually work as expected.
