We have recently completed the exchange migration from 2003 to Exchange 2010. Prior to the migration, users were able to manage distribution lists and add/remove users in distribution list. Also all users were able to update their own information (cell phone number, etc) however since migrating to exchange 2010, all of these areas are greyed out and no one can make any changes.
All mailbox and distribution list are now on exchange 2010, outlook version is 2007 or 2010.

Any suggestions on how to get back this functionality is greatly appreciated.

Exchange 2010 utilizes a permission model known as RBAC Rules Based Access Controls. The users will have to be given permissions to perform those actions that are currently grayed out.  Take a look at the following to learn more and how to set it up

To further add to this, the RBAC group the members must be apart of is called MyDistributionGroup. Here is an article on it I usually reference as I can never remember this: http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2009/11/18/3408844.aspx

First of all, from where you are making changes? need to do the changes from Exchange 2010 consoles.

Managing distributionm lists is by default disabled as a measure to restirct (2010 permission model). To make the users able to edit the groups they own, please run the below script.

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

Not sure which one of these solutions worked (or not). I was pulled off to work on another hot issue, however not heard of any complaints in the last few days.

Thanks so much for your time and assistance.
