Hello,

You can't use an operator with switches. So, if you are going to use the -ConditionalCustomAttribute switches, they need to equal the value you set. If you want to use an operator, you need to use a recipient filter.

Like this:

New-DynamicDistributionGroup -Name 'All Test DL' -RecipientContainer 'contso.com/new' -IncludedRecipients 'MailboxUsers'  -OrganizationalUnit 'contso.com/new' -Alias 'AllTestDL' -RecipientFilter {(CustomAttribute9 -notlike 'NOALL*')} 

Open in new window

Sorry, you need to remove the -includedrecipients switch when using the -recipientfilter switch.
