Giving a user access to modify Distribution Group Members.

Hello,

I'm running a Windows SBS 2011 server.  

A manager would like to be able to modify members of a Distribution Group.  
I've taken the following action , which does not seem to have helped:
1 - via ECP
- //servername/ECP
- added the manager as owner

2 - Exchange Management Console
Check properties for distribution group
Open properties for the D.G and set the user as member of "Managed By".

When I try to update the D.G via Address Book for the users, she still receives the following errror:
"Changes to the distribution list membership cannot be saved.  You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object".

What am I doing wrong here?  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Regards,
Real-Timer

You will need to create a new RBAC role to allow end users to update Distribution Groups in Exchange 2010. There is a PowerShell script on TechNet which can help you set this up. Have a read of this article for a better understanding as to what this script does: http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2009/11/18/how-to-manage-groups-that-i-already-own-in-exchange-2010.aspx

Hello,

After modifying the Default Role Assignment Policy, I am able to login as the user and modify the memberships.  Still can't do it from Outlook, but I guess this will work for now.

Thank you.
