Setting transport forwarding rules from distributed groups to distributed groups

I am trying to forward any emails that are going to a distributed group to another and it is not working. It allows me to put in the rule but the email never makes it to the second dg. I did some research and wasn't sure if this applies to an on premise 2013 exchange server.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Why not just add the group as a member of the other group?
When you are doing the forward, how are you actually setting it? Using the email address of the group, or something else? Do you have a restriction on the group, who can send to it etc?

it should work through transport rule . Check the second DG is mail enable.

I can email both DG fine. I want to get rid of the first DG after a few weeks of having it forward to the second DG.

I found this. Is this correct for on premise exchange too?

Why not just have the second group the only member of the first group?
