We have a user I am trying to add to a secure DL so they can send to the DL but we do not know the path to be able to delete and old user who is no longer here. This user being in this DL is keeping us from adding another user. We need to get rid if the user and using ADSIEdit but we are looking for full path in there to know where to go to remove the user?

"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.

In Google it just does not tell you the location in ADSI Edit to remove the user?

The account will be in the domain partition which should look similar to your AD structure, why can't you add an account to the DL? What is the error?
Dennis MillerAuthor Commented:
We are trying to use the ADSI edit to remove the user because it is a secure DL and I understand if a disabled user is listed it will not allow you to add or remove the user.

I found it. Under ADSI Edit, Default naming context in the local domain, OU=exchangeMigration, then to OU=recipients and there is the path to remove the
owner user or any member that is part of this group. It worked fine.

It was a struggle but I finally found the location. Thanks for the help Myself and the Exchange Admin finally found it. This definitely does the trick. The DL is secure and the owner was disabled as he is gone. This keeps you from editing the DL. Once the guys name is removed you can then edit the group or mailbox. Only disabled users cause this.
