Change Distribution List Owner by filtered target

Hey Guys,

I need to replace respective add two new owners/managers to alot of distribution group of ours.

I googled and played around a bit and crafted the command below, but I don't have a test environment, so I am a bit afraid of using it (not all too familiar with emc shell yet).
Basically what I'd need is: Get all Distribution Groups with Owner/ManagedBy "ABE" and replace it with users RIDA,VANM,ABE
Could someone tell me if this would be the correct way or am I totally barking up the wrong tree:

Get-distributiongroup | ?{$_.ManagedBy -eq "ABE"} | set-distributiongroup -ManagedBy RIDA,VANM,ABE

thx and in advance for any suggestions :)

Your command makes sense and might take the objects passed through the pipeline.  If not try this:

$groups = Get-DistributionGroup | Where-Object {$_.ManagedBy -like 'ABE'}

foreach ($group in $groups) {
    Set-DistributionGroup $group.alias -ManagedBy RIDA,VANM,ABE -WhatIf
}

Open in new window

Note I added a -WhatIf to the end of the foreach loop.  Remove it if you want to write the new values.

Your suggestion worked! Thanks alot.
My command unfortunately did not work. The shell didn't come up with an error message but also hasn't made any changes.
