o365 and distribution lists

I migrated distribution lists from on prem to o365 and now the owners cannot manage the dl's

The error I get is "Changes to the public group membership cannot be saved. You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object".

how can you manage a dl that has been migrated from on prem to o365?

That's the expected behavior if you are syncing the groups: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2417592

In most cases, it's easier to just recreate the DLs directly in the cloud.

OR, if you are using windows 7 above
you run the following (don't require admin rights)

C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe dsquery,OpenQueryWindow

and search for the DL they want to edit, and add/remove member it needs to.
(of course, Dirsync still applies)

i recommend ID: 41212750 as accepted answer.

i.e. you cannot made any changes to cloud distribution group if you have Dirsynced
