Refering to this article:

One of the initial steps is to create a global distribution group, and new member distribution groups. Is it possible to setup the HAB with existing distribution groups that were already created and being used?

For example, what if for the root distribution group there already is a 'All Users' distribution group that should be used instead of creating a new one?
