Override a Distribution Group Naming Policy

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

A group naming policy is a template applied to the distribution group names in your Microsoft Exchange organization. As an administrator, there may be times when you need to override the naming policy.

Looking for other management tasks related to distribution groups? Check out Managing Distribution Groups.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Distribution groups" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

noteNote:
You can't use the Exchange Management Console (EMC) to override the distribution group naming policy.

This example creates the distribution group ITDepartment and overrides the naming policy.

New-DistributionGroup -Name "ITDepartment" -IgnoreNamingPolicy

This example changes the name of an existing distribution group and overrides the naming policy.

Set-DistributionGroup -Identity "DL_HRDept" -Name "Department_HR_AllStaff" -IgnoreNamingPolicy

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see New-DistributionGroup and Set-DistributionGroup.
