Exchange 2010 – “This operation can only be performed by a manager of the group” Error

KB ID 0000603 Dtd 15/05/12

Problem

Seen On Exchange 2010 (SP1), when trying to add a user to a distribution group.

Exchange Group Permissions Error

Add-DistributionGroupMember Failed Error: You don’t have sufficient permissions. This operation can only be performed by a manager of the group.

Solution

1. There a few reasons for this error, I’m assuming that there is no user set as the manager for this group? (Properties > Group Information > Managed By). In my case it’s a known bug in Exchange 2010 with SP1.

Exchange SP1 Build

Microsoft Exchange Server Build Numbers 2. This was fixed in Rollup 3 for Service pack 1 (source), Simply run an update and the problem should cease.
