Hi,

 

I'm managing a hybrid Exchange 2010 environment and have a number of distribution groups which were created on-prem. These groups are syncing via AAD Connect. The problem is, only members with user objects in AD are getting synced. I can see all members - users and contacts - when I view the DG on the Exchange server but when I look at the members in the Address Book in Outlook, I only see the user objects.

 

Is there a way to get the contact objects to sync up too?

 

Thanks

Paul

As long as they are in the sync scope and not filtered out, they should sync just fine. Check the metaverse object properties for one of the affected contacts. And the group as well.
