Unable to update props [cn=DL-Name ,OU=Users,OU=DistList,DC=mycompany,DC=com][HR=0x80070057]

Error occurred when migrating distribution lists (DL) that have a forward slash in the DL name.

DL membership is not updated.

The error code 80070057 translates to The parameter is incorrect. RC=87. This typically means that an invalid value was passed for the name of the property. This can be the result of an attempt to update a Distribution Lists membership with a DL or a mailbox that has a forward slash in the name.


To resolve, please refer to the following workarounds:

Workaround 1:

  1. Rename the source objects and remove the forward slash ( / ) from the Alias and Display Name of the object.
  2. Remigrate the DL.

Workaround 2:

  1. Remove these members from the DL.
  2. Migrate the DL.
  3. Update the target DL with the equivalent target members.
