fix

This issue is addressed in NetIQ Directory and Resource Administrator and Exchange Administrator version 7.5 Hotfix 49590.

Hotfix 49590 corrects two issues with how Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA) clones distribution groups in the Delegation and Configuration console or Account and Resource Management console:

  • After cloning a hidden distribution group, if you clear the Hide group from Exchange address lists option on the Exchange Advanced tab on the Group Properties window, DRA does not recognize that you cleared it. This hotfix addresses this issue and allows you to successfully clear the Hide group from Exchange address lists option.
  • After cloning a distribution group, if you clear the Send out-of-office messages to originator option on the Exchange Advanced tab on the Group Properties window, DRA does not recognize that you cleared it. This hotfix addresses this issue and allows you to successfully clear the Send out-of-office messages to originator option.

Note: This hotfix requires DRA version 7.5.

To download and install this hotfix:

  1. Close all DRA user interfaces.
  2. Run the DRA75000_Hotfix49590.msi file on each Administration server computer.

Hotfix 49590 modifies the NetIQ.DRA.Console.Accounts.dll file on each Administration server computer. By default, this file is located in the Program Files\NetIQ\DRA folder.
