    The creation of new distribution group in MONAD seems to have redundant steps.

    You type New-DistributionGroup -name test57 and press Enter

    And you are prompted to specify the Type of the new object. Duhh!!! Distribution. Didn’t we already imply that by starting the whole thing by entering the command "New-DISTRIBUTIONGroup"?

    Andrey, good observation. The type is necessary as we allow you to create mail-enabled security groups as well, see below:

    [MSH] C:Documents and SettingsAdministrator>New-DistributionGroup

    cmdlet New-DistributionGroup at command pipeline position 1

    Supply values for the following parameters:

    Type: ads

    New-DistributionGroup : Cannot bind parameter ‘Type’. Cannot convert value "ads" to type "Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.GroupType" due to invalid enumeration values. The possible enumeration values are "Distribution, Security".

    Thanks, ~vivek
