+ throw <<<< New-Object ApplicationException "Object does not exist: $fullPath"
 
Type: Parallels.Wpe.PowerShell.PowerShellException.

Cause

Object names from the following list are reserved and cannot be added to AD:

Everyone, Local, Dialup, Network, Batch, Interactive, Service, Proxy

Resolution

POA development is working on a permanent solution which will allow you to create such distribution lists. Until it is available, other names must be used for distribution lists. If a distribution list with a reserved name has already been created, cancel the background task on its creation and remove the list from POA Customer CP.
