Error when you try to create a Dynamic Distribution Group in Exchange Admin Center in Office 365 dedicated/ITAR

Symptoms
You try to create a Dynamic Distribution Group (DDG) in the Exchange Admin Center (EAC) for Exchange Server 2013 in Office 365 dedicated/ITAR. In this situation, you receive the following error message:

'contoso.managed.com/Users/ Test DDG 1' isn't within your current write scopes. Can't perform save operation.

Cause
This issue occurs if you don't have permission to write to the default organizational unit (OU).
Resolution
To resolve this issue, a member of the SSA-Mail Recipients group can specify the appropriate OU in the Exchange Admin Center (EAC) or by using Remote PowerShell (RPS).

In Exchange Admin Center (EAC), follow these steps:
  1. Create a Dynamic Distribution Group (DDG). Click browse to specify the OU:

Using Remote PowerShell (RPS), follow these steps:

Use the New-DynamicDistributionGroup cmdlet to create a Dynamic Distribution Group (DDG). Make sure that the OrganizationalUnit parameter is specified, as in the following example:

New-DynamicDistributionGroup “Test DDG 1” –Alias tddg1 -OrganizationalUnit contoso.managed.com/MMSSPP -IncludedRecipients AllRecipients -ConditionalCustomAttribute1 “Test User” 
You may also want to specify the container that contains the recipients by using the RecipientContainer parameter. By default, the group will look for objects in the OU that is specified by the OrganizationalUnit parameter value.

For example:

New-DynamicDistributionGroup “Test DDG 1” –Alias tddg1 -OrganizationalUnit contoso.managed.com/MMSSPP/Groups -IncludedRecipients AllRecipients -ConditionalCustomAttribute1 “Test User” –RecipientContainer contoso.managed.com/MMSSPP/Groups/Users
For more information, see New-DynamicDistributionGroup.
