      To hide a universal distribution group from the global address list in Active Directory, you can use the Active Directory Users and Computers tool.

      1. Open the Active Directory Users and Computers tool.
      2. Locate the universal distribution group that you want to hide.
      3. Right-click on the group and select Properties.
      4. In the Properties window, switch to the Attributes tab.
      5. Scroll down to the msExchHideFromAddressLists attribute and check the box next to it.
      6. Click OK to save the changes.

      This should hide the group from the global address list. Keep in mind that the group will still be accessible to users who know its name, but it will not be displayed in the address list.

      Alternatively, you can use PowerShell command:

      Set-ADGroup -Identity “GroupName” -Add @{msExchHideFromAddressLists=”True”}

      Where “GroupName” is the name of the Group you want to hide.
