We have a situation here. So, basically our users right now are in the group abc>users will be migrated to a new OU like abc>country>users. This will affect several dynamic distribution groups with the old filter.

Normally, when we created our dynamic distribution group, we set a filter like this:

Set-DynamicDistributionGroup list1 -RecipientFilter {((((((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox') -and (Manager -like 'CN=Manager1,OU=USERS,OU=abc,DC=europe,DC=corp,DC=ad,DC=com'))) -or (DisplayName -like 'Surname Name'))) -and (-not(Name -like 'SystemMailbox{')) -and (-not(Name -like 'CAS_{')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'MailboxPlan')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'DiscoveryMailbox')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'ArbitrationMailbox')))}

This list contains all the users that have a Manager called Manager1

The problem is that we have to modify more than 300 lists, which means every list has their own Manager.

How can we proceed with this?

    You can try to export the dynamic distribution list with filter info to a csv file, then search and replace the ou, last export the csv use foreach to set the dynamic distribution group again.
