I've created a site collection and its associated groups (owners, members and visitors) and associated the site collection admin as their owner. I then tried to get them using powershell and it worked fine.

Then, I changed the associated groups owner to a different user (which is members of the owners associated group) and tried to get them through powershell but this time, it seems like sharepoint is not recognizing them :

Does anyone has an idea of what's going on and how to let sharepoint recognize them even if the group owner is not the site collection admin ?



Please follow the instructions at "Set up groups" section of this article at support.office.com.

Or you might try setting $web's AssociatedOwnerGroup, AssociatedMemberGroup and AssociatedVisitorGroup manually in powershell

Also there is SPWeb.CreateDefaultAssociatedGroups method to create completely new set of groups, just in case
