Updating global address list exchange 2018
Address lists are used to group recipients based on organization’s department, location, or any other criteria so that it is easier for users to find recipients.
For larger organizations that have hundreds and thousands of mailboxes, segmenting email address is very important.
(Note that I’ve replaced my domain with “domainname.com” and my organization name with “containername”) What I’ve tried I don’t want to use the old OAB, or GAL, I don’t care about either, our GAL and distribution lists needed to be organized anyway, so at this point I really just want to get rid of the old reference to the “first administrative group” and move on.
WARNING: The recipient "domainname.com/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/Containername Contacts" is invalid and couldn't be updated.
I'm very tempted to completely delete the entire "first administrative group" tree from adsiedit and see if that gets rid of the ridiculous reference that no longer exists but I dont want to break something else.
Commands run to try to create a new GAL and tell exch10 to use that GAL: This did nothing for me except now when I run get-globaladdresslist or with the | FL pipe I see two GALs listed, the “default global address list” and the “NAMEOFNEWGAL” that I created.
Default address lists are, All Contacts, All Groups, All Rooms, All Users, Public Folders and Default Global Address List. So we want to create two different address lists based on the city location of the employees. At first, I will create custom address list for Toronto city. Type Toronto as the keyword and click ‘ ’ add symbol. I have named the address list as Ottawa-Address-List with value of Ottawa in custom attribute 1.
I will use custom attribute feature in Exchange 2013. So I will type name of the address list as, Toronto-Address-List. You can preview the list of mailboxes in each address list.
