Query GAL from website / intranet

Hi Experts,

I wondering if it would be possible to build in a search function inside my current intranet site that would have the capability to search the Exchange GAL (or any address list inside Exchange)? I will be quite a nice function to have centralised user details like phone numbers, email etc. (in AD / Exchange) and then have the ability to search for users from the intranet. If anyone could shed some light on this I would be very grateful! Thanks.

This data is stored in the AD. You can probably create a function that does an LDAP lookup.

Thanks ... but this sounds a bit out of my league ... do you know of any examples I can use/test?

Not right off hand but I am sure it can be done.
I'm like you in that it is out of my range of knowledge.

I found this though but I'm not sure it will be of any help:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/adsi/adsi/accessing_active_directory_using_visual_basic.asp

The above link should be all on one line.

Here is a search page on MSN for active directory lookup:
http://search.msdn.microsoft.com/search/default.aspx?siteId=0&tab=0&query=active+directory+lookup

Maybe someone else can provide an example.

You may want to post a pointer question in the IIS TA:

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Why reinvent the wheel when someone has already done the work.
Take a look at rDirectory from Namescape: http://www.namescape.com/
Their community edition will probably be fine for you.
