I am supporting the headquarters office of a large company that owns several well-known companies. The new CTO has asked us to integrate the GAL of each of the operating companies into the GAL at the headquarters. I've suggested contacts folders and public folders, they will not be accepted as solutions, he wants what he wants and failing to give it to him will just result in unemployment. So, now that you have the background, here's the problem.
I export the GAL from one of the remote sites and import it using CSVDE (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/327620
), but though the imported objects show up in AD they are not appearing in the GAL. Immediately after I do the import everything is cool, but within about two minutes they vanish! This does not happen in my test environment, and I'm not finding any information on anyone having asked about it here before....Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the hell I am doing wrong here? The "Hide from address list" box is definately NOT checked.
