Synching GAL's WITHOUT using MS Identity Integration Pack
Posted on 2006-10-23
My organization recently merged with another non-for-profit organization. Each organization runs MS Exchange 2003 Standard edition. We would like to share our Global Address Lists with each other, so that employees can acces this information through outlook. We have established the WAN connection and all the related networking components are in place. We really only need this last peice to figure out how to synch the GALs.
I've looked through the existing threads, and it appears that the main option suggested is to use the Microsoft Identity Integration Pack (MIIP). Unfortunately, this requires both orgs to be running MS Exchange Enterprise Edition and also requires Microsoft SQL Serve 2000, which we don't have either.
Does anyone have any suggestions of how to do this using 3rd party, free software or just interesting hacks?
