GAL has disappeared

When I'm looking in the System Manager I can't see the "Default Global Address List" but when I try to create a new with the same name I'm told that it allready exist.

I log in as Enterprise Admin and I usealy don't have any problems viewing it.

Any ideas?

Check with AdsiEdit.
You should find it under Configuation / Services / Microsoft Exchange / <Organization name> / Address List Container
Check the ACL (Security tab) in the properties of the addresslist. You could create a new one with a different name and compare the ACL's.

Most likely is someone tried "playing around" with the security on the address list.

Hope this helps,

I can't access the properties but you are right when saying that someone has played around with the the security settings. I won't get into who or why but just say "I did'nt do it... unless someone saw it".
