I work for a company that has a location based in the US and the UK. Both networks are completely separate. The owner of the company wants the US companies Global Address List to show in the UK one and the same the UK in the US. Both sites have Server and Exchange 03.

is there any trust in place between the domains?

If not, you will need to make a copy of the GAL and place it on the other server....i'd have to lookup sharing a GAL from a remote exchange organisation if you have a trust between domains..

you will have to do a directory export and import using the csvde command...then you would have to create a new address list based on a filter - i would recommend you import into an OU called other organisation GAL or something similar....

i think GALsync just copies the GAL to a contacts file, whcih you could do yourself from outlook in both domains, but you then have no way to import the address list back into the other exchange server. I guess you could use a public contacts folder?
