GAL on two seperate Exchange servers

mystics7 asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-20
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.
Watch Question

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..


there is no trust setup between the two.

What about GALsync with this work since the domain are completely separate i do have domain admin rights on both domains.
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?
