Hey experts,
I have a company who had thousands of contacts in a couple exchange accounts.  They want to know if there is a why to backup all contacts off the exchange server.  They do not want to have to go on the individual machines they want it pulled from the server directly.

Hi, do you mean to backup the personal contacts of each and every user connected to the Exchange server?

Yes,
It there a way to backup all the contacts.  
I ofc have been backing up the entire exchange store.  But is there a way to do just the contacts of all the users at once?

You could use Exmerge to pull those specific folders;

Download and run Exmerge, in the options you can specify to only back up certain folders - in there, select \contacts

You would also need to set permissions correctly -> http://www.petri.co.il/grant_full_mailbox_rights_on_exchange_2000_2003.htm
