LDAP Address Book on Canon ScanFront 220 scanner shows hidden addresses. I need to get rid of the hidden addresses.

I have a Canon ScanFront 220 that is looking up our addresses using LDAP. The only configuration option that I have is "Search Base:", in which I have typed: ou=our domain users,dc=domain,dc=local. This works fine, except that it shows all of the hidden Exchange mailboxes that we have which is a big no no for us. Is there any way through that "Search Base:" that I can exclude all users that have a hidden Exchange mailbox? I have Exchange 2003 & Server 2003. Thanks in advance.

PS - Someone had mentioned in another post about using "!msExchHideFromAddressLists=*" but I can't figure out how to use that in the Search Base.

Thanks.
Jon

Hmmm - if the Search Base is truly your only configuration option you might be out of luck. That option only tells the device the top level to begin searching, and it searches everything below it. Assuming it's not showing every object (computers, printers, etc) in your AD structure the device is using some sort of search string to narrow it down to users.....but that may be hard coded.

The string mentioned in another post could be used in something like the following. Basically it's an LDAP query that finds all users, with an email address ending in @mydomain.com, that don't have the attribute msExchHideFromAddressLists=TRUE (which are accounts that are hidden from the GAL)

(&(objectClass=user)(mail=*@mydomain.com)(!msExchHideFromAddressLists=TRUE))


I'll try to find if the ScanFront allows this type of configuration, but again if Search Base is it....not sure there are any options to hide those accounts.

Didn't seem to work. Oh well, I just created a separate OU outside of the Users & moved all the ones I don't want showing into that OU. It's a little more work but as long as it works I'll deal with it.

Thanks for the help in any case.
