single forest and domain. 2000 domain and forest func level, will be demoting one 2k dc soon in order to change to full 2003 func leve, but I dont' think this matters.  Small domain env with 30 users, all working off a t1(full 24, yes pathetic in these times.. lol)
 
Whenever I make a change/addition related to AD users exchange mailbox, requiring the GAL to be updated it doesn't seem to occur until a long while later.  Like the next day, so.
1. can  I determine exactly the time setting it's going by to udpate, presently?
2. how can I make RUS udpate more timely?
3. what is the reasonable/normal RUS update time behavior to be expected?

Thanks!

RUS only runs once per day by default, you can manually rebuild/update if you require faster updates.

Manually, but stopping and starting the service? Wouldn't doing so interrupt my users/mail?

RUS normally runs constantly. It is the OAB that only updates once a day by default.
You can force RUS to update through ESM, it doesn't affect the users (well wouldn't do with 40 users).

ESM, Recipients, Recipient Update Services.
