We have setup MS Exchange 2010sp1 in /hosting mode.
this segregates all the hosted domains and their associated address books.  Unfortunatly it segregates is so well that Blackberry Administration Service cannot see the users to add.
I thought I could add all the users to the Main GAL then the BAM could see them but cannot figure out how to do this.
Is there any other way?

When the GAL is segregated - there is no main GAL available to show all addresses.  You have multiple segregated Address Lists.

If you change the settings to allow a global GAL - you will break the Segregation.

Not aware of a way around this I am afraid.

Here is what someone did for Exchange 2007...
Does it spur any ideas? If there is no Main GAL, then what does the BAM read to find the users that are in the root domain?

For the « All GAL » that allows the besadmin account have access to all users but so as users dont'see each other :

new-globaladdresslist -name "All GAL" -recipientFilter {(alias -ne $null)} -domaincontroller srv-exc01
Get-GlobalAddressList -Identity "All GAL" | remove-adpermission -user "authenticated users" -AccessRights GenericRead
Get-GlobalAddressList -Identity "All GAL" | remove-adpermission -user "authenticated users" -AccessRights GenericAll
Get-GlobalAddressList -Identity "All GAL" | remove-adpermission -user "authenticated users" -AccessRights ExtendedRight -ExtendedRights "open-address-book"
Get-GlobalAddressList -Identity "All GAL" | add-adpermission -user "besadmin" -AccessRights GenericAll
Get-GlobalAddressList -Identity "All GAL" | add-adpermission -user "besadmin" -AccessRights ExtendedRight -ExtendedRights "open-address-book"
Update-GlobalAddressList -identity "All GAL"

Thanks for looking....
