Hidding Global Address list with Exchange 2007

I had followed this to try to segment my address list. I had used EMS to create second Global list based on query usermailbox and attribute5. I had apply this new gal to only me.

Once log on to OWA, I only saw newly GAL. Once I manually delete it from EMC, now appeared this newly GAL was assigned to all users.

How to change to default GAL in OWA

Please help it is urgent

Hope you have followed complete article as by default when we configure with EMS - it works only for Outlook. The article has also published the step by step information on configuring it for OWA.

If you want to revert back or to start from Zero - you need to first ensure created GAL is deleetd and Configuration Partition (under serverice - exchange) this update is replicated to other domain controllers.

Then create Default GAL again or to configure with addional GAL

After I restarted the server and access the Address book in OWA. An error message appeared like below:

Access is denied. Outlook Web Access was unable to access the Active Directory resource. This may be because the Active Directory object does not exist or the object has become corrupted or because you do not have sufficient access rights for that object
