Mailbox not showing in GAL

Hello

We have an Exchange 2007 environment.

Everything is running fine, however last week we created a new mailbox for a user named David Jones. For some reason, this is not appearing in the GAL (clients cannot search for him even in OWA).  I checked and the mailbox is not hidden from the GAL or anything like that.

I checked "update address based on email policy" and this was unticked, as it is for all our users.

Any ideas?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1. Ensure that you have the latest SP and rollup installed: Update Rollup 6 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 3 (KB2608656)
2. Update GAL using shell:

Update-GlobalAddressList - Identity "address list" -DomainController "domain controller name"

Open in new window


As per my article: Global Address List (Exchange 2003 + 2007 + 2010) + Outlook 2003-2010 common Issues and Solutions

Hope this helps!!!
