I am not sure if hiding object in GAL would show in Address list .... however you can try create a new Address list for contacts or have them listed in 2 Address list (GAL and another custom address list and select HIDE from GAL)

Thats what i guess  ...... very limited but can always tweek things :)

Hope you know how to work with ADSIEDIT
Go to ADISEDIT -> find user ->  go to properties of the user in Adsiedit and check attribute "showinaddressbook" ...... there would be one or multiple just share the data with me .... will have to uncheck the "Hide from GAL option" and play with this attribute to get you a solution if possible.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

ADModify.NET

Please please .... be very careful with this tool !! Understand it completely before you work on 15000 try few times on 2-5 contacts ..... any issues mail me :)

Are all these 15000 contacts in a specific OU ?

Just check and hope you should be able to work with Admodify to resolve all .... but just try to work with Custom attribute and it should help.
