Sync Exchange 2007 GAL to Exchange Public Folder
Posted on 2013-01-21
I have an Exchange 2007 Server with a Global Address List (GAL) and a Public Folder called "Public Global Address List". I need to find a solution (preferably via scripting that I can automate via Tast Scheduler) that will allow me to sync the GAL to the Public Folder I mentioned.
There are many reasons for doing this. Here are two reasons:
1) The GAL is very limited in the views that can be shown. For example, we want to have the list grouped by Department.
2) We have custom fields we want to view that we can see when it's in a Public Folder.
The sync need only go one way (from the GAL to the Public Folder), and should be able to update/add/delete the entries in the Public Folder from the GAL. Another way to accomplish this would be to delete all the entries in the Public Folder and then simply export out all of the GAL entries each time it is synched.
Thank you for your time and attention to this.
