Is this in an existing Exchange Organisation? You should already have a GAL if so - what are you trying to do might be a better way of looking at it, as segmentation of your addresses might be a better way to go.

I have working Exchange 2007, then I deployed Exchange 2010 and try to create first test GAL. In ADSIEdit I found 2 attributes GlobalAddressList and GlobalAddressList2. GlobalAddressList contents all my DNs. GlobalAddressList2 is empty. AD is Server 2008.

So can you browse them in the existing GAL? i.e. you aren't limited to 10000 results?

This might be around the same as the link above; http://www.petri.co.il/active_directory_search_limit.htm
