restricting address book access in Exchange 2007

We have a single Exchange 2007 server running that is the mail server for two companies. Originally company A and company B fell under the same umbrella so sharing the global address book was not an issue. However, recently company B has been acquired by company C (which has no affiliation to company A).

We would like to keep company A and company B on the same E2007 server but would like to make it so that they do not share the same global address book. In other words, company A distribution groups, users and contacts would be listed in GAL A and company B distribution groups, users and contact would be listed in GAL B

Is there a way to make this sort of change to an existing E2007 environment?

Simple but needs some head bounce .... this has to be worked more like how GAL Segregation works :)

Rancy,

Thanks for all of this information. It has taken me some time to digest this information. It sounds like option #1 in the first White Paper url that you provided is the way to go, but this does not appear to be a simple task.

Correct me if I am wrong but this requires a variety of steps and is not a simple task, right?

Thanks again,

al

I tried what was noted here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb936719%28v=EXCHG.80%29.aspx but it did not work.

To make matters worse I even open a ticket with MS to work on next steps. I explain to MS that this if for internal segration (and not for a 'hosted' solution) and even though the MS documentation states 'The information that is provided in this white paper is meant for internal segregation use only' I was informed the MS Professional Support Services is not able to help me with this setup. I communicated to MS that no where in the MS documentation or Professional Services agreement does it state that they will not provide support a setup that is 'allowed' as per MS documentation

Not sure what else I can do at this point on this one.

Cheers.
