Sorry I didn't get the update for some reason. You can simply create the new GAL set it as default then remove the old one.

You can accomplish this by using Exchange Management Shell...

New-GlobalAddressList -Name "Name Here" -IncludedRecipients MailboxUsers

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

That is correct. If the old one is corrupt you can use the Remove-GlobalAddressList to remove the corrupt Gal and then use the above command to create the new one.

If users are using cached mode for Outlook they may not see the new GAL right away.
