Currently migrating users from exchange 2007 to exchange 2013.
the current configuration, is the databases on exchange 2013 under client settings point to the GAL located still on the 2007 server.

The issue I am having is that users can search the GAL but do not see the users in the GAL.
what do I have to do on the 2013 side for the GAL to show up ?

thanks

First - they aren't pointing at the GAL, they are pointing at an Offline Address Book. Slightly different, but different though.

Which methods are you using for OAB distribution? Web and/or public folders?

Do you have any legacy clients?
If not, switch to web only and check the configuration of the OAB in Exchange.

Do the clients get any errors when you try to manually download the Address book from the Send/Receive menu?

all users are currently on office 2007 sp3 or higher.
I forgot to mention that in our 2007 environment we actually have 5 address lists using costume attributes to define them.

so if I do a get-globaladresslist it will have

default address list
default address list 2013
address list 1
address list 1 GAL
address list 2
Address list 2 GAL

now outlook clients are still only getting the default address list.
what I am trying to do is on 2013 have specific databases assigned with the specific address list.

also all address lists are currently only web enabled on 2007

and I apologize for the long delay.

It would have helped if you had outlined that to begin with.

You need to replace that with Address Book Policies. That will probably mean undoing all of the customised addresses list and recreating them.

You cannot assign databases to address lists - Exchange doesn't work that way. You assign address lists to users.
