I am trying to create a new Global Address List in Exchange 2010 using a recipient filter with two or more custom attributes.

New-GlobalAddressList -Name "GAL_HSMS" -RecipientFilter {((CustomAttribute1 -like "HSMS") -and (CustomAttribute2 -like "Faculty") -and (CustomAttribute3 -like "Staff"))}

Command executes without an error, however run I run the Update-GlobalAddressList -Identity "GAL_HSMS" it returns 0 users.

Any Help would be appreciative.

thanks,
Scott

Have you already set these custom attributes on these mailboxes?

For example, Set-Mailbox -CustomAttribute3 "Staff"

Yes, all the attributes have been assigned, and works fine if I use a single attribute, just doesn't work if I use multiple attributes.

Ok, I know what I was doing wrong, I was writing three And Statements rather than 1 and and 1 or statement.

So I would need Attribute1 = hsms and or attribute2 = faculty or attribute3 = staff.  not sure if this can be done, I may just need to use another attribute as fac_staff.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Recipients filter:
((CustomAttribute1 -eq 'HSMS') -and (((CustomAttribute2 -eq 'Faculty') -or (CustomAttribute3 -eq 'Staff'))) -and (Alias -ne $null))
