How long has it been?
Our GAL takes at least 24 hours to update.

A couple things to check:

1. Check the Display Name in Active Directory User and Computers, under the properties of this user. The Display Name is what is used to populate the GAL

2. In outlook make sure for your Address Book that you set to the Global Address List and once again try searching for the Display Name that you verified in option 1

Hi Tim,

I verified the display name. but no success.
I notice one thing.
Actvie directory domain structure is
Rift.net
under rift.net
two cdc - corp.rift.net and main.rift.net

The user mailbox is created under main.rift.net and user is not visible to corp.rift.net users in their OAB and GAL
