Contact List for ABP Exchange 2013

easyworks asked
Last Modified: 2016-03-10
I am trying to create an Address Book Policy (ABP).
How do I create a ContactList based on the steps from https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj657455(v=exchg.150).aspx

In Step 4: Create the ABPs it asks you create an ABP from the command they give you. They have listed in that step
-AddressLists "AL_TAIL_Users_DGs"," AL_TAIL_Contacts"

Open in new window

so it will throw back an error if you try to follow their steps.

I looked back in step 3 and I could not find anything referencing "Contacts". I guess what I need to do is create a AddressList and name it contacts from the input they gave me I assume i woudl just change "AL_TAIL_Users_DGs" to "AL_TAIL_Contacts"?
New-AddressList -Name "AL_TAIL_Contacts" -RecipientFilter {((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox') -or (RecipientType -eq "MailUniversalDistributionGroup") -or (RecipientType -eq "DynamicDistributionGroup")) -and (CustomAttribute15 -eq "TAIL")}
