GAL Sync with Powershell

By | April 17, 2011

If you’re looking for a Global Address List synchronisation solution for Exchange that simply uses Powershell, look no further than this excellent script from fellow MVP Carol Wapshere.

The script doesn’t leverage the DirSync control (and hence doesn’t use deltas), which means that it isn’t perhaps as efficient as some of the full-blown solutions out there, but it has the beauty of simplicity!  Another advantage is that it doesn’t require any expensive infrastructure components – unlike most solutions that need at least one dedicated server and a database.

It also works with a variety of Exchange versions!

The script is likely to be most useful for SMEs during migration scenarios. Larger organisations or those looking for something long-term are more likely to invest in a more comprehensive solution such as FIM, SimpleSync or Quest ActiveRoles QuickConnect.

I encourage you to check it out.

    I can’t see the PowerShell script. Was the code removed? Any idea where can I see the code?
