The only way to edit default Gal is using ADSIedit. Honestly, I have to
wear a lot of hats being the only systems admin on campus, jack of all
trades master of none. So, I'm not experienced or too comfortable
editing AD in production. I already made GAL disappear in test
environment. I tried following KB article 822940 again. Strange, when I
go to apply the filter (field>User>member of), member of is not there.
Trying different permissions clients using Outlook still see GAL even
after being denied. Anyway, I have been thinking of an alternative.
Uninstall additional Exchange server from domain and go back to single
one for staff only.  Then, remove server from domain.  DCpromo server
and bring it up as a child domain. Reinstall exchange on the same
server. 

 

I have some questions.

 

1. Is there some special procedure to remove the 2nd Exchange Server.

 

2. Can you dcpromo a 2k3 server as a child domain into a 2k native
domain. Would it be better to uninstall 2k3 and install 2k? Would it be
better to bring it up in a separate forest and build a trust manually
later?  Can you build a trust manually between 2k3 and 2000 domain? 

 

3. What would be the best option to add student list on parent domain
GAL and Faculty list on child domain GAL, Universal Distribution group?

 

4. What happens to replication should the child domain fail.  Will it
cause a critical situation on parent domain?  Could it be removed
manually using ADSIedit without a lot of risk?

Couple things. If you don't want those user's to be listed in the
original GAL, you need to redo your filter to exclude them. Also if you
don't want the students to be able to view this GAL, create a DL put all
those students in the DL, go to the permissions of the GAL, add that
group and deny them list. I say deny, since you seem to be having issues
with permissions and deny will supercede any inheritance.  Then, create
a new GAL for the students, set the filter so only students show up in
this GAL. Always check the special permissions to make sure theres no
deny.

I'm adding an additional Exchange 2K3 Server for students. I don't want
the student accounts to be added to the GAL.  I have created two OUs one
for Staff and one for Students. I'd like to have the two different gals
set up to query the OUs.  I have tried adding new Gals and messing with
the permissions following KB article 822940 but can't get it to work.
Any ideas? Tom
