I am running Exchange 2013 and I have noticed in Outlook that a lot of the contacts in the Global Address Book are out of date. I recently went and update all of the Active Directory details so how can I get the GAL to populate based on the updated AD?

Also, I want to remove the contacts from GAL which are disabled in AD.



There is a cmdlet you can use to accomplish this.

To update your GAL Update-GlobalAddressList -Identity "Default Global Address List" -DomainController "YourDomainControllerName"

To hide disabled users in your GAL get-mailbox "Disabled_User" | set-mailbox -HiddenFromAddress ListsEnabled $true Or this will do this operation for all disabled mailboxes:

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited |Where{($_.UserAccountControl -like “AccountDisabled*”)} | set-mailbox -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true
