GAL Contacts

    Question

  • Hi all
    Please can someone confirm how OCS clients query the exchange GAL, I have a number of distribution groups that are used to schedule meetings, I can see them in outlook and arrange meetings but unless I either add them as a contact in outlook I can not schedule a meeting with them via the ocs client

    thanks

  • OCS does not query the Exchange GAL
    OCS has its own Address book service (generated every night)
    Each client downloads that addressbook from the Web components server
    This Address book should have the Distribution Lists next to users.  There might be something wrong that the OCS Account cannot search for the Distribution Lists?

    Communicator also contacts your own contacts that reside in your mailbox so that is why it works when you add them to the contact list

  • Hi
    Other method you can achieve it.
    You can use the OCS client and invite participants by E-mail, and then you can invite distribution groups which configured in your Exchange System to participate in your meeting.
    Hope this helps!

    Regards!
