Address Book - OCS with LCS RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're implementing OCS 2007 in a very large forest, and in one of the domains, LCS already exists with a huge number of users.  OCS is being pushed to most of the other domains of the forest, but at this point, we don't want to "play" with each other - at least not with the Address Book.  Right now, we've only got a few pilot users, but the Address Book has thousands of LCS users as well - which we don't want.

    We've been able to find the ABSConfig utility, which allows us to do some configuration, but not sure if it's going to meet the need yet - it wants to filter everything based on the OU - each OU would have their own Address Book - which we don't want.  We want one Address Book of all of the OCS users, but none of the LCS users - at least for now.

    Any suggestions?

  • In the lab, we figured out that we could add the attribute of "msRTCSIP-OptoinFlags" to the Configure Attributes list in the ABS Configuraiton Tool (we did NOT check the "Is this Attribute Required?" checkbox as we don't want it listed in the Address Book.  We then added the attribute to the "Only include users that have a value for this AD atribute" and ensure that its radio was selected.

  • What you could do is Configure a Locked Down AD environment and Remove Permissions for the OCS 2007 Service Account in the other domains or OUs
    But that is not really how it is intended to be used

  • It worked!!!  Our Address Book went from over 200 MB down to 40K!!!!  WOW!  We may still have a few LCS users in it, but nothing like before.
