GALCONTACTS.DB - sizing and path location RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any information out there on the potential size of the galcontacts.db file which is downloaded to

    %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Communicator. ? For example I am testing with 20 users.....the file is small number of Kbs. What if I enable 100,000 users for OCS access? What size will my file be then??


    Also is it possible to store this information on a network share. For example if the users have their profiles stored on a local network server rather than the default local disk %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Communicator??

    Can I redirect to alternative storage location?

  • Our galcontacts.db file contains over 40,000 contacts (about 43k I think) and it is 24MB.


    Have you looked through the Communicator GPO guide for a GPO setting to change the path?
