  • Would like to add a bunch of contacts to every user without using GAL or local contacts. Is this possible??

    If i try and enable an AD contact i get not valid originator SID Field in AD

    I can create exchange address lists but these do not appear in Communicator.

  • The OCS Address Book will only show objects already in AD.  You can create a distribution list (mail-enabled) and then add it to each OCS user's contact list using either LCSAddContacts.wsf or a thrid-party tool called OCSCM.

    Take a look at this thread for more details: http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/communicationsserversetup/thread/c60f15b5-7bf0-42ec-b9a3-89070396fa70

  • You may use   (OCSCM) Microsoft Office Communications Server Contact Manager.It's an administration mmc tool that will integrate with Microsoft Office Communication Server 2007 and Active Directory to provide an easy way to provision OCS users’ contacts list.   OCSCM is designed to show you how to manage the contacts and groups for individual ocs users by interacting with the Active Directory Domain Services and Microsoft Office Communication Server 2007/R2 and lcs 2005.
