The global address list (GAL) is a directory that contains entries for every group, user, and contact within an organization's implementation of Microsoft Exchange. This topic explains how to create a GAL by using the Exchange Management Shell.

noteNote:
You cannot use the Exchange Management Console to create a GAL. You must use the New-GlobalAddressList cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell.

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Organization Administrators role.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

  • Run the following command.

    New-GlobalAddressList -Name <String> -IncludedRecipients <Nullable> -ConditionalCompany <String>
    

    For example, to create a GAL for the Contoso company, run the following command.

    New-GlobalAddressList -Name "Contoso GAL" -IncludedRecipients MailboxUsers -ConditionalCompany Contoso
    
    noteNote:
    If you are using precanned conditional filter properties, the IncludedRecipients parameter cannot be blank.

For more information about managing GALs, see Managing Global Address Lists.
