Upgraded to Exchange 2010, we now have a problem!
I have managed to free up one of our servers (moved some roles over to other servers)
Reloaded Windows Server 2008 R2 and installed Exchange 2010
Moved the mailboxes over (created new databases as you need to when moving them over)
Moved the offline address book, external connections etc
Only problem we are having is that the address book dont work, no one can find email addresses whening typing in.
I have found we have three email address policies
- Student E-Mail Address Policy
- Staff E-Mail Address Policy
- Admin E-Mail Address Policy
These have a recepients filter linking them to there database
this is what is on the recepients filter
(Database -eq 'MAIL01\Admin Storage Group\Admin Database' -and RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox')
(Database -eq 'MAIL01\Teacher Storage Group\Teacher Database' -and RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox')
(Database -eq 'MAIL01\Student Storage Group\Student Database' -and RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox')
Im assuming that as this policys are set to the wrong database this is why the email address cant be found when checking someones name in a new email?
What would be the correct Exchange PowerShell to update these policies or even create new ones?
Sure sure how our support company oringinally set this up... hense this problem
Is there a need for all these email policies? Cant we just use one?
Or is this needed to connect to the databases?
Im a little confused here, if someone could help
What the difference between these?
Global Address list
Also after searching Google to see what the default address lists, I have found out we have the extra
Student Address List (Global Address List)
Student Global Address (Address List)
Null (Global Address List)
I have looked at how oringnal documation the comopany gave us and found this part
Student Global Address List
Because the students GAL (Global Address List) should not list teachers and admin staff I have written a series of programs which set the GAL to a list which only includes students. These programs run every hour during the day, this is designed to catch new users before they logon. Because of the it is best to wait an hour after creating new users before letting them logon. The programs are scheduled tasks on the mail server so they can be ran separately if necessary.
For the so could series of programs I have found Scheduled Tasks that run batch scripts, one batch for each year group. But I cannot show you the batch script because I can not see this is location the Scheduled Tasks is linked to... Someone must have deleted this folder! So that doesnt help
How do you guys deal with students seeing teacher name of email addresses? Not sure what excaully what 'students GAL (Global Address List) should not list teachers'
Would that mean it will not list the teachers name or does that it wont find it at all? Never tested this, cant know because all the files are missing
Would like it so it can find the teachers email address but not show their name, as their not meant to know the teachers first name.
Thanks a lot in advance
Hopefully this is easy, fedup of the last two days, teaching moaning they dont know people email addresses
Again many thanks!
