Updating the global address list
Try: get-help new-Global Address List -full Help with error message: 'Access to address list service on all Exchange 2007 servers has been denied' try the following. It worked for me, also maybe try a different name, I tried "Worcester2" the second time I ran the command. Note 3: If you don't get the required result either create a new Global Address List, else use set-Global Address List to modify the one you created earlier.
Note 4: Real-life example from Brett Here is syntax that I used after I deleted the old GAL manually using ADSI Edit.
In Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 and earlier versions, LDAP filtering syntax is used when customizing default address lists (which are created during an Exchange installation).
However, in Exchange Server 2010, the OPATH filtering syntax replaces the LDAP filtering syntax.
Furthermore, certain commands are ONLY available in the Shell, for example, new-Global Address List.
As a learning progression, by all means start with GUI Exchange Management Console, but note as each Wizard completes so it shows you the corresponding Power Shell commands.
I'm having an issue with Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010. This problem started after we flattened our domain. We migrated all the users from the the sub to the top using the ADMT and then we took down sub. To be sure, does OWA (which uses live information) reflect the GAL correctly? The first thing you should do is on a test workstation, is delete the *files.
Essentially, the issue is the GAL is not updating in Outlook. I looked at the recipient filter of the GAL, it's below for reference: (Alias -ne $null -and (Object Class -eq 'user' -or Object Class -eq 'contact' –or Object Class -eq 'ms Exch System Mailbox' -or Object Class –eq 'ms Exch Dynamic Distribution List' -or Object Class -eq 'group' -or Object Class –eq 'public Folder')) The next thing I'm going to try is creating a new GAL and making it the default, if necessary. That will force Outlook to download a complete GAL. If so, it is probably that the incremental update files haven't updated correctly.
Download and install the utility, then inspect your mail queues, monitor the Exchange server's memory, confirm there is enough disk space and check the CPU utilization.

Either leave the configuration alone, and just let Outlook users see the Default Global Address List; or else, take the time to study, plan, and test before you implement custom Address Lists.
