Management Agent for Active Directory Global Address List (GAL)
Applies To: Windows Server 2003 with SP1
The management agent for Active Directory global address list (GAL) is preconfigured with rules that synchronize data in Active Directory forests. These forests are enabled for Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 or Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 to create a GAL across multiple forests.
The management agent for Active Directory global address list is essentially a preconfigured management agent for Active Directory. For more information about the properties of this management agent, see Management Agent for Active Directory
MIIS 2003 Features Supported
This management agent supports the following MIIS 2003 features:
Each forest participating in the GAL synchronization must be configured by using a separate management agent for Active Directory GAL.
If an Active Directory GAL management agent is deleted, it does not change the metaverse schema or the flow rules that apply to other GAL management agents.
When you delete a GAL management agent, the schema object types and attributes that were created by that management agent are not removed from the metaverse schema. For example, if a GAL management agent is used to create a custom contact object type (forest1_contact) in the metaverse schema and that GAL management agent is then deleted, the forest1_contact object type remains in the metaverse schema.
This management agent does not support password management.
