    Exclamation Outlook Connector and multiple GALs

    Have 3 domains - just upgraded from 4.10 to 5.04.

    With previous version, GAL in Outlook would show all users from all domains, as well as up to two aliases for each user.

    Now with new version - multiple aliases are hidden - very nice.

    Issue, GAL only shows users primary domain. Tried running (as zimbra):

    zmprov mcf zimbraGalInternalSearchBase ROOT

    No change for Outlook users. GAL in web client works properly (shows all domains.) I did not check the webclient before running command above - so do not know if the system was all ready working. Suggestions?

    TIA,
    -Keith

    Did you adjust zimbraGalSyncInternalSearchBase as well?

    Default Outlook Connector migration issues

    Migrating from 4.5.10 to 5.0.4 (and Outlook connector 5.0.3) - for some Outlook clients - upgrade appears to go smoothly, but they never receive email into their inbox from the previous night. Syncing as well as the Repair option of Outlook connector does not help.

    Each time - the failed upgrades show a sync error in the folder:
    Sync Issues > Local Failures

    What seems to fix the issue for me:

    1) Backup everything to a .pst (have not needed any of this yet - but just in case).

    2) Uninstall the Outlook connector

    3) Reinstall Outlook connector and sync

    Hope this helps,
    -Keith

    PM:
    ***************
    Sorry - which section should I have put that in?

    Can you send me the command for adjusting:

    zimbraGalSyncInternalSearchBase

    TIA,

    -Keith
    ***************
    Already moved it to Zimbra - Forums > Desktop Connectors > Zimbra Connector for Outlook

    Same way you set zimbraGalInternalSearchBase on global or domain level.
    zmprov mcf zimbraGalSyncInternalSearchBase ROOT
    (or zmprov md domain.com zimbraGalSyncInternalSearchBase ROOT)

    Default That fixed it - thanks

    Running (as zimbra user):
    Code:
    zmprov mcf zimbraGalInternalSearchBase ROOT
    
    zmprov mcf zimbraGalSyncInternalSearchBase ROOT
    and now the users can see addresses from any of our domains in the GAL.

    Thanks again! I also appreciate all the fixes and upgrades from the 4.10.5 series.

    -Keith

    Well I'm running ZCS 5.0.2 running 2 domains that needed to share their GAL and the following, as you've suggested above, has worked a treat:

    zmprov mcf zimbraGalInternalSearchBase ROOT
    zmprov mcf zimbraGalSyncInternalSearchBase ROOT

    Thanks for that.

    What I have now in the GAL is a few extra Users, that I'm certain are Zimbra mandetory users, but I wish to exclude them from the GAL.
    They don't appear as mailboxes, so the "Hide from GAL" option is not going to work for me...but I would love to learn how to exclude:

    zimbra
    zmamavis
    zmpostfix
    zmreplica

    Thanks in advance,
    Anthony.
