Exchange & Outlook Public Folders

By gary31 ·

I'm no IT person, but am on a project with a directory involving Active Directory, and Public Folders.

I've several issues, one of them being thant I need to get a headquarters directory both available for the HQ and local branches, but with telephone numbers made unaivalable for branches.

I'm wondering in which direction i should get our It guys look (although my feeling is I may have to get external people to work on it).

What would seems good is to have two public folders with one of them for branches usages. The agencie folder would be a replica of the HQ folder, on to which telephone numbers would be scraped.
An other unice thing is I would still need some telephone numbers to show up into the directory used by branches.

Do you have any suggestions ?

Depends a great deal on whether you have Exchange and how you have configured the user information in this AD Forest. Generally extended attribute information, ie phone numbers, are available to an LDAP query from authenticated users.

You can grant permissions to public shares based on security group membership, which would accomplish your goal. This won't work if that information has been entered into the user's object properties.

If you aren't sure and your IT guys aren't knowledgeable in AD, time to call in a design architect.
