This article describes how to perform a command line Directory Export of the Global Address List (GAL) using the Microsoft Exchange Administrator program.
First, create an Export.ini file with the following contents:
[export] basepoint=/o=<orgname> exportobject=mailbox informationlevel=full subcontainers=yes
On the above file, <orgname> is the organization name as seen in the Microsoft Exchange Administrator program's containers view.
Then, run the following command from an NT VDM (command prompt), or place it in the properties of an icon:
admin /e <path>\export.csv /o <path>\export.iniIn this case, <path> is the complete path to the file including the drive letter and subdirectory.
This will create a comma delimited file that contains the mailboxes of all the names in the organization's GAL.
