Install and configure the Address Book Policy Routing agent in Office365/Exchange 2013/2016


If you have multiple GALs (Virtual Organizations) in the environment and its been segregated using address book policies. GAL1 user can view the information residing contact cards of the GAL2 user. To avoid that

you can configure the ABP Routing Agent, If that level of separation is not required . you can safely skip these process.

When the ABP Routing agent is installed and configured, users that are assigned to different GALs appear as external recipients and they can’t view external recipients’ contact cards.

Open Exchange Management shell –

Install-TransportAgent -Name "ABP Routing Agent" -TransportAgentFactory "Microsoft.Exchange.Transport.Agent.AddressBookPolicyRoutingAgent.AddressBookPolicyRoutingAgentFactory" -AssemblyPath $env:ExchangeInstallPath\TransportRoles\agents\AddressBookPolicyRoutingAgent\Microsoft.Exchange.Transport.Agent.AddressBookPolicyRoutingAgent.dll

Run

Enable-TransportAgent "ABP Routing Agent"

image

Restart-Service MSExchangeTransport

or Start – Run –  Services.msc

image

You can run below to check the agent has been created.

Get-TransportAgent

image

Now run

Set-TransportConfig -AddressBookPolicyRoutingEnabled $true

Now other GAL users can’t view their other GAL users contact cards.
