Publish to GAL button not available RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I'm trying to assign an email certificate to about 5000 users that have their exchange environment on a different domain to their user accounts. When I try to publish to GAL it works only if the user does not have a resource account attached otherwise the button disappears. We have a lot of users with resource accounts, is there a way to publish to GAL without visiting them all and closing the resource account, publishing to GAL and then re-adding the resource account?

  • Hi Minxbak,

    Base on my search and test, this could be a bug, as a workaround, you can remove resource account and publish to GAL, after publishing, re-add the resource account again.
