Exchange 2013 GAL Search RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    I want to limit the Char for search from 4 to 2 in order to search the GAL on phones. I checked and found below article , but this one is for Exchange 2010. I tried the same after taking the backup of web.config file , but its not working.

    Do we have any documents for Exchange 2013 also, whether this is possible or not. If not possible is there any document i can refer.

  • Hi,

    Which CU version are you used?

    I find a link about this issue, and this issue remain works in Exchange 2013. For your reference:

    Please note that you need do this in all Exchange 2013 server, and run IISRESET to take effect.
