Exchange 2016 global address not updating
Rather than waiting 24 hours for Outlook to update the Offline Address Book on its own, you can force an update via the Send/Receive menu button.You can disable the option “Download changes since last Send/Receive” to make sure you get a complete fresh copy of the OAB but this could take longer to download.
Is there any way I can force a manual update of the Offline Address Book (OAB) in Outlook or reset it completely otherwise?To solve this issue, you need to do the following steps.Start Adsi Edt (be careful with this change) Go to default Naming Context Microsoft Exchange System objects Open the properties of the objects which gave the warning in the Power Shell message./Microsoft Exchange System objects/OAB version 2″ is invalid and couldn’t be updated.” This warning occurs in my situation way after the migration of exchange 2007 to exchange 2013.So I am unable to use the old GUI of Exchange 2007.If you are not seeing correct contact information in the GAL for someone that has a valid email address (i.e.
someone who just received a CUMC email account, a new student, someone who recently changed their directory information) please use the steps below to synchronize your computer's locally cached version of the GAL.
This delay between an email account being create and being listed can cause organisational issue, like a users being unable to find the email address for a new staff member.
To resolve this you have two option, manually update the Address Book or customize the update schedule.
I'm having an issue with Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010. This problem started after we flattened our domain. We migrated all the users from the the sub to the top using the ADMT and then we took down sub. To be sure, does OWA (which uses live information) reflect the GAL correctly? The first thing you should do is on a test workstation, is delete the *files.
Essentially, the issue is the GAL is not updating in Outlook. I looked at the recipient filter of the GAL, it's below for reference: (Alias -ne $null -and (Object Class -eq 'user' -or Object Class -eq 'contact' –or Object Class -eq 'ms Exch System Mailbox' -or Object Class –eq 'ms Exch Dynamic Distribution List' -or Object Class -eq 'group' -or Object Class –eq 'public Folder')) The next thing I'm going to try is creating a new GAL and making it the default, if necessary. That will force Outlook to download a complete GAL. If so, it is probably that the incremental update files haven't updated correctly.
It still takes a few minutes to locate his information.
