Global address not updating under outlook cached mode
I created these as Universal Distribution Lists and nested them appropriately.I am expecting at least the top-level group to appear in my version of Outlook, but no dice. (1) Have you ran Exchange Best Practice Analyzer recently? I actually setup a group policy to turn that off because my GAL wasn't updating.This requires the installation of prerequisite components, so I'll need to do a snapshot beforehand.I get the same results in Outlook with cached turned off or on.Last week we added a new conference room in Exchange.When I look up the conference room in the Global Address List, it doesn't show up. So as I understood from our Sys Admin, the oab files are generated on one server, and rely on the file replication service on the global catalog servers (we have 2 of them) to copy the oab files to each of the servers.I've waited 24 hours and performed manual updates without success. (3) Do a manual download of the entire GAL, not just recent changes, and see if that helps.If the above doesnt work, then i would try the following as well: Get-Global Address List | update-Global Address List Get-Address List | update-Address List Get-Offline Address Book | Update-Offline Address Book Get-Client Access Server | Update-File Distribution Ser Thanks Dave, I have not yet run the Exchange Best Practice Analyzer.
I just deleted all of the sub-groups in Active Directory and recreated them in the EAC.Came across this issue at a clients, they where running Exchange 2010 although this would also apply to Exchange 2007.When a user in Outlook was NOT in cached mode and they went into the Global Address List to select users to send an email to they would see accounts of people who have not got a mailbox attached to them, were not mail enabled and did not even have an email address associated to them.This happens for the two users when they go to different workstations or get new pcs as well.
I have searched Google extensively trying to find a solution with little success.
Before cloning the accounts he had removed the mailbox from the template account however it had left the Exchange attribute “Show In Address Book” populated. When in Adsiedit open up the Default Naming Context then open up your domain name and browse to the OU that the user is in that you need to modify. Right click the user account and select properties.
