Outlook clients has problem when synchronize the offline adress book.

It come out the error:

Task "Microsoft Exchange Server" reported error (0x8004010F): "The Operation Failed. An object could not be found.

Few weeks ago, I just kill the 1st exchange server without any replication. And after that, I just regenerate the New GUID to rebuild the system folder. Then this problem occur. Search through the Microsoft KB (275171), and the solution is to regenerate the GUID again. I did it but it failed again. The same error still occur.

Could anyone help me to solve this problem?

Are you actually able to generate an offline address book without errors? This is E2K, right?

Under recipients in the ESM,offline address lists folder. Right-click on the default offline address list, and choose rebuild. It should rebuild without errors. If not,you have other issues. Post the error message here if necessary.

that's fine, but until you actually rebuild the OAB, it won't download. Relax, and let the server settle down. It'll work.

I hope this helps

Start Exchange System Manager.
Expand Organization, and then expand Administrative Groups.


Expand the administrative group to which the server belongs.
Expand Servers, expand the server that you want to configure, and then expand First Storage Group.
Right-click Mailbox Store, and then click Properties.
In the Offline Address Book section, make sure that a valid offline Address Book is listed.

If one is not listed, click Browse, and then click a valid offline Address Book. You can use Default Offline Address Book as the default setting

Good Luck

Thanks kidego and vahik...

try this morning after i done the GUID regeneration, it still cannot work... and Vahik remind me that the offline address list.... Oh.. God.... I select invalid offline address list... i select the one which is under the lost and found folder in the AD. I think this is the one when I kill the first exchange server and i didnt do the replication...

Thanks guy for help...

I've been having the same problem for about a month now and absolutly nothing seems to help.  I just did what was suggested in the 'accepted answer' and it didn't anything.  I've replace the GUID, rebuilt the OAB,etc..  Tried just about everything.

We've seen this on many occasions. Typically the problem is that the files did not get fully replicated to the oab server in question.  We had an issue where we restricted the size of files being routed and that caused the oab not to get the full information.  You will need to check the size of the file on ther server that generates the OAB and make sure that all the recplication servers are the same size.  If not, something is stopping them from getting all the data.  We've also seen that if the defaul offline address list is not associated to a file on the mailbox store.  This is on the general tab in the properties of your mailbox store.
