lets say i made a new distro group. how can i get all servers with the updated global address book?

What if i change the name on someone's account and i want to see the updates on the global address book? And will "send/receive" update everybody on outlook?

Permissions would be another thing.

thanks!

All of these are stored in AD not in Exchange. So as long as your Exchange servers have access to a domain controller/Global Catalog server then you should be ok.

Hope this helps.

OK, that makes sense to me, but for some reason when I force AD replication between sites, I see changes in regular AD stuff quickly (15 minutes?). But with Exchange stuff, I won't see all updated items till the next day. Any ideas what this could be?

Global Address Books update once a day (I think, maybe someone else will confirm this) if your clients are Outlook 2003 in cached mode.

My understanding is that send/receive is supposed to push it through in outlook 2003 cached mode. However, I did notice for the first time yesterday that if you did down deep

tools
options
mail setup
send receive
edit the group

you can check off "download offline address book"

which may be related, but since it takes a full day I have yet figured out a good way to test it yet.

There are two processes involved with the Offline Address Book.

- the OAB generation, which is done by default once a day (although that can be changed - I usually set it to three times a day)
- downloading of the OAB, which is done once every 24 hours or when Outlook is started (which cannot be changed) or by downloading the address book manually.

If the OAB hasn't been regenerated then you can try the manual things as many times as you like, it will not update.

I have written about the OAB updates on my web site.
