I have set up addresslist segragation - and cannot see my address lists

I have setup Address list segragation using the white paper http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/bb936719.aspx#ModFilSpecAtt called White Paper: Configuring Virtual Organizations and Address List Segregation in Exchange 2007

The settings all seem to work but I have noticed - due to addeing a Bes server, that the offline address book download has not been working for a few months.

When a user looks at their address book thay see the other users in their OU and nothing else. There is no entry for the address list which I have created. This means that when I go to download the offline address book I get an error 0x8004010F The operation failed An object cannot be found.

I have had this working before but do not know when it stopped working to even have a guess at what might have caused it. Any body any ideas on how to get the users to see the address books for the correct users?

  1. Which version of Outlook is having this problem
  2. Please check the attribute msExchUseOAB is populated with correct OAB.
  3. Is OAB Generation creating errors in app logs ??
  4. Does OAB have "Always Run" set as schedule
  5. Is it enabled on for PF Distribution or for Web Distribution also ??

Sorry not to have ansered this earlier. It was down to the address book roots. The default is the all address list. But if a name is referenced more than once in the global address list, it breaks the OAB as well as a number of other this than depend on this. Add the individual address books DNs to the addressbook roots using adedit.
