Global Address List Not Updating

Hi All,

We are experiencing the same issue as outlined in this URL: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/exchangesvrdeploy/thread/813ec258-4de4-4f78-b249-b81a2c8363ce/

We have recently migrated mailboxes and public folders from Exchange 2003 to a newly installed Exchange 2007 instance and have had them running side by side.

The last thing I have done was to

        1.  Migrate the System replicas
        2.  Change the Global Catalogue server from the Exchange 2003 server to our secondary DNS server

Since then, the Offline Address Book on our Outlook clients are not in sync with the AD list.

I have followed the advice above and would appreciate any help.

1. Check the value of addressBookRoots attribute. By default, it should only be All Address Lists. If you have any other values, please remove them.

 

Original Value:   CN=Address Lists Container,CN=WO,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=domain-name,DC=local


I have tried to change this value to "CN=All Address Lists " as instructed above. But get the following "The name reference is invalid. "


2.  get-globaladdresslist |fl

IsDefaultGlobalAddressList   : True
RecipientFilter              :
LdapRecipientFilter          : (&(mailNickname=*)(|(objectClass=user)(objectClass=contact)(objectClass=msExchSystemMailbox)objectClass=msExchDynamicDistributionList)(objectClass=group)(objectClass=publicFolder)))

3.  Here I have a few Warnings and not sure where to look or correct them.

Update-GlobalAddressList -identity 'Default Global Address List' -vb

4.  Mike mentioned to force AD replication and ensure all DC has correct attribute value configured.  How is this done?..

Why isn't the Global Address Book updating ?..

Many thanks

Michael

I assume you've already gone into the properties for the mailbox store and pointed it to the offline address book that's hosted on the Exchange 2007 server?
