Hi,

Ive been having a few issues with generating the address books. Ive noticed these two events in the event log


EventID 9109
OALGen encountered an error ffffffff (internal ID 50506a8) while generating address list '/o=Sitename/cn=addrlists/cn=oabs/cn=Default Offline Address List'. Check other logged events to see if this is a serious error.
- Default Offline Address List

EventID 9334

OALGen encountered error ffffffff while initializing the offline address list generation process. No offline address lists have been generated. Please check the event log for more information.
- Default Offline Address List


Ive looked at previous posts, and looked at distinguished names in adsiedit, but this looks ok.
Anyone know what ive done wrong??

ps. this is a migration from 2003 > 2007 on a cluster (a/p)

Did you move all the replicas to Exchange 2007 - both public folders and system folders? In Exchange 2003 SP2, we have an option "Move all replicas".
Did you check the dafult OAB defined in each store in Exchange 2007?

Not sure I moved them. Can you confirm the procedure and I can check. I did replicate them though.

Although I havent done what you've said.
I did run this hotfix  http://support.microsoft.com/KB/955733, which has generated the files at last :)
Should I be moving these folders anyway?

Best way to identify the root cause of this issue is to enable the Diagnostics logging (maximum) for OAB and check the event logs.
Have a look the below link which talks about the OAB issues both in Exchange 2003 & 2007 http://blogs.msdn.com/dgoldman/Default.aspx?p=4
It is must to "move all replicas" to new exchange server, if you are going to remove the old exchange 2003 servers from your exchange organization.
