Strange one here.. I have ONE user who doesn't appear in the Offline Address Book in Cached Mode for users. I can't figure it out, I've even blown away the OAB and re-created it. It generated the oab.xml, but this one user doesn't appear in the Global Address List; He appears under "All Users" if you pulldown. Any ideas what it could be?

"Hide from Exchange address lists" selected?
User account disabled?

Did you turn up logging for the OAL generator?

Set-EventLogLevel "[YOUR SERVER NAME]\MSExchangeSA\OAL Generator" -Level high

Turns out when I recreated I had to assign the Info Stores to the new OffLine Address Book, plus I had to run the shell to re-create the OAB for the CA Role Boxes.
