GAL not updating on Outlook 2003 clients after migrating to Exchange 2007

Hi,

The title really says it all.  We migrated from a Exchange 2000 server to Exchange 2007.  Since doing that, all of the Outlook 2003 clients do not refresh their Global Address Lists.  It seems like when we setup a new Outlook profile, it will refresh once but will not update any new entires.

If we do a send/receive we get an error 0x8004010F.  I've tried updating via the shell on the Exchange server "Update-GlobalAddressList" and from the EMC.  Is it possible the clients are still looking for the GAL on the old powered down Exchange server?  How can we redirect the clients to the new Exchange server and verify that the GAL is actually there and working?

Thanks!

Have you created a new Offline Address book on the new Exchange 2007 ?
Did you specified the Offline Address book to be used under the database properties ?
Go at the "Organisation Configuration" , Database Management , check properties for the mailbox database and go to the "Client Settings".
Do you have any "Offline Address Book" selected ?
