Our GAL is missing on about 90% of our 2007 clients. Not sure if there is something to check to verify it is working ok.  The way i have worked around it is unchecking the box for Exchange Cache Mode. Any ideas?

Did you assign the gal an oab to you database to make it the default? Go to you database and check with oab is assigned.

mnevoso,

Would you please expand on how you tracked the problem down to a certificate and what you did to resolve it?  I'm having similar issues with the migration from Exchange 2003 to 2010.  Your comments are appreciated.

Thank you!
