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?

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!
