Distribution groups

Hello -

When creating Global Distribution groups we need to allow some time for them to show up in Exchange.  We normally advise users 24 hours.  How do we force it quicker.

AD - 2003, some DC 2008.  Exchange 2003.

Thanks.

change the schedule for OAB generation to multiple times a day instead of just once...

This describes how to "get at" the schedule:

Tiras25,

It depend of your network infractature. It is just matter of propagation in the network. I do not think is something you can run to make it quicker.

You can also force Exchange to generate the OAB and instruct your users to download the OAB:

Outlook 2007
1. On the Tools menu, point to Send/Receive, and then click Download Address Book.
2. In the Offline Address Book dialog box, make sure that the Download changes since last Send/Receive check box is checked.

Outlook 2010
1. On the Send/Receive menu, point to Send/Receive Groups, and then click Download Address Book.
2. In the Offline Address Book dialog box, make sure that the Download changes since last Send/Receive check box is checked.
