Hello,

I migrated ex2003 to ex2010. Old server ex2003 is gone. On the new server ex2010 when i Update OAB i get the following errors in the event log -

OABGen encountered error 80040115 while initializing the offline address book generation  process. No offline address books have been generated. Check the event log for more information.
- \Offline Address Book

plus

OABGen encountered error 80040115 (internal ID 50004b0) accessing Active Directory ADserver for ''.
- \Offline Address Book

plus

Couldn't find an Exchange 2010 or later public folder server with a replica for the free/busy folder: EX:/O=MAIL/OU=FIRST ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP.

Does anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks for your help.

Go to Exchange Management Console and go to the Organization Configuration------Under mailbox---Offline Address Book TAB.
Check what is the generation server specified.

Sounds like you need to convert your OAB from 2003 to 2010. This blog post has step by step instructions and should fix your issue.

Yeah the existing one is likely a legacy 2003 versioned object. You can probably see references to it in the event log. You can use the powershell script in the blog above to convert it, or as terminateall says, just trash it and make a new.

Got this fixed by recreating PF db in AD using adsiedit tools.

I called MS and they cleaned up this for me. 250$ but it was worth it.
