A month or so ago after my overseas counterpart updated his child domain mail server to Exchange 2007 I lost the ability to update my Offline address book.  It first manifested itself when I added a new user to AD but was unable in Outlook 2010 on Win7 to attach him to the Exchange Server for outlook use over the VPN.  His Web Mail via OWA works just fine.  I have followed a number of threads found here and am afraid that I have now caused myself more problems. I have just recreated the GAL  the preview would indicate that it is behaving correctly.  I next deleted and recreated an offline address book calling it OAB to differentiate it from a number of other Offline lists found in the public folder show system folders view.  I cannot make this new folder the default for the exchange server because the pubic folder wont be created till 5 AM.  Can we troubleshoot this today or must we wait for tomorrow when hopefully the public folders will be there?

If you right click on the offline address book you can tell the policy to generate OAB now. Once this is done you will need to go to the settings on your mailbox database and change which OAB it is looking at.

I'm not that Familiar with Exchange 2007 and OAB. We are still using 2003. I have taken all the courses but cause I've not experimented with it I'm not sure. I'll let someone else answer this one for you.
 Good Luck.

It will be a fault with the way the 2007 server was promoted. There are allot of commands you need to run on both domains in order to allow the 2007 server to talk correctly to the 2003. These i'm not 100% sure off. My Apologies.
