Cannot generate OAB or see GAL in Exchange 2003 SP2 on Win 2003R2
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?
