Global Address book note updating - exchange/Oultook 2010

We are running Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010. The global address book is not updating on the clients. I noticed that several new users/mailboxes that have been added in the last several weeks have not shown up in the Global Address book. They do show up in OWA. Is there a way to fix it so the daily automatic update runs or am I stuck doing a manual update every time I add a new user?

Ok, it sounds like your Offline Address Book is not updating, rather than your Global Address List.

If you issue the following command, what is the value for "Schedule"

Get-OfflineAddressBook | fl Name,Schedule


The output from mine has a schedule like this:

Name     : Default Offline Address List
Schedule : {Sun.05:00-Sun.05:15, Mon.05:00-Mon.05:15, Tue.05:00-Tue.05:15, Wed.05:00-Wed.05:15, Thu.05:00-Thu.05:15, Fr

I've tried to run it from the powershell on the workstation and exchange and it says:

PS H:\> Get-OfflineAddressBook | fl Name,Schedule
The term 'Get-OfflineAddressBook' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program
. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

You need to run that on your Exchange server using the Exchange Management Shell - sorry if that wasn't clear!

I got it to run, had to select "Import system Modules' when opening the powershell. This is waht I get:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-OfflineAddressBook | fl Name,Schedule


Name     : Default Offline Address List
Schedule : {Sun.4:00 AM-Sun.4:15 AM, Mon.4:00 AM-Mon.4:15 AM, Tue.4:00 AM-Tue.4:15 AM, Wed.4:00 AM-Wed.4:15 AM, Thu.4:0
           0 AM-Thu.4:15 AM, Fri.4:00 AM-Fri.4:15 AM, Sat.4:00 AM-Sat.4:15 AM}


Looks like its scheduled to run every day.
SaoiCommented:
Yep, that looks fine.

Do you have any errors if you run:

Get-GlobalAddressList | Update-GlobalAddressList

?

Yes, this is what I get:

Ok, not sure those are the issue, but to get rid of them, browse the Public Folder Management Console and edit each of those public folders, set the Alias under Exchange General to whatever the name is without spaces - e.g. OAB Version 2 becomes OABVersion2.

OK I've cleared all the warnings listed above. Do I need to wait for the automatic update to run?
comteksoAuthor Commented:
I checked today and it still hasn't updated. Not sure what to look at next.
