Global Address Book won't publush on Win 2008 / Exchange 2007 Server

Last year, I installed a new Dell Win 208 server std with Exchange 2007 for a 30 employee client. I migrated the employees from Win 2000 to 2003 to 2008. Since then every time I add an employee, the Global Address book in Exchange does not get updated for the employees who all use Outlook 2007 on Win 7 Pro and Win XP Pro systems. I had one guy come in and push the address book out using powershell, but he hever showed me what to do and he is gone.

Last Monday morning, I went into Exhcange and put a custom publish schedule of every Monday at 1PM, but no employees see the new employee.

Please provide details on how do I correct this issue?

Those clients that are not seeing the new employees in the GAL must be in OL cache mode.
You will have to ask the client to manually full Download the Address Book by clicking on the Tools > Download Address Book > Full Address Book
Also let me know if you are experiencing any errors on the Exchange Mailbox server for OAB or you are getting any errors on the outlook profile for downloading OAB.

They tried this and it didn't bring down the new employee:

I would go in and check the properties of your Offline Address List. Make sure that it is set to something other than never run, and make sure that it is set to include the default Global Address list.

I checked the Applications log on the server and found this entry just about the time she pulled fown the address book. She cannot find the new employee listed.

Is there a log file I can view on the exchange server that shows what powershell commands were executed last time when the publish worked?
