just go to EMC -> org config -> mailbox -> open the offline address book tab -> right click on your address list and move it

I guess your speaking about OAB and not GAL ?
Is the other server a Mailbox server as only a Mailbox server can build a Address List

Hi, cant move the OAB because I only have one server.  Does it matter if the GAL says originating server old2007mailserver

GAL can you please share a screenshot of GAL ? Ideally if OAB it should be pointing to Exchange 2010 as i assume you would retire the old 2007 server is sometime from now

Welcome to the Exchange Management Shell!

Full list of cmdlets: Get-Command
Only Exchange cmdlets: Get-ExCommand
Cmdlets that match a specific string: Help *<string>*

Tip of the day #32:

Tab completion reduces the number of keystrokes required to complete a cmdlet. Just press the TAB key to complete the cm
dlet you are typing. Tab completion kicks in whenever there is a hyphen (-) in the input. For example:

 Get-Send<tab>

should complete to Get-SendConnector. You can even use wildcards, such as:

 Get-U*P*<tab>

Pressing the TAB key when you enter this command cycles through all cmdlets that match the expression, such as the Unifi
ed Messaging Mailbox policy cmdlets.

So now the originating server is no longer the oldexchange2007 but the GC in the site.  users still can't see the global address list in outlook though

What users see in Outlook cache mode isnt GAL its OAB .... to see GAL open OWA\Webmail and check details out there

Using the OWA I can see the global address list, just not connecting in outlook

Solved my problem finally, the Microsoft Address Book Service was not loading, researching I found this article:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/exchange2010/thread/2d55edb0-8e34-4e02-b87b-d66f725deaf8/?prof=required

Cleared the key in registry and got the Address Book Service started, loaded outlook and the GAL & OAB loads, Outlook works perfectly.
