EXchange 2010 errors (GAL, OAB,)

Migrated from Exchange 2003 to 2010.  Still on 2003 domain

GAL will not update in cache mode, cannot see new uses in GAL, but can see new users in all users.

Uncheck cache mode and can see new users in GAL.  check cache mode and no longer see new users in GAL

Old exchange 2003 has been deleted from windows 2003 server, but server is still online serving as DC, DNS.  I thought I had correctly removed 2003 exchange from network, but  the uninstall completed with errors.  

Ran below command on Windows 8, Exchange 2010 power shell with following errors, which I think is causing my GAL to not update.

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-GlobalAddressList | Update-GlobalAddressList

That did get rid of the error message when running
 Update-GlobalAddressList -identity 'Default Global Address List'
However, the GAL is still not updating in cache mode.  It may be too earlier to tell yet, even with a manual update of the address book from Outlook.  Will keep you posted.

Thanks

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I created a new address book in organizational unit>Mailbox> Offline Address book>  On the new offline address book, right click and click "make default".   Went to Address book policy tab, right clicked on the address policy,  and clicked properties, then on the address book policy detail tab, under Offline Address Book, I browse and chose the new OAB, which I created.   The users GAL started to receive the updates to the GAL when adding new email users.

There are some very good articles on here, about how to delete and recreate OAB virtual folder, reset OAB virtual folder, but I did not have to do that.   I am tempted to delete the default OAB, but other projects dictate my limited time and energy, so for now the user's GAL are updating successfully.   Let me know if you still have a problem, and I will send you the link to the webpage for further

so by doing that it will still grab all original accounts, right?
