Outlook 2007/2013 Sync error 0X8004010F Exchange 2013

My clients have been receiving the following error with outlook 2007 and 2013:
Not downloading Offline address book files. A server (URL) could not be located
0X8004010F

Using the Test-OtlookWebServices on the Exchange 2013 server I get the following error:

Can start by checking here:  http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/exchange/en-US/b8147e9a-e1a6-44d5-9480-54632f81ddd2/not-downloading-offline-address-book-files-a-server-url-could-not-be-located-0x80004005

Its for Exchange 2010 but can lead you to the right direction.  Just seems like its not assigned.  Are all the exchange services started and running?  Do the users have permission to get to the OAB?  I once had to add authenticated users to the web.config file.

check the permissions here: %ExchangeInstallPath%\ClientAccess\OAB\

You was correct the OAB was not assigned to the MaiboxDatabase. This has now been corrected

Also the the Web.config files did not have the Authenticated users group associated with it at all. I have given it read and execute rights for now.

All Exchange services are running.

Sadly still getting the same error, do I need to restart a service or the server?

yes, you will need to restart all Exchange Services after configuring them.

I have restarted the Exchange server but sadly the same error is showing. Is there a was to update AutoDiscover with the OAB address?

Nick RhodeIT DirectorCommented:
Try running the connection test again to see what gets thrown back.  I think now your just missing the URL location in IIS for the OAB

Would by chance have http redirect turned on for OAB would you?

Outlook is not showing the sync error any more but is hanging sending/receiving at 50%

Also I have noticed the when running the Autoconfiguration test when ctrl and right clicking on outlook icon the OAB url is pointing to the following https://mail.guyhollaway.co.uk/OAB/ab5a2e24-02a6-4513-8718-34d0a88567ba/
When exploring the virtual directory that GUID folder does not exist, just a bin folder and web.config files

Did you ever set it at one point?  Because if you ever set it on the default website that options delegates down the branch to all sub directories

Can't you just remove and recreate the OAB?

No never set the HTTP redirect at all. I have attempted to recreate the OAB Virtual directory.  a few times.

I followed the OAB Virtual Directory, but not the OAB. I ran the command to recreate the OAB but failed to add the virtual directory value thus I ran it earlier. I can attempt it all again and start from the beginning.

 OAB File location

According to this article the OAB is generated by the Organisation Mailbox then stored in the OAB directoy.

I know I had a corrupted SystemMailbox account so maybe the problem lies there.

will let you know if I get any further.

Finally fixed the issue. It was the systemMailboxes that where the fault. Tried rebuilding them according to a microsoft TechNet article but that failed. Then I follwed the following article and the GUID folder was created and all is well again: hhttp://blog.hametbenoit.info/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=419#.UNPGwtU1iJc

Thanks for the assist NRhode. You helped a lot!!!
