Check with FDS service and ensure those folders for OAB are available on the servers

Does the correct data show in OAB after update ?

So do you have the "Exchange OAB" as shared folder ?
If so check all services are running for Microsoft Exchange :)

Make sure there is enough disk space available on your exchange server.  Run the command chkdsk on the exchange and database install  drive and make sure in windows file system does not have problem. If you found an error the repair the drive using chkdsk / r and then check.

This event occurs if you have deleted the old one and re created the new OAB
well the issue lies if you have not added OAB to the mailbox store properties tab > Client settings > Offline Address book

Add it to the store update the OAB and check whether you receive the OAB successful generated event or not.

And as far as concerned with the second event

It depicts that an exchange certificate with thumbprint : 60D2DC77EAD704E40CAE7B20A20FDADD201F7867 will soon expire for the FQDN : exchangeserver.in you must get this certificate renewed

Type the this command in exchange powershell and check the details of this certificate
and the type for example it is a self assigned certificate , or a local internal server CA(Certification authority -) assigned certificate or a 3rd party Go Daddy CA assigned cert

Get-ExchangeCertificate |fl  

This will list all the exchange certificates.

Get-ExchangeCertificate -thumbprint 60D2DC77EAD704E40CAE7B20A20FDADD201F7867 |fl

This command will display all the details of the certificate you recieved the event for.
alongwith the services assigned to it for example : SMTP , IIS , IMAP , POP etc.
