Students using OWA can not access our GAL on a specific Database

WE have a 2010 exchange server that has 3 databases on it. Two of the database do not seem to have an issue accessing our GAL while using OWA. However one of the databases (Number two) which is for students seem to have an issue seeing the GAL. I might mention that the  third database is also part of the students. We have one test account that seems to be working fine which we have had for several years. Once we made a second test account and placed it on the 2nd database it can not see the GAL using OWA.

yes open exchange powershell...it will be in the exchange folder in the start menu and run that exact command. Just copy the results and paste them here.

I believe there are default OAB settings for each database. Make sure those are set under client settings tab of the database properties.

Zindel1 are you talking under the database drive? or is it in the Exchange Management Console. I do see a offline address book under Client access for the server configuration but that's it.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

no its in EMC under the database settings.

 In the console tree, navigate to Organization Configuration > Mailbox.
In the result pane, on the Database Management tab, select the database you want to configure.
In the action pane, under the database name, click Properties.

Select the client settings tab and make sure it has an offline address book assigned to it.

I would check your settings of your GAL using powershell and make sure it isn't excluding the database.
