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.

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.

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.

If the others do and the one does not then that is the issue right there.

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

Get-GlobalAddressList | FL

post the results here if you don't see anything. More or less i am just looking for the filter.
