Hello guys,

I need some help with a tricky address list.

Basically I deleted the address list, created a new one and I still see the old (not updated) address list. If I connect in OWA everything is ok,

Using Outlook 2010 or 2013 the same results.
Exchange 2010 on the server with custom Address Book Policies for each department.

Created multiple local profiles and also tried from multiple user accounts, same results.

What can we do?

Thanks,
Alex

1) What error are you getting.
2) Did you try download manually.
3) Did you try forcefully update .
4) Can you check CAS server are added on web distribution point.
5) Can you run test- email configuration.
6) Can you restart file distribution Service.
7) What about autodiscover service

Please update

Hello,

1 & 2. As you can see in the printscreen attached on outlook if I go to send and receive, download address book I can see the only the old address list.

address list problem
If I go in exchange power shell and do get-address list, I cannot see the old address because I personally deleted it.

Outlook anywhere is not in sync with exchange server somehow. Created a lot of new profiles with more users. nothing changed.

3. Yes, with Update-OfflineAddressBook, even updated the server, we have this problem for many month

4. oab distribution:
oab-distribution point
5, please be more specific
6. restarted the service and also the server, nothing changed
7. Autodiscover is ok, just did and testexchangeconnectivy and all is green.

8. oab properties
oab properties
please advise, this is driving us crazy :) for the last half of year

In the end we managed to resolve the problem.

Solution:
You need to do do 2 things, in this order:

1. We did not used to have a distribution point for the Offline address book so we fixed that first, you need, even if we restarted the entire server we had to wait 1 day for data to be updated.
2. You need to delete the local profile.

Thanks,
Alex

Basically i tried all the methods described above and they did not worked for us.
After I fixed all the server settings we saw that nothing changed on the client side.
Next day everything was ok after we had reset the local profiles.
