Offline Address Book EX2007

We have a Exchange Server 2007 that was migrated from 2003.  The old 2003 wasn't properly removed and now we have issues with our Offline Address Book.  It won't update.  

I get that the replication wasn't properly updated, I just need to get this fixed.  Below is what I ran in the shell and what it returned.  Can anyone please assist?  I'm also noticing a few other issues regarding address lists, address policies, etc..

Thanks,

Did you update all your Address Lists from 2003 to 2007? In EMC, see if you can open/edit any of the Address Lists. If not, they probably need to be upgraded to 2007. Also, is the 2007 server listed as the server generating the OAB?

It will not let me see any lists that were in existence in ex2003. When I preview all users it's blank (in exchange mgmt console). After seeing this I attempted to upgrade the all users list by including MailboxUsers. I still can't preview it. I've not had any issues until now, the exchange 2003 server died about a month ago. All seemed fine until I noticed a new user not showing up then errors on updating the list.

As for your other question, How would I check to see who generates it?

Yes, you need to upgrade all of the Address Lists, including the Default Global Address List.

As I said, the old Exchange 2003 server wasn't removed properly.  I though public folders were no longer needed?  (We have no Outlook 2003 users)

I am guessing your "Public Folder" Address List is having issues based on the second error. In EMC, can you edit/open the Public Folder Address List, or, is it all greyed out?

With the first error. How are you distributing your OAB? Is it still being distributed by Public Folders? Or have you switched distribution to EWS? Or is it distributing both ways.

Do you still have a Public Folder database?

What server is generating the Public Folders? Go to Organization Configuration --> Mailbox --> Offline Address Book tab,

When I edit the public folder list, the Container just shows the root  \
The recipients filter is:  Recipient Type -eq 'PublicFolder'
The preview shows a list of which I would say most are from EX2003 and prior.  Up to OAB version 4 along with many others, like the Schedule+ Free/Busy (two of them), a couple OWA scratchpads, some labeled with old server, etc...

This is the Exchange Server that generates the Offline address book.

Do you get the error listed here when you select Update on the OAB in EMC?
