I recemently migrated all mailboxes from my old server "2003" to my new server 2010, everything is working except for the updates to the GAL and the offline Address book.

If the client systems turn off cache mode, everything works fine, then they can see the complete GAL and all users are visible.

If they go back to the old cache mode the list is out of date,

help.

I don't know why, but I had this written in my migration notes..... Hope it triggers something for you.  Made complete sense at the time I wrote it.

update-globaladdresslist -identity "Default Global Address List" -DomainCotroller "dc-6.domain.com"

When you introduce the Exchange 2010 server into your environment it is a good first step to also setup the OAB distribution point and generation server on the CAS/Mailbox server.

When you create the OAB make sure that you enable Public Folders and Web Services distribution. Public folders distribution works with Exchange 2000-2003 and EWS works with Outlook client versions 2007 - 2013. If you do not enable this OAB will not work correctly for those versions of outlook clients.

Do the following...
- Open EMC
- Org Config>Mailbox>Offline Address Book Tab
- Create New OAB or if you have done so already open the properties
- Under Distribution Tab Make sure that Client support has all options checked and also "Enable Web-Based distribution" is checked as well
- Add the CAS server that you want as the distribtion point.

Thanks Will,

I did that proceedure last night, and the offline address book was supposed to allow me to update it after I did that,

however no luck, I still get an error when that is attempted from the EMC

I have verified that the OAB is hosted on the new server, which it is, but it isnt working when I attempt to update it.

Where are you getting this error message and what is the error message saying? Have you also checked the logs on the Exchange server to get more info?

All clients are outlook 2007, The existing OST files were all created when the systems were
originally connected with the old exchange 2003 server.

My onsite admin indicated that things worked ok if he turned off cache mode, so its not updating the existing cached settings from when the systems originally created their ost files.

I can go and reset everybody so they re pull their email to new OST files but there are some VERY large mailboxes, and that's a pain.

I am starting to wonder if it wouldn't just be easier to create a new OAB entirely?

Well baed on the error message above it states
the System Attendant Service is not running or you do not have permissions to perform this operation
.

Check your services and make sure that everything is functioning as it should.
