Hi Experts.

When using teh Exchange management shell to update the global address list I get a load of warnings as listed below.

How do I fix this?

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>update-globaladdresslist -identity "Default Global Address List" -DomainController myMainDomainController
WARNING: The recipient "myLocalDomain.local/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/OAB Version 2" is invalid and couldn't be updated.
WARNING: The recipient "myLocalDomain.local/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/OAB Version 3a" is invalid and couldn't be updated.
WARNING: The recipient "myLocalDomain.local/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/Offline Address Book -\/o=myLocalDomain\/cn=addrlists\/cn=oabs\/cn=Defau" is invalid and couldn't be updated.
WARNING: The recipient "myLocalDomain.local/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/Offline Address Book - first administrative group" is invalid and couldn't be updated.
WARNING: The recipient "myLocalDomain.local/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/Schedule+ Free Busy Information - first administrative group" is invalid and couldn't be updated.
WARNING: The recipient "myLocalDomain.local/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/OAB Version 4" is invalid and couldn't be updated.
WARNING: The recipient "myLocalDomain.local/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/aEmailName1" is invalid and couldn't be updated.
WARNING: The recipient "myLocalDomain.local/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/aEmailName2" is invalid and couldn't be updated.
WARNING: The recipient "myLocalDomain.local/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/aEmailName3" is invalid and couldn't be updated

The first few are address book objects (i think) but the others seem to refer to old sub folders in the Public Folder list which I can't find.

I tried the shell commands listed in the first link and got this

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-AddressList "All Users" -IncludedRecipients MailboxUsers
WARNING: The command completed successfully but no settings of '\All Users' have been modified.
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-AddressList "All Groups" -IncludedRecipients MailGroups
WARNING: The command completed successfully but no settings of '\All Groups' have been modified.
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-AddressList "All Contacts" -IncludedRecipients MailContacts
WARNING: The command completed successfully but no settings of '\All Contacts' have been modified.
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-AddressList "All Contacts" -IncludedRecipients MailContacts
WARNING: The command completed successfully but no settings of '\All Contacts' have been modified.
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-AddressList "Public Folders" -RecipientFilter { RecipientType -eq 'PublicFolder' }

Confirm
To save changes on object "Public Folders", the object must be upgraded to the current Exchange version. After the
upgrade, this object cannot be managed by an earlier version of the Exchange Management Tools. Do you want to continue
to upgrade and save the object?
[Y] Yes  [A] Yes to All  [N] No  [L] No to All  [?] Help (default is "Y"): Y
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-GlobalAddressList "Default Global Address List" -RecipientFilter {(Alias -ne $null -and (Ob

DynamicDistributionList' -or ObjectClass -eq 'group' -or ObjectClass -eq 'publicFolder'))}
You can't peform this operation on default global address list "Default Global Address List".

Doesn't seem to let me update the Default Global Address List.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I followed
http://exchangeserverpro.com/unable-to-modify-default-global-address-list/

and this resolved the error I had trying to upgrade the Global Address List, however, I'm still getting exactly the same error when doing the

update-globaladdresslist -identity "Default Global Address List" -DomainController myMainDomainController

command.

I'll check suriyaehnop's comments....
