Default Global Address List and Global Address List
Posted on 2014-04-10
Need some help with GAL and OAB please
Using Exchange 2010 - Version 14.2 (Build 247.5)
Outlook 2010 Clients - Cache Mode setup
Client machines showing the within the "Select Names: Default Global Address List" two drop downs that are listed as.
"Default Global Address List - email@example.com" (selected by outlook as default)
"Global Address List - firstname.lastname@example.org"
I am having issues whereby when changing display names and adding users/mailboxes within AD the "Default Global Address List - email@example.com" is not showing changes, having even waited a few days.
I have forced update on the OAB and restarted FDS service and then forced download of address book within outlook client. Still doesn't help.
The "Global Address List - firstname.lastname@example.org" when selected from the list is however reflecting the changes fine.
I suspect OAB is corrupt. Having reviewed the OAB Tab area within Organisation Configuration under Mailbox I see two entries within this CAS server pointing and the MBX server. One set to True and one set to False.
1) Why are there 2 Global Address Lists showing on the outlook 2010 client machines. IS this standard in cached mode
2) Why are changes not being updated when forcing updates to the "Default Global Address List - email@example.com"
Many thanks in advance
