Exchange 2010 shell

Hello Experts,

I have updated the active director and I populated the photos of users. I noticed that the offline address book is not getting updated.

I want to use shell to do the following but I need some guidance.

1. I want to know how to find the default address book.
2. How to check the attribute that shows what is the setting on the offline address book.
3. Set the offline address to have the pictures of the users.
4. update the offline address book.

Thank you.

To get all the details of the offline address book you can use the shell command

Get-OfflineAddressBook | Format-List

There is a link of the "get-offlineaddressbook" commands below

Did the OAB stop building once you added photos?

MANY time I find it's easier to just blow away the OAB and start over (Unless you have a large org.)  This is a good article that explains the steps.

This is not about rebuilding the offline address book and causing more issues. I just want to change the attribute and update the offline address book. Here are the steps I took but I need help


I PS c:\Get-offlineAddressBook --> This gave me the offline address book.
name: Default Offline address List  

I was able to check the attributes

By typing
C:\$oab =C:\$oab = Get-OfflineAddressBook
C:\$oab.ConfiguredAttributes

in the list the ThumbnailpHOTO  is showing as Type Indicator.

I want to change that to Value and also I want to update the default offline address list.
