Please try to update the addressbook

Hi,

first you should do is to log to OWA, and check if you can see this user. You are most likely going to see that user.

If that works, then you should update OAB. Outlook, by default, uses cached mode, so you need to update OAB.

Run these commands:
get-offlineaddressbook
update-offlineaddressbook -identity "...." <-- type identity that you got from command above.

After this is done, it can still take some time for users to see change. You can force manual download of address book, to make sure it is done as it should be.
From Outlook --> Send/receive --> send/receive groups --> download address book.

Regards,
Ivan.

OAB <Ex2013>      version4             \Default Global Address List


But when I am using the command
Update-Offlineaddressbookupdate OAB

Hi,

you should use command: update-offlineaddressbook -identity "OAB <Ex2013> "
Use ""
