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.

Hi
Now Default Global Address list is update with name a.c after updating the list.
Thanks -MAS

But Still the old name is showing in outlook.
I think, I have to update offline address book also.
the command Get-Offlineaddressbook gave me result
Name                     Version               AddressLists
OAB <Ex2013>      version4             \Default Global Address List


But when I am using the command
Update-Offlineaddressbookupdate OAB

It gave error.

Hi,

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

Still the same
The operation couldn't be performed because object 'OAB <Ex2013' couldn't be found on DC01.abc.com
