rebuild OAB, the hard way

by ashij In reply to Exchange 2003 GAL won't u ...

Are you trying to syn in the cached mode? Check that, if it doesn't work, go into Exchange Server Mgmt. and rebuild the Offline Address Book. if that completes, then try syncing again.


Once the OAB rebuild is completed, you can download the results to OUTLOOK by using the F9 key.

If you are getting errors when downloading the OAB, the files on the workstation may be corrupted.

Do a search for your OST file, the other files in the same directory, OTHER THAN THE OST FILE make up your OAB. Delete these files and perform a manual send/receive (F9 key). This will download a clean copy of your OAB.
