I'm having an issue with Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010.
Essentially, the issue is the GAL is not updating in Outlook. Every other address list updates (i.e. All Users, All Rooms, etc).
This problem started after we flattened our domain. Essentially we went from sub.domain.net and domain.net to solely domain.net. We migrated all the users from the the sub to the top using the ADMT and then we took down sub.domain.net.
I looked at the recipient filter of the GAL, it's below for reference:
(Alias -ne $null -and (ObjectClass -eq 'user' -or ObjectClass -eq 'contact' –or ObjectClass -eq 'msExchSystemMailbox' -or ObjectClass –eq 'msExchDynamicDistributionList' -or ObjectClass -eq 'group' -or ObjectClass –eq 'publicFolder'))
The next thing I'm going to try is creating a new GAL and making it the default, if necessary. We have another server in the wings waiting to be deployed, but we need to address the problem in the meantime.
I'm wondering if anyone has anyone has any tips that could help me address this issue.
Here are some things that I've tried that haven't worked:
Update-FileDistributionService -Identity Exchange -Type OAB
Update-GlobalAddressList -Identity "Default Global Address List"
Get-OfflineAddressBook | Update-OfflineAddressBook
I created an alternative OAB, connected it to the Default GAL, made that OAB the defualt OAB, and tried to download it through Outlook.
Restarted the Exchange Service Attendant service.
Restarted the server.
