"Empower your knowledge"

Action ‘Update’ could not be performed on object ‘Default Offline Address List’

I attempted to use the ‘update’ OAB function in the Exchange 2010 Management Console. Basically you can look at all your OABs

and select the one you want (we only have one), right click and select ‘update’.

When I did this it threw back this error:
————————–———-———-———- Microsoft Exchange Error ————————–———-———-———-

Action ‘Update’ could not be performed on object ‘Default Offline Address Book’.

Default Offline Address Book Failed Error: Couldn’t find database “DOMAINNAME.local/Configuration/Deleted Objects/Public Folder Store (OLD EXCHANGE 2003 SERVER) DEL:ec77c3ad-4128-46d6-9bc0-176b67d717bc”. Make sure you have typed it correctly.

————————–———-———-———- OK ————————–———-———-————————-———-

To fix this:

a) Open Adsiedit.msc

b) Browse to Configuration, Services, Microsoft Exchange, , Address List Container, Offline Address Lists

c) Open properties of the Default Offline Address List on the right

d) Change siteFolderServer attribute to the DN of the correct Public Folder e.g.

CN=Public Folder Database,CN=Databases,CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),CN=Administrative Groups,CN=MAIL,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=CONTOSO,DC=com
