This is exchange 2007 SP1 (still has it’s quirks), running on Server 2003 R2 X64 Edition Service Pack 2

 

I honestly don’t see where it’s generation Offline Address Book Version 3…only 4.

 

Maybe It’s time to see why? =)

What version of server is hosting the OABs?

 

Are you generating a v3 and a v4 OAB?

 

Is Office 2003 patched to current?

With me being the only exception, everyone else is unable to see a current version of our global address book.

 

I made a new forward lookup zone in my DNS settings so that when Exchange searches for Autodiscover.<mydomain> it goes directly back to the mail server and that portion works. But I am still the only user that has an up-to-date GAL (Global Address List) everyone else is months behind. This should have fixed our office 2007 users as they don’t access or *shouldn’t* access the GAL the same as office 2003 users.

 

What am I missing here and why I am the only one that’s able to see this? Should I start dissecting my permissions?

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated as this is annoying me and I have people calling me and asking me if they’re getting canned soon because they can’t be seen in the GAL (stupid, I KNOW, but it’s still something I have to deal with)

 

Happy Holidays,
