What version of server is hosting the OABs?


Are you generating a v3 and a v4 OAB?


Is Office 2003 patched to current?

Subject: [ExchangeList] Exchange 2007 is not updating GAL of Office 2003 or
2007 Users


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,
