Outlook 2016 cached mode gal not updating
The easiest thing to do here is to create a new oab, forge generation, assign it to a mailbox database and force downloading of the oab in an outlook client to verify if that worked. In outlook, click on the down arrow next to Send/receive. Note that if asked, you should select to download the entire address book and not just the changes. In the action pane select the New offline address book 4.
Alternatively you can increate logging on the MSEXCHANGESA\OAL Generator to see if the new address book generated successfully. Give the OAB a name, select a generation server (in case of a CCR this needs to be the active node) 5. When presented with the distribution points page enable the web base distribution and, in case of outlook 2003 clients, enable the public folder distribution. Once the wizard has completed, right click the new OAB and select to generate the OAB. Now drill down to the mailbox database, right click it and set the new OAB to be the default for that database. Open outlook with a mailbox that is residing in that mailbox database 10.
(This could take several minutes) Outlook shows the "Updating Address Book" status for a long time. Outlook has a throttling feature that slows the address book update when you are working in Outlook.
This can cause the “Updating Address Book” status appearing for a long time.
So log in to OWA and test if you can see the new users there.Another way to make sure that you get a fresh copy of the OAB is by renaming the oab-files to when Outlook is closed.They are stored in the following location: which itself holds subfolders with named after Account GUIDs.A status window will open to indicate that the download is in progress and will close automatically when the download is complete.(This could take several minutes) Step 2: Uncheck the box next to Download changes since last Send/Receive.
