Once you are confronted with forcing an OAB update you have to concern several steps:

Exchange
First step – doing the update

  • get-addresslist | update-addresslist
  • get-globaladdresslist | update-globaladdresslist
  • get-offlineaddressbook | update-offlineaddressbook

Second step – wait a few minutes – push the update through FDS

  • get-clientaccesserver | update-filedistributionservice

Outlook

Perform a full download of the OAB.

In some cases you are forced to hard-remove public folders from Exchange. You can use ADSI Edit to delete these folders.

Exchange 2010

Open ADSI-Edit and got to configuration

Navigate to this path:

CN=Configuration,DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL
CN=Services
CN=Microsoft Exchange
CN=EXCHANGE_ORG
CN=Administrative Groups
CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)
CN=Databases
CN=PUBLIC_FOLDER_DATABASE

Now you can delete the PF-Database you want to get rid off.

Exchange 2007

Open ADSI-Edit and got to configuration

CN=Servers
CN=SERVERNAME
CN=InformationStore

Now you can delete the PF-Database you want to get rid off.

Exchange 2003
