After you create an OAB or modify OAB settings, the changes aren't available to users until the OAB generation (OABGen) process has completed.

For additional management tasks related to OABs, see Offline Address Book Procedures.

What do you need to know before you begin?

  • Estimated time to complete each procedure: 5 minutes.

  • You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure or procedures. To see what permissions you need, see the "Offline address books" entry in the Email Address and Address Book Permissions topic.

  • You can’t use the Exchange Administration Center (EAC) to perform this procedure. You must use the Shell.
