Oab exchange 2016 not updating

Full OAB download threshold To modify the threshold at which Outlook will download the full OAB rather than the incremental update, you can set the following Registry value Key: As the value, set at which relative size a full OAB download should take place rather than an incremental update.

For instance, setting the value to 4 will trigger a full download when the incremental update is larger than one-fourth the size of the full OAB.

Prompt before for full download As the OAB can be quite large in some environments, it could be wise to be prompted when Outlook wants to download the full OAB.

This allows you to abort the update process when you are for instance on a slow or expensive connection.

When you update an Offline Address Book on the Exchange server via the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell, one would suspect that updating the Outlook client after that would directly get you this fully up-to-date copy. After the OAB gets updated on Exchange, it still needs to distributed to the web services first, even in a single server environment.

The process of updating and distributing the OAB is achieved by the following two schedules.

And since this website’s main focus is on Outlook, it makes sense to start with Outlook as well ;-).

Renaming just a single or some of the files will result in an OAB corruption. A benefit of manually deleting the oab-file is that before they are being re-downloaded, you are working with the Online Address Book.

When you find things working correctly for you now but not anymore after the oab-file were redownloaded, you know that the issue is with the oab-files on the server and not on the client or the Address Book configuration in general.

This morning I was asked to update the Global Address List and Offline Address Book in an Exchange environment.

You could wait for Exchange to do it automatically (the default schedule is once a day) but what when you want to force the update to take place right now?

You’ll find the following 6 oab-files in this location which make up the full Offline Address Book: If you are still using Outlook 2002/XP or previous, the file names won’t have a “u” in front of their name.
