  • OAL Error Cause Exchange to HANG

    Dear all,

    I have this error under my event viewer & my users complained that they are UNABLE to access their email. PLs kindly advise. Thanks.

    Event Type: Warning
    Event Source: MSExchangeSA
    Event Category: OAL Generator
    Event ID: 9116
    Date: 27.02.2007
    Time: 15:20:03
    User: N/A
    Computer: SRVMAIL01
    OALGen encountered an error while generating the binpatch.oab file for differential downloads of address list '\Global Address List'. Clients will not be able to incrementally update to the new version of the offline address list, they will perform a full download instead. This is normal if this is the first time this offline address list has been generated. Check other logged events to see if this is a serious error.

    That error should not have caused users to stop getting email or any other issues with Exchange. It simply means there is an issue with OAB generation. Have you tried forcing the OAB to update?
    If you are unable to get in to Exchange then it will be something else - are the services running? Anything else in the event logs?
