  • Outlook errors on Send and Receive to local Exchange server (Site1)

    Hi,

    I have two sites connected via VPN. Both sites run indepentantly, both sites have a DC, Exchange server and both are GC's.

    When you send and receive on site 1 to the Exchange server on site1 it tried to connect to the site2 exchange server via RCP (port 135) and errors with the message:

    Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server' reported error (0x8004010F) : 'The operation failed. An object could not be found.'

    All emails are sent and received fine, but that error pops up. Once the connection between sites is restored, the error goes away.

    Why are the clients on Site1 trying to connect to the server at Site2?

    Thanks.

    PaulG.

    Site1: Windows 2003 R2 Std, Exchange 2003 Std SP2
    Site2: Windows 2003 SBS R2, Exhcange 2003 Std SP2

      On the same server. Both servers are GC's and Exchange is running on the servers.

      Thanks, PaulG.

        I guess the SBS was the first exchange server within your organistation?

          Yeah sorry,

          Site2 is SBS 2003 Std and was the first DC in the domain, then added additional DC (at Site1 - Windows 2003 Std) made it a global catalog, then installed Exchange on the Additional DC.

          Thanks, PaulG.

            This error message indicates that MS Outlook was not able to find and download the offline Address Book. This because your OAB is stored (homed) on your first exchange server.

              Have you replicated your public and system folders to the other machine?
              If not then that is the cause of the problem. The sync log will show you what element it is failing on. As already pointed out, the usual cause is the lack of Offline Address Book.

                  Thanks Sembee,

                  After reading more and re-reading your question I better understand the problem. Moving the Default Offline Address List to Site1 also changed that for the Site2 settings! and did not fix the issue!

                  On the SBS server (Site2) under Public Folder Instances there are the following items

                  OAB Version 2
                  OAB Version 3a
                  OAB Version 4
                  Offline Address Book - /o=<snip>/cn=addrlists/cn=oabs/cn=Default Offline Address List
                  Offline Address Book - first administrative group

                  The last two are showing a size of 0KB and all five dont have the Site1 Server name in the Replication tab. Do I need to make these replicated, or just a select few?

                  Thanks.

                  PaulG.

                    You don't MOVE the content anywhere. You need to replicate it. Change the replica settings so that both servers are listed, for all sub folders under OAB.

                      Excellent, I replicated the 5 folders and send and receive is like lightening, everytime.

                      Thanks Sembee.
