  • OAB and Outlook Anywhere

    Hi,

    Can someone help me out with this issue Im running exch 2003 sp2 and enabled outlook anywhere (HTTP/RPC). Now what happens is that when cached mode is enabled users are downloading oure full GAL to OAB i have pointed in ESM the default OAB to a empyt Address list. did not help also edited MSExchUSeOAB to the right OAB did not help. It keeps downloading the whole GAL how can I prevent this!


    Tnx!!

    What are you trying to do?
    You can't have two GALs for the same user, depending on whether they are on RPC over HTTPS or not. The GAL is the GAL. Without access to the GAL you will find working with Outlook very difficult.

        It would help if you posted that information.
        Have you blocked access to the default GAL?
        Does it work outside RPC over HTTPS correctly? I mean in cached mode?
        The fact that you are using RPC over HTTPS should not make any difference, as long as the GAL and OAB relationships are configured correctly.
        Although what you are doing is no longer supported by Microsoft.

          Hi Sembee tnx for helping.


          Each company haves his own GAL when yhey logon through terminal server they can start outlook and see there own GAL . When they connect with outlook anywhere they can download the full GAL of all companys major issue!

          In ESM ive set Default OAB to 1 GAL shouldnt it be showing that GAL then?

            In my opinion different organisations should get their own MS Exchange systems. Exchange was designed to work with one organisation.

              Alas there are many IT Consultancy companies who see what prices are charged for hosted Exchange and then do it themselves for their clients, except they do not do it correctly and are in an unsupported scenario.

              In this particular case, it sounds like the GAL segregation hasn't been done correctly - it has only been done for the live GAL (as there is no cached mode in terminal services) with no work done on how the OAB needs to be handled.
              Unfortunately the articles at Microsoft on how to do GAL segregation have been removed because Microsoft no longer support it being carried out on Exchange 2003 without the use of their hosting platform.
              If you have followed instructions on how to set up address list segregation then you need to look at those again on how the OAB should be handled.
