Updating global address list exchange 2016
I assume it does this by searching for _ldap._loc SVR records in DNS or it does it via AD CAS Auto Discover foo that Im unaware of. Through this post, I found what looks to be the Offline Address Book .plist file here: /Users/isaachalvorson/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.
Im concerned that once my old DCs are phased-out that my Outlook users will no longer be able to do GAL lookups from AD because Outlook will be pointing to stale/deprecated servers. Office/Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles/Main Profile/Caches/1 I tried quitting Outlook, and deleting the OABQuery Info.plist file as advised in that article.
Alternatively, you can wait till after Exchange has updated the OAB on its current schedule.
You do a search of the Global Address List from your smart Phone but you don’t have enough wireless signal.
Can anyone confirm what Outlook does when can't find a Directory Server? Can Outlook's Directory Servers be configured via a script or cli command? After reopening Outlook, the GAL was gone from the address book, so I was hopeful.
I can't find were the Directory data lives (I assume its baked-into a database blob and not a text file or xml .plist). When contact info gets changed in our AD/O365, the Mac Outlook's contact list doesn't update. I tried flushing caches in both:- ~/Library/Containers/com.microsoft. It then re-appeared, but still contains the out of date info! I would think if it cached the GAL, it would download the most recent information.
Microsoft Support has an article on offline address books which may be helpful in this situation..appears you have cached mode turned on (it is by default on the clients) The Outlook Social connector (Free with Outlook 2010/2013) will do what you are asking for.
It scans your contacts and makes updates based on information in the GAL.
It addresses business continuity, emergency preparedness, DR, productivity, and employee reachability.
