Issues with AD integration. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    MOC and OCS are working fine, but I cannot see anyone in my contact list except the ones in my Outlook Contacts and All Groups (distribution groups in the AD), when I start to type in their e-mail address in the field. How can I fix that?

    Have you tried regenerating the address book manually with abserver.exe -regenUR and abserver.exe -SyncNow?  You would run these commands on your address book server (prob your FE server) and then delete GALcontacts.db on the clients and restart Communicator.  Seems to fix contact list issues like yours most of the time.

  • If your user's SIP addresses are different than ther email addresses, try typing in a complete SIP addresses as a test.


    To locate and verify the client's local galcontacts.db you can walk through the steps I've outlined here: http://blogs.pointbridge.com/Blogs/schertz_jeff/Pages/Post.aspx?_ID=17

  • Steven >> Actually, the problem was solved during the night, when the server launched the commands you give me. But now that I know them, I don't have to wait until the night anymore! Thanks.


    Jeff >> sip addresses and e-mail addresses are the same, and when I was typing the complete address, I was able to chat with the user. Thanks for your link. Do you know how often the user galcontact.db is updtated?

  • At 1:30AM every day, by default.  The time can be changed, but not the frequency.

  • Ok, I've seen the default time in OCS mmc. And MOC updates his address book as soon as it connects?
