How to manually and immediately obtain a copy of OCS galcontacts.db RRS feed

  • Question

  • In OCS R2, theoretically saying that it will obtain the galcontacts.db every 15 min by default.
    However, it seems not that true in practical.
    The time for retreiving the file is different and deviate a lot, e.g. 2-3 hours.

    When demo to user is needed, it will be embarrassing in such case.

    So, i would like to ask if there is any method can be used to get an updated copy of galcontacts.db.
    p.s.: Editing the RegKey is not the choice in my case.

    Thanks~~~

  • You can follow this process to force a manual download: http://blogs.pointbridge.com/Blogs/schertz_jeff/Pages/Post.aspx?_ID=17

    But the interval change in the latest OC update can't be altered without editing the registry; that is the only way to change the new default behavior.
