This can cause the “Updating Address Book” status appearing for a long time.
Outlook is helping you complete other activities and does not allow the address book update to interfere.
Step 3: The new version of the GAL will now be downloaded.
This polling interval is 5 minutes by default and can be customized to any value between 5 seconds and 3 hours.Because Step #1 in the process happens by default every minute then any recent changes in AD should already be imported into the SQL database.In Cached Exchange Mode, Outlook 2007 & 2010 downloads a local copy of the Global Address List (GAL), but only updates it every 24 hours.In order to reflect any changes or updates made to the Global Address List, you can force Outlook to download a new copy of the GAL.How do I get the name of the policy in order to delete it?
I created the new OAB and ran the commands you suggested without error, but when I open outlook it still hangs when I try to download a copy of the offline address book.(This could take several minutes) Step 2: Uncheck the box next to Download changes since last Send/Receive.(This could take several minutes) Outlook shows the "Updating Address Book" status for a long time. Outlook has a throttling feature that slows the address book update when you are working in Outlook.cmdlet is run then a ‘synchronize now‘ event is marked and the update is not actually run immediately.The event itself happens the next time abserver looks to see if a sync event has been triggered.I have two Exchange 2016 servers and a single domain controller.
