Use the Set-OfflineAddressBook cmdlet to modify offline address book (OAB) settings.


Set-OfflineAddressBook -Identity <OfflineAddressBookIdParameter> [-AddressLists <AddressBookBaseIdParameter[]>] [-ApplyMandatoryProperties <SwitchParameter>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DiffRetentionPeriod <Nullable>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-IsDefault <$true | $false>] [-Name <String>] [-PublicFolderDistributionEnabled <$true | $false>] [-Schedule <Schedule>] [-Versions <Collection>] [-VirtualDirectories <VirtualDirectoryIdParameter[]>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]


Set-OfflineAddressBook [-AddressLists <AddressBookBaseIdParameter[]>] [-ApplyMandatoryProperties <SwitchParameter>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DiffRetentionPeriod <Nullable>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Instance <OfflineAddressBook>] [-IsDefault <$true | $false>] [-Name <String>] [-PublicFolderDistributionEnabled <$true | $false>] [-Schedule <Schedule>] [-Versions <Collection>] [-VirtualDirectories <VirtualDirectoryIdParameter[]>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The Set-OfflineAddressBook cmdlet modifies the settings of an existing OAB. An OAB is invaluable for users who spend a considerable amount of time disconnected from the network. An OAB is a snapshot of one or more address lists, which MAPI clients can download to provide access to the address lists while offline.

The generation of an OAB does not stop even if more time is required than specified in the Schedule parameter.

To run the Set-OfflineAddressBook cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Organization Administrator role

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.OfflineAddressBookIdParameter

Use the Identity parameter to specify the GUID, distinguished name, or OAB name that represents a specific OAB. You can also include the path by using the format Server\OfflineAddressBookName.

You can omit the parameter label Identity so that only the OAB name or GUID is supplied.

AddressLists

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.AddressBookBaseIdParameter[]

The AddressLists parameter specifies an array of address list identities that are included in the OAB.

ApplyMandatoryProperties

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Creating an Exchange 2007 OAB through the Exchange Server 2003 Exchange System Manager is not supported. If an Exchange 2007 OAB is created with this tool, it will be identified as a legacy OAB, even though it resides on an Exchange 2007 server. Use the ApplyMandatoryProperties parameter to modify the mandatory properties of an OAB in this state to correct the problem.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You do not have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter.

DiffRetentionPeriod

Optional

System.Nullable

The DiffRetentionPeriod parameter specifies the length of time, in days, that the OAB difference files are retained on the OAB-generating server and the Client Access server. To retain the OAB difference files indefinitely, use the value Unlimited.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

To specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from the Active Directory directory service, include the DomainController parameter in the command.

Instance

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Directory.SystemConfiguration.OfflineAddressBook

The Instance parameter enables you to pass an entire object to the command to be processed. It is mainly used in scripts where an entire object must be passed to the command.

IsDefault

Optional

System.Boolean

The IsDefault parameter sets this OAB as the default OAB for all new mailbox stores.

Name

Optional

System.String

The Name parameter sets the new name of the OAB. The name appears in the Exchange Management Console. A Name parameter value can include up to 64 characters.

PublicFolderDistributionEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

Setting the PublicFolderDistributionEnabled parameter to a value of $true sets the OAB to be distributed via public folders. The default value is $true.

Schedule

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Schedule

The Schedule parameter specifies the interval scheduled for generating the OAB.

The Schedule parameter takes the following format and must include a range: Weekday.Hour:Minute[AM/PM]-Weekday.Hour:Minute[AM/PM].

Versions

Optional

System.Collections.ObjectModel.Collection

The Versions parameter specifies the OAB versions that are generated for client download. The available options are Version4, Version3, and Version2. Version4 is for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 or Office Outlook 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2) clients. Version3 is for Outlook clients that support Unicode. Version2 is for Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, Exchange 2003, Exchange 2000 Server, and Exchange Server version 5.5 clients.

VirtualDirectories

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.VirtualDirectoryIdParameter[]

The VirtualDirectories parameter specifies the array of OABVirtualDirectory objects. If the VirtualDirectories parameter is specified, Version4 of the OAB must be generated.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You do not have to specify a value with the WhatIf parameter.

 

Error Description
