You can use the EMC or the Shell to update an offline address book (OAB). After you create an OAB or modify OAB settings, the changes aren't available to users until the OAB generation (OABGen) process has completed.

For information about how to create OABs, see Create an Offline Address Book.

Looking for other management tasks related to OABs? Check out Managing Offline Address Books.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Offline address books" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  1. In the console tree, navigate to Organization Configuration > Mailbox.

  2. In the result pane, click the Offline Address Book tab, and then click the OAB that you want to update.

  3. In the action pane, click Update.

  4. A warning appears. Click Yes to update the OAB.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Offline address books" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

To update an OAB, use the following syntax.

Update-OfflineAddressBook -Identity <OfflineAddressBookIdParameter>

This example updates the OAB named My OAB.

Update-OfflineAddressBook -Identity "My OAB"

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Update-OfflineAddressBook.
