Pushing GAL updates to Outlook in cached mode - 10.Sep.2008 12:03:31 PM

We have a number of laptops in the organization, and I've noticed that it takes a long time to updated everyone's GAL on their laptops (in cached mode) when I add a new distro group or user.

The current situation, I've created a new distro group, but has yet to show up in my GAL on my laptop (cached mode of course).  It's been about 15 minutes now, and it still does not show up. 

How can I PUSH the updates to the laptops from the server?  And if I can't push it, how long is the default for the GAL to get updated?

Thanks all,
Dave

Or even pulling them from Outlook. 

Why, when I initiate a "Download Address Book" it doesn't pick up the newly added user?

How can I initiate a manual and immediate sync of the OAB either from the server or from the client?

Thanks again.

The only way i am aware of is:

Remove outlook from cached mode

Download Address Book and the new objects should be seen,

return to cached mode...

not the best solution perhaps but the only one i know of.

The problem you are facing is that by default the OAB is updated once per day. So adding a distribution list will show up in Outlook in cached mode the day after (as long as the Outlook client either restarts or a manual download of OAB is done).

You can force the update process if you like: How to Update the Offline Address Book.

Please also remember to have the clients download the updated OAB to view the entries.
