There is an AD exchange atrtribute "msexchuseoab". Is there a way to view this for a user in powershell. I have tried get-user, get-aduser, get-mailbox. Unsuccessful however. Any ideas?

It's returned from the Get-Mailbox command as "OfflineAddressBook"

It doesn't show the distinguished name, rather, it looks up the Display name of the OAB by DN.

So would you type: get-mailbox user@address | FL OfflineAddressBook? I'm wanting to see the properties of this attribute on the user? Thanks.

Correct, and when you set the address book, you do it by name and not DN of the OAB

What do you mean by name? I thought that this is set by the dn value in ad? Cheers

I think youíve made some truly interesting points. Not too many people would actually think about this the way you just did. I am really impressed that there is so much information about this subject that have been uncovered and you did it so well, with so much class. Thanks.

If you view the users properties in active directory the msexchangeuseoab property will show the distinguished name. If you use exchange shell to set the offlineaddressbook for a user itlll take the display name of the oab and look up the oab dn

OK so MsExchUseOAB is showing its dn or path of where its located in AD and offlineaddressbook queries the display name of this same object?

Cheers.

Wonderful thank you. Got one more question for this. Based on this article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997667(EXCHG.80).aspx, the msexchuseoab is st on a server level? How does this property get set on the user?

Cheers.

By default each user will use the "Default Offline Address Book" unless you specify otherwise.

AFAIK you can only set the OAB via EMS or ADSI

Set-Mailbox "Username" -OfflineAddressBook "domain.com OAB"

Ok so if I have it right. changing the oab will modify the value of MSExchuseoab? Thank you very much. Cheers.

when you set the address book, you do it by name and not DN of the OAB
