jcman23 -> How to View users oab properties?? (20.Jun.2011 9:02:23 AM)

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?




travis.sheldon -> RE: How to View users oab properties?? (21.Jun.2011 12:41:45 PM)

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.




jcman23 -> RE: How to View users oab properties?? (22.Jun.2011 8:38:14 AM)

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




travis.sheldon -> RE: How to View users oab properties?? (22.Jun.2011 9:24:16 AM)

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




jcman23 -> RE: How to View users oab properties?? (23.Jun.2011 6:49:43 PM)

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

I think you’ve 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




jcman23 -> RE: How to View users oab properties?? (26.Jun.2011 12:47:58 PM)

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.




travis.sheldon -> RE: How to View users oab properties?? (27.Jun.2011 9:33:15 AM)

You've got it ;)




jcman23 -> RE: How to View users oab properties?? (28.Jun.2011 8:50:20 AM)

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.




travis.sheldon -> RE: How to View users oab properties?? (28.Jun.2011 9:56:23 AM)

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"




jcman23 -> RE: How to View users oab properties?? (28.Jun.2011 1:57:55 PM)

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

I have no opinion.




kellenlee -> RE: How to View users oab properties?? (11.Aug.2011 1:56:12 AM)

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