New to this Enterprise. NOT an Exchange Admin. They're deploying new PC's and when the PC Techs open Outlook to setup the mail account we've noticed that the default location for the .OST is pointing to the user's network storage location rather than the local PC.

Where is this change made in Exchange management so that the next 1000 users don't have the .OST placed on the File Server.

Thanks!
Bill

Hi Bill,
Check your group policies as this is not an Exchange setting.

On mine it's
Microsoft Office Outlook 2007->Miscellanious->PST settings
the option is Default location for OST and PST files.

"By default, PST and OST files are located in: %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook. You can use this setting to specify a different folder location for PST and OST files. The setting ''Default location for OST files'' can be used to provide a new location specific to OST files, overriding this setting (for OST files only)."

Yes, I know how to change it manually on each client. The problem is that Outlook, when left to automatically setup, is placing the .OST on a Network Share.

What I gave you was the location in the group Policy where you can set the location.
You need to open the group policy editor, under User Administration-> Administrative templates and then follow my path from their.

Oh, sorry. Read through that too fast. Under User Administration-> Administrative templates, there is no Microsoft Office Outlook 2007.

It can be named differently - you will need to hunt around for it. If it's not there then somebody must have made the change another way such as a regkey import on login (I'm guessing as I know nothing about your system).
