GAL/OAB Inconsistency - 1.Sep.2004 1:06:00 PM

Running Exch2000 SP4, we have multiple GALs and multiple OABs:
OAB1 (Contains GAL1) and OAB2 (Contains GAL2)

From my standard user (non-administrative) account, I receive the GAL1. However, when I set Outlook 2003 to cached exchange mode, and download the OAB, I get OAB2, which does not correspond to the GAL I have. Furthermore, the OAB (and the GAL that it includes) that I do receive are both objects that I have no permissions set on.

Deleting all .oab files in my personal directory resolves the problem, until I download the address book again.

Default OAB for my mailbox store is OAB1. I have tried rebuilding all objects in question, to no effect.

I'm not sure whether it has any relevance, but this also seemed a little strange. The Public Folders for all OABs except OAB1 recorded their size as 0, and having 0 total items. The Public Folder Instances were the same - and yet OAB2 is the only one being displayed.

Absolutely no idea what's causing this, so any help would be much appreciated
