Consider the following scenario. You are running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 in an organization. In the Exchange Management Console, you try to create a new Offline Address Book (OAB). When you try to create the new OAB, you click to select the Include the default Global Address List check box. In this scenario, when you click Next to go to the next step, you receive the following error message:
Additionally, you receive the error message that is mentioned in this section in the following scenario. You open the properties of any existing OAB. On the Address Lists tab, you enable the Include the Default Global Address List option, and then you try to accept the change.
Default Global Address Book is not found, please uncheck ‘Include the Default Global Address List’.
This problem occurs because there is no address list in the Exchange organization that is recognized as the default global address list. Although you have an address list that has the correct name, "Default Global Address List," the address list type may have been changed, and the address list is no longer the default global address list. The value of the msExchRecipientFilterFlags attribute in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) and in Active Directory directory service controls whether the address list can be used as the default global address list.
To resolve this problem, verify and change the value of the msExchRecipientFilterFlags attribute of the default global address list to "3." To change this value, use the Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI) Edit snap-in. To do this, follow these steps.
Note ADSI Edit is included with the Windows Server 2003 Support Tools. To install the Windows Server 2003 Support Tools, double-click Suptools.msi in the Support\Tools folder on the Windows Server 2003 CD.
