Note This issue may also occur if you incorrectly set the filter on other address lists that are listed under All Address Lists in Exchange System Manager. If the default filter has to be modified, make sure that you base your LDAP queries on attributes that exist before the Recipient Update Service tries to update the objects.
To resolve this issue, start Exchange System Manager, open the default Global Address List properties, and then make sure that the Search filter is correct. The filter should look like the following filter:
- Start ADSI Edit from Windows 2000 Support Tools.
- Expand the Configuration container.
- Expand CN=Configuration.
- Expand CN=Services.
- Expand CN=Microsoft Exchange.
- Expand CN=Exchange Organization Name.
- Expand CN=Address Lists Container.
- Expand CN=All Global Address Lists.
- Right-click CN=Default Global Address List and click Properties.
- Click the purportedSearch attribute in the Select property to view box.
- Paste the following filter in the Edit Attribute box:(& (mailnickname=*) (| (&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(!(homeMDB=*))(!(msExchHomeServerName=*)))(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(|(homeMDB=*)(msExchHomeServerName=*)))(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=contact))(objectCategory=group)(objectCategory=publicFolder) ))
- Click Set, and then click OK.
