OAL Generator Issues, require OABValidate tool RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I am experiencing problems with our OAL Generator and from my understanding I require the OABValidate.exe tool. Is this available publicly now or only available after logging an incident / support case?

    Microsoft have made a mess of our subscription renewal so I don't have our current SA reference number, so can't log a case!

    Cheers

    David

  • This tool is only available from PSS, and anyone else distributing it is breaking the Microsoft licence agreement. SO you need to raise a PSS call with MS ASAP :)

    See if Dave Goldman's OABInteg might help.

  • Hi David,

     

    The tool is not allowed to download from the FTP site. As Rich mentioned, there is other one similar tool like oabinteg could be used when we troubleshoot the OAB issue. If you want to use oabvalidate.exe, I’m afraid that you have to open a ticket.

     

    Thanks.

  • Thanks Anil, as I mentioned above MS have screwed up our Enterprise agreement so I'm unable to log a case. I'll check out Rich's recommendation below.

     

    Regards

  • Thanks for the advice Novak, much appreciated - although I would recommend that a utility with the same functionality be bundled with Exchange in the first place.
