  • The OAB generator will connect to the DC using NetBIOS, i.e. XYZ. What you need to do is add the DNS suffixes of both domains to the Exchange server in the proper order, that is top first (root.local), children next (mydom.xyz.com). It then should be able to contact the DC to generate the OAB. To force an update instead of waiting for the generation cycle, use the cmdlet update-offlineaddressbook.

  • Hello,

     

    Here is the meaning of the 0x80040115:

    err 80040115
    # for hex 0x80040115 / decimal -2147221227
    MAPI_E_NETWORK_ERROR mapicode.h

     

    Firstly, I would like to share with you the following blog:

     

    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dgoldman/archive/2007/11/15/oab-generation-fails-to-generate-with-errors-9330-and-9334.aspx

     

    I’d like to ask how often do these error event ID generated? Does it always indicate one problematic DC “DCS2”?

     

    You can send the application log to the following address for further research:

    Thanks,
