Now playing: Fall Out Boy - Sugar, We're Goin Down

I have run in to problems with the Offline Address Book an amazing number of times; and more often than not, on brand-new Exchange 2003 installs. Some of the common fixes, like rebuilding the OAB or deleting it and creating a new one, don't often work. The Outlook 2003 client is stuck with the infamous 0x8004010F error.

After reading this article at I downloaded the mentioned OABInteg utility and had my problem fixed in about 5 minutes. This is the syntax I used:

oabinteg /s:<servername> /t:oabfldcheck >c:\oab.txt

I pipe the results to a text file so I can peruse them at my leisure and compare successive tests. The test is even so kind to suggest the correct course of action to fix the errors it finds. Nifty! Hint: the Outlook profile you have on the testing workstation cannot be one using Cached Mode, so disable it while you run the utility.
