Downloading offline address book fails

January 31, 2012

Problem: OAB download fails with Outlook 2007 clients on Exchange 2010 server.
When you try to manually download the OAB, this tasks hangs and hangs…. no error, just hanging.

I noticed that in the rootfolder for the OAB ( C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Exchange\OAB ) there was no folder with the guid of the OAB.
Well, if there’s nothing to download…?
I restarted the MSExchangeFileDistribution service and the Background Intelligent Transfer Service and the Guid was regenerated under the OAB folder in IIS.


“Error 25007 unable to update xml configuration file” when installing vcenter update manager

The above error occured to me when trying to install vCenter Update Manager 4.1 on a vCenter 4.1 Server.
Turned out that the problem was that the password of the account i entered for credentials had a semicolon in it (the ; sign )
Appearantly this is a problem for installing…
So i retried the installation using a different account and voila.
