Symptoms

Configure OAB Web Distribution settings for OAB service #XXX task fails with the following output:

An OAB must be associated with the organization in order to configure WEB distribution for OAB

Cause

Offline Address Book of this organization does not exist:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-OfflineAddressBook -Identity "S00XXXXXXX OAL"
The operation couldn't be performed because object 'S00XXXXXXX OAL' couldn't be found on 'EXSERVER01.exchange.local'.

Resolution

  1. Recreate OAB for this organization:

    new-OfflineAddressBook -Name 'S00XXXXXXX OAL' -Server 'EXSERVER01' -AddressLists '\S00XXXXXXX AL' -PublicFolderDistributionEnabled $true
    
  2. Recreate OAB's OWKO GUID using the following articles:

    #10014 How to get OWKO of Active Directory object

    #10015 How to edit OWKO of AD object: add/remove data by MPS or WPE call

  3. Restart the task.

Note: it may be also required to recreate AL and GAL using the commands like:

New-AddressList -Name 'S00XXXXXXX AL' -IncludedRecipients 'AllRecipients' -ConditionalCustomAttributeXX 'S00XXXXXXX' -Container '\' -DisplayName 'S00XXXXXXX AL'

New-GlobalAddressList -Name "S00XXXXXXX GAL" -RecipientFilter {CustomAttributeXX -eq 'S00XXXXXXX' -and Alias -ne $null}

In this case AL's and GAL's OWKO GUIDs must be created as well.
