Exchange Server - Cannot Generate Offline Address Book (OAB) error 8004010e

Description:
Exchange server cannot generate offline address book. Newly created email address doesn’t appear at the Global Address List. At the event viewer you see error logged with event id 9338, 9330, and 9126. You’ve try changing the server generating OAB to other, but the same error occurs.

Resolution:
The most common reason for failure to generate the OAB with error 8004010e is a mangled attribute in Active Directory.
Use Nspitool.exe to identify which user has the mangled attribute.

1. Save and unzip the attachment to your Exchange server.
2. Click Start, click Run, type in cmd and click Ok.
3. Navigate the directory which you save the nspitool.exe in and run the following command: nspitool -WalkAddressList >c:\nspioutput.txt
You should see something like “QueryRows failed 0x8004010e on entry personname, WalkAddressList ended with 0x8004010e” on the output text.
Next step is to use adsiedit.msc to connect to GC partition to check the attribute value. Go to the user properties and check the manager attribute value. Is it the same with the Active Directory User and Computer (ADUC) version? If not, change the value at ADUC to something else, wait for the replication to occur, and change it back to the correct value.

The attribute value shown through ADUC and through adsiedit.msc should have the same result.
Run the nspitool.exe again and do the necessary fix until there’s no “queryrows” error anymore.

Can you let me know where I can find nspitool.exe without having to call MS PSS? I have this exact problem on Exchange 2003.

Hi,
I am having this exact issue after upgrading to exchange 2010. I have reviewed every record manually (hours and hours of work) but I cannot find any malformed or incorrect records. Would I be able to get a copy of the Nspitool.exe tool? I cant find any reference anywhere on the internet for acquiring this outside of Microsoft and we're desperate for a solution asap! Thanks!

MS Exchange is the very complicated and interesting software. But sometimes it works incorrectly. In such cases the special tools must help. One of the best programs is the next to my mind. It worked out some my problems and would overcome with almost every trouble - recover exchange ost file.
