The generation server mentioned in the creation of a new offline address book is used to handle the creation and update process of the off-line address book. This happens before they are placed on the share.
To move the offline address book generation server, click on the “Mailbox” node within the Organization Configuration Work center and select the off-line address book to alter from the “Offline Address Book” tab. From there, click on the “Move…” option that appears under the Actions panel, which will launch the “Move Offline Address Book” wizard. Another option, “Set as Default” is used in the event that changing the default offline address book is desired – though not something that you would do often.
An administrator can also select “Properties” in order to modify various offline address book properties such as the update schedule, options that were selected in the course of creating the offline address book, and the distribution method. In the event that existing Outlook clients have been upgraded to Outlook 2007, enabling “Web-based distribution” in the “Distribution” tab will provide the virtual directory where it can be distributed from. Doing so will make it possible to move off the public folder structure.
