How does Business Contact Manager work with Exchange on SBS 2003?
Posted on 2006-04-22
I must be missing something here. I have SBS 2003 installed and working well, so I decided to add
Business Contact Manager to a desktop and a laptop computer. I have downloaded and installed the
update, on each computer (that allows BCM to work with Exchange on SBS 2003). Only it doesn't.
At least not the way that I would expect it to. I guess my question is...
Exactly HOW is BCM supposed to work in conjunction with SBS 2003?
If I enter a contact record on the desktop, I would think it would be added to Exchange so that when
I open Outlook on the laptop, I would see the same records that I see on the desktop... and vice versa.
(Enter a new contact into the laptop's BCM and when it joins the domain again, Outlook updates the
Exchange BCM database to keep everything sync'd)
It doesn't seem to work that way.
I can enter records on either machine and that is exactly where they stay. They never get sync'd, even
when I hit the F9 key or send/receive manually.
Both machines are in cached mode. I have tried sharing both databases. Permissions seem to be correct.
Mail and the regular contacts database both seem to be updating properly, but not BCM.
What am I missing?
