Question on SCR and Outlook 2003 clients
Posted on 2008-11-03
I am testing SCR in a VM environment. Everything works great except for Outlook 2003 clients trying to connect after a failover to the SCR server. Outlook 2007 works perfectly. With Outlook 2003, I keep getting prompted for a username and password when trying to login or create a new profile. The only way I can get it to work is to create a new profile and put in the IP address of the new server. It then resolves. The thing is, we don't really want to have users to do anything. I did change the DNS record to point to the SCR server but that does no good for Outlook 2003. Has anyone else run across this and if so, what is the best solutions, besides updating the client to 2007. AD does contain the correct information and if I try to connect the same user with Outlook 2007 it works.Also, the original server is not online when I am doing this. I am trying to simulate a disaster. Is this why Outlook 2003 won;t work correctly?
