create a profile on your desktop / laptop and connect it there... physically connecting an iphone to the exchange server is a very bad idea...

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Hi,

I believe you are using ActiveSync to sync wirelessly. If so then check the application logs on the Exchange server for any errors and also see what is the error on the Mobile Device? IS the Exchange server 2003 or 2007? Do we have a single Exchange server scenario or Multiple Exchange servers? Please help me with the above informations

Just to get you started try to sync each thing individually, I mean just select contacts and try to sync. Select Emails and uncheck contacts and then sync and so on. This would give us an Idea if it is something related to connectivity or Mailbox?

Check if the user you are trying for has any large attachments in the Inbox. Why I am saying this is because ActiveSync works wirelessly using the Airsync protocol so it is will have problems with the downloading of the attachments.

+ If you find any large attachments trying moving them to the any other Folder.
+ Try creating a new test user in AD with Mailbox & send a couple of Emails to that user. Try to download those emails using activesync using the same phone.

I did fix the problem adding a new user without emails, contacts or calendar, but still dosen´t fix the problem about the processor going crazy... I think it has something to do with the permissions and rights of the users...
