CRM 4.0 Outlook client on XP SP2 latest updates.  CRM 4.0 client with Rollup 4.

Goto tool bar CRM
    Syncronize with CRM

Then get error:

A SQL Server error occurred. Try this action again. If the problem continues....

Will not sync so any task or calendar items created in outlook do not go into crm.

Please assist.

Microsoft can't figure it out so I figure you guys are smarter anyway.

Are you using the CRM client with offline access?  If so, please check that the local SQL server service on the XP computer is started.

Alternatively it may be quicker to uninstall the CRM client and then reinstall.

A few more questions:
- Has CRM for Outlook ever worked for a user on this computer?
- Did you upgrade from 3.0 in the past?
- Do other aspects of CRM work within Outlook. Is it just the synchronization that fails?
- Has the user ever used CRM for Outlook on another computer?

In the mscrmconfig db in the deployment properties table check the url is correct on the following:

ADSdkRootDomain
ADWebApplicationRootDomain
AsyncSdkRootDomain

This may help as one of them is normally empty.

Cheers

Wouldn't the mscrmconfig entries only be relevant if crm can't be configured for outlook in the first instance?

Ok, I figured it out.  Sorry you guys were not on the right track and I just made an educated guess here.  I backed up all the tables and then deleted all the entries in all the sync tables and then reinstalled the plugin for outlook on all stations.
