Hi,
I was wondering if there is a way, from the server side, to see which users are connected using "cache mode" and which users are connected using "online" mode to my Exchange 2003 server. Maybe if there is a way it will even be possible to see what client / version they are using?
Thanks!

I believe that doesn't show whether they connect using caching mode or online mode?

How would you view this in Exchange 2007 with the Exchange Management Console?

No you cannot see whether they are using cache mode or not. However if all the clients are members of the domain, i should imagine that it would not be too difficult to run a script at logon to look at the registry and report to a log file the results. I would do this with AutoIT but i am sure that there are some VBS guru's out there that could do it that way.

alternativly, do you really want to know what they are set to? or do you just want to ensure that everyone is using cached mode? if so then you could do it with the following

this could be implemented via a logon script, although my preference would be to use GPO. as the problem with logon script is that the registry key will apply to any computer that the user logs onto. While this may seem good, if you have terminal servers then you do not want to use cached mode on a terminal server. GPO's you could apply it directly to the workstations.

Hope that helps.

Cheers
