Join Windows 7 Pro / Office 2010 Machine to SBS 2003

I am trying to connect a new Sony VAIO laptop to our SBS2003 Server.

Laptop specs:
* Windows 7 Pro
* Office 2010 Pro

In SBS2003, I "Add New Computer". I then use http://SERVERNAME/ConnectComputer on the new laptop.

The script runs fine. At the end, I can access all domain resources (server folders, printers, Company Web, etc).

When I open Outlook, it does not have the Exchange2003 profile. Outlook opens like it is a new installation.

Other notes that may have some relevance:

I chose Connection Manager for remote access, but it does not show the "Shortcut to Connect to Small Business Server" like all other laptops do.

A few weeks ago, I connected a new desktop to the SBS2003 with Win7 Pro / Office 2007 Pro and everything worked fine.
