Terminal Server 2008 and Outlook \ Exchange Cache Mode and Autoconfigure

So I am deploying a new terminal server running server 08, replacing an aging 2003 TS server.  On the server we've installed Office 2010.  On our previous TS server, when a user first logs in and opens outlook, two things happen - cached mode is automatically turned off, and the account\profile automatically configures itself (or with a few clicks of next, but no input by the user).  Cached mode is the real biggie as it tends to cause a bunch of problems here (specifically with the calendar).

So are there some settings I am missing here?

Cheers-
JJ

Previous versions of Outlook did not support cached mode on TS, whereas Outlook 2010 does, so that's why you will see it ticked.

You can configure this two ways:

1) Before Office 2010 install by creating a custom .mst that sets the exchange server and doesn't select the cached exchange mode.

2) After the Office 2010 install by using Group Policy.

Thanks, I've also noted that there is an issue in regard to server auto-discovery in 2010 and exchange 2003.  There's a hotfix that I will be installing for this

I'm looking into GP for excluding cache mode.

Office 2010 comes with tools to preconfigure these setttings. See the link here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179141.aspx

You may need to install these to edit the options from your group policy:
