I was wondering if you all could help me solve and issue I'm having with the Companyweb calendar and Outlook 2010. Let me explain what I've done to give you head start, big picture.
Both servers are running SBS 2011 Standard.
In an effort to become more efficient (yeah, right), I added the companyweb calendar to Outlook 2010 via the following method. While NOT on the domain where I am connecting the sharepoint calendar, I:
clicked our Internal Website
typed in my username and password (why? since I've already signed just one step ago)
clicked on Calendar to the left
clicked on Calendar at the top under Calendar Tools
clicked Connect to Outlook
clicked No when asked about viewing only secure content (another annoyance)
entered my username and password AGAIN
Wahlah...it appears in Outlook under Other Calendars/Companyweb - Calendar
Now, that's just to connect to my workplace calendar that I'm interested in. I am not interested in connecting to the calendar on my home server also running SBS 2011 Standard (I think also called SBS Standard 2008 R2); we'll get to that in a sec.
Everything works fine until I close Outlook. When I re-open, I have to put in my username and password to BOTH companyweb.homecompany.loc
al (which I don't even want showing) and remote.targetcompany.com. Even when I place a checkmark in remember password, it doesn't.
I know Outlook is looking for http://companyweb
per the error message I receive saying the Sharepoint list Companyweb - Calendar cannot be found. An alternate Web address to this SharePoint site will be attempted. That explains why it looks to my home server's username and password and then to my company's.
The goals is to add the targetcompany calendar to Outlook and not have to type in passwords each time I close and re-open. I don't want Outlook to even try to connect to homecompany.
How do I accomplish this? As I add this feature to my remote users, I don't want them to have to type in a password each time they close and re-open their Outlook. I would rather not have to automatically connect via VPN to accomplish this as well.
