Relocate BCM database to MSDE on SBS



  • 1. BCM 2007 New Features?
    Does anyone know what the new features will be in BCM 2007. Reading through the threads, it appears that the program is exceptionally buggy in beta. We are trying to decide whether or not to upgrade to BCM 2007 from 2003. At the moment, I am shying away from it, based on what I see (though I do realize it is beta). What we need is a contact manager and scheduler that shows conflict times (ideally). Also, the ability to customize fields easily. Good performance is very important too. If BCM 2007 is not the answer, does anyone have any suggestion? Thank you. Larry
  • 2. I want to sync my Outlook Business Contacts with my Palm
    OK, I don't have a Pocket PC; I have a Palm. Of course, I see nothing on MS to make THAT easy!! Should I wait since I'm going to get the new Treo 700 with W indows in the next Q2006?

Relocate BCM database to MSDE on SBS

Postby montezuma » Tue, 28 Mar 2006 06:47:45 GMT

I want to migrate a BCM database to a new MSDE instance on SBS 2003.
I've created the instance, copied and attached the database files and
also configured TCP/IP and named pipes network connections for this
instance, setting the TCP port to 56183.

I can successfully connect to the database using "osql -E -S
<computername>\microsoftsmlbiz" from a client, but when I try to
connect to the database from the "business tools" menu in Outlook, I
keep getting "No Business Contact Manager for Outlook database could be
found on computer [server]".

Is this a supported configuration? Are there any docs on this this? If
not, any suggstions on how I start troubleshooting? Neither the BCM and
SQL logs reveal anything useful.

2.Running BCM database from a SBS 2003 server

Is it possible to create a BCM database on a client computer then move it to
a main server running SBS 2003 (with or with R2) and get client to connect
to that? I know there is a dull CRM package (MS CRM 3.0) but many of my
clients do not need this full functionality but it would be useful to store
the database in a more central location.

As far as I am aware, BCM uses the MSDE version of SQL. SBS 2003 R2 uses SQL
2005 workgroup edition but I'm sure it still has MSDE install for things
such as SBS Monitoring.

Many thanks for any information
