Running BCM on Terminal Services



  • 1. BCM Reminders repeatedly appearing
    I'm sure this is a simple case of operator error but I've got a reminder box for ALL my BCM contacts which I can't clear. When I click dismiss all the reminders re-appear acouple of seconds later. I can snooze them, but I can't dismiss them. I've tried >run>outlook.exe/cleanreminders which hasn't worked. We're also using OA if that makes a difference. This is driving me mad! TIA

  • 3. Cannot find any BCM databases on the computer
    We have BCM installed on a few different computers in our office and we have been using a shared database successfullly for a few months now. I added a new user profile on one of the computers today and that profile is unable to connect to our shared BCM database. The message is "Cannot find any Business Contact Manager databases on the computer ..." That same computer continues to connect fine to BCM with another user ID. The problem must be related to the user ID somehow but I can't come up with any ideas on what the problem could be. I used the database tool on the server to grant access to this user and no errors were reported. I have gone back into that tool and this user does show up as having access. Next, I verified this new user is a member of the same groups as other members who are able to connect. Finally - I am able to establish a connection with the database instance: sqlcmd -S "tcp:<ourServer>\mssmlbiz,5356" The error message is not suggesting the user cannot connect to the DB - just that once connected no databases of the "BCM type" are found. One other piece of information is that the database is integrated with Microsoft Office Accounting (which puts many tables into that DB). But - if MOA were the root cause I wonder why the other user ID can still connect from the same machine. Any ideas?

Running BCM on Terminal Services

Postby TGVl » Fri, 13 Apr 2007 13:12:00 GMT

We have installed BCM on our terminal server successfully but when we open 
Outlook 2007 through a Citrix session we get a message saying "...Outlook 
must be running in Cached Mode...". Cached Mode is not available in Windows 
2003 Terminal Services. Does anyone have any ideas how to get BCM running 
through Citrix/Terminal Services?

If you trying to host a database on the Terminal Server you could use the 
BCM admin tool.

This does not require BCM to be installed or even associated with the 
Outlook profile.

Thanks for the reply Raul. Unfortunately, that's not what we're trying to do. 
We are actually trying to run the BCM program from a terminal server. We will 
however probably be running the database from a SQL server so your link will 
help. (If we can get the program running...)

Thanks again,

1.Office 2003 run in Terminal Services does not show real user

We operate Citrix under Terminal services. All our clients work in a remote 
desktop, when a file is in use it is shown as locked but not by the person 
who is actually using the file, this makes it tricky to find out who is 
working on the document and causes problems.
The Terminal server has Office 2003 installed and the name is Administrator. 
How can we enable the system to display who actually has file handles open on 
the document and not the registered user of Office on the terminal server.

This would be so helpful if anyone can provide an answer.

Many thanks,


2.Office 2003 Pro Trial do not run in Windows 2003 Server with Terminal Services

I installed the trial of Office 2003 Pro (Italian) in Windows 2003 Server with Terminal Services enabled. The setup process run smooth, but when I open Word, Excel or whatever Office applications I get the message that "cannot run in terminal server".

4.Creating profiles via VBscript for users running Outlook via terminal services

I need to automatically create profiles for users accessing Outlook via a
terminal server (with Citrix Metaframe)

The solution I am evaluating consists in creating a logon script associated
to a group policy.

The logon script:

- detects if the user is running via terminal services client
- runs newprof (a utility from Office Resource kit) to create the profile
- exits

My questions are:

- how can I detect (via VBscript) if an Outlook profile already exists for
the user, so that avoiding to override it?
- is there any smarter solution?



5.BCM and W2K3 Terminal Services

Does anyone have experience with using BCM in a Terminal Server environment? 
We're deploying multiple desktops on a W2K3 Server and would like them each 
to be able to use BCM.  In such an environment would they each have their 
own instance of MSDE, or would they share an instance?  Does BCM set up the 
appropriate security to have multiple users in the database?  Are there any 
tricks necessary to get this set up?  Any other hints/suggestions?
