    When switching from E-mail or regular contacts in Outlook 2007 to Business Contact Manager Accounts or Contacts I get the following Error message, "Business Contact Manager for Outlook could not complete your last action or actions.

Connecting to BCM 2010 Shared DB on SBS 08 Server

Postby UmFq » Tue, 11 May 2010 23:58:01 GMT

I am trying to upgrade the BCM from 2007 and have he following issue.
The tool works fine creates the DB, restores the 2007 data an upgrades the 
The uisers have been given access.

However the SQL Express 2008 shows a region on US English and the clients 
are UK(British) English.  So the connect database is gryed out as the error 
message indicates cannot connect to data with a different region.

I have tried changing the database language to British but the clients still 
cannot connect to the server to use BCM 2010 data.

How can this be resolved as this did not happen with 2007.  I am using teh 
full release versions.

1.BCM 2010 DB Sharing Options

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone knew the answers to the items below.

1. Is it possible to share a BCM 2010 database through a web server?

Right now, we have the BCM 2007 db inside a virtual machine and for our two 
sales people to use it, they first need to VPN into our network. It would be 
much simpler if they could simply hit the db URL over the internet. The same 
server that runs the BCM virtual machine also runs Microsoft IIS Web Server 
and is already hosting a web app for us.

2. Is it possible to specify what data in BCM certain users can view?
We have three categories in our db:

- General Business
- Leads
- Customers

I only want the two sales people to be able to see and edit contacts that 
are in the Leads and Customers categories. The General Business category 
consists of communications with people such as our tax accountant and lawyers 
so they sales people should not have access to that.

Hoping someone out there can advise on this.

Thanks and best regards,


2.sharing BCM db and SBS 2003

I use administrator to set BCM db up, at SBS 2003, and ok. When I try to 
share it, I receive "There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint 
mapper" when I click Next. If I click Next again, it goes to next dialog to 
choose users. I choose a user. Fine. When I click Finish I get "Error aplying 
changes" and it goes back to users dialog.
I can not start windows firewall in SBS, once RRAS is running (for NAT).

Another question is, can I access same DB from other domain client computer 
(same user)?


3.BCM 2010 and a shared BCM 2007 Database

I can't find any information on if a BCM 2010 client can access a shared 
database created by the BCM 2007 shared database tool. Our how the migration 
process will work for people moving from BCM 2007 to BCM 2010.


4.BCM DB shared on Small Business Server


Does anyone have the good document, or known KB, or even better the
experience of setting up a BCM DB on a Small Business Server so that
the clients using Outlook 2003 with the BCM client software installed
can all simultaneously access the BCM DB?
