I'm getting error 0x80040106 in SMBR when attempting to connect to the target Exchange server.
Anyone seen this before?
Can you describe the environment, Exchange version, SMBR version etc
It's Exchange 2007, 8.1 build 240.6 - Windows 2008 'R1' SP2
SMBR 6.0 build 18.104.22.168
Still having the issue.
Well the error looks like a MAPI issue, this usually comes in SMBR 6.0 in case you aren't using Outlook on the SMBR server.
In your setup, have you installed SMBR on the Exchange server directly ? If yes, then make sure you have Outlook 2007 SP2 installed on the SMBR server as well.
In case no, then also make sure your Outlook version is as per the minimum requirement specified on the Product Doc.
PS : SMBR uses Outlook MAPI services to connect to the Target Exchange server Mailboxes.
Ahh, so is it not sufficient to have MAPI CDO installed? Must have Outlook?
No my friend, SMBR uses Outlook feature for connecting the Mailboxes. If you are able to connect to a specific Mailbox using Outlook you should be able to connect using SMBR as well. ( Same user permission ).
