Hello, I have a Exchange 2003/OWA frontend that is protected with RSA two
factor authentication inside a Checkpoint Firewall.
The RSA part works fine and everything is good. Now I buy a Motorola Droid
and need to set up the Exchange Sync and the RSA poses a problem. If I
remove the RSA protection the Droid connects to the OWA and syncs well.
Calls to RSA says it will not work with a Droid so I'd have to get rid of
the RSA authentication.
The question is: it looks like if I want to use a Android 2.0 based Droid

what really is the best practice method for brining in monthly GL figures so
users can get comparative statements this year/lastyr.
do you bring in all the old detail journals? or do you load via a
maintenance or IM the historical balance for each month in some file.
You mean when you are starting up a new company?
If so, unless someone needs the detail imported into GP for other reasons, I
bring in a beginning balance and monthly net changes only. For example,
let's say you're starting to use GP with January 2009, your fiscal year ends
in December and y...GP10 Security Best Practices Question
I have read up the KB articles on the new role-based security with GP10 but
have some questions.
If I upgrade but choose not to convert the old security, what is the
quickest/best way to get up and running with fresh GP10 security?
I have about 50 User-Id's that will need updating.
There is no "quick and easy way" around security in any GP release. For v10
in particular, I would suggest you start to look at the tasks and roles
performed by your users then compare those to the existing tasks and roles
created under the new security model, then ass...Integration -- best practice for ERP / CRM cross references
I'm implementing some integration points between MS CRM
and an ERP application, MFG/PRO.
I've had good luck with Accounts and Products. I've also
successfully created an invoice. The invoice poses a bit
of challenge in that one cannot assign an invoice number
to a CRM invoice. Ideally, I'd like the <invoicenumber>
field of the Invoice object to equal the invoice number
from the ERP system. Unfortunately, CRM wants to assign
its own invoice number. I don't see another field on the
Invoice object that fits the bill.
This isn't the end of t...One contact multiple accounts
We work with several contacts who are responsible for multiple
accounts and I can't figure out the best way to handle this in CRM.
Does anyone have a suggestion for how to handle this?
There are a few ways you can skin it.
1. Though contact can belong to only one account, it can be a primary
contact for multiple accounts.
2. Built-in Relationship Roles (available under Settings) allow to create
new relationships between accounts and contacts. Once relationship is set
up, account records are going to be available on a contact form under
3. If relationship needs to car...AP Credit Card Best Practices
Can someone point me to some documentation on the best practices for setting
up A/P credit cards? We pay a lot of things with cc, and it is no fun
trying to reconcile ap when things get messed up (or have to do a return
with cc, etc.). right now everything is going through 1 ap account and I am
wondering if this is part of our issue, or if it will still be painful even
if we break the cc's out into a separate gl account...
Any ideas are much appreciated!

Microsoft says to put data and log files on different physical disks. I have
already moved the backup files to a different physical disk; can I use this
disk for the log files or should I get another physical disk?
More disks is always better, because it adds I/O, and often the amount
of I/O is a bottleneck.
If your budget does not allow that, and you must choose between having
logs on the backup files disk or logs on the data files disk, then I
would definitely go with putting the logs on the backup files disk.
Having said that, it is probably even more impor...Exchange best practices for a front-end server

I have 9,000+ data points that need to be in an X Y Scatter Chart. About 50%
only have an X Value, but the absence of the Y Factor is important data. It
represents no actions were needed for a 6 month period of time.
If I remove those missing the Y Factor, the time spent is overstated. If I
place a zero, Excel doesn't like it. I have inserted a .0000001 for the
missing Y Factor and then I get a misrepresentation the opposite way.
I have added all the values and averaged for a single point and non of the

What are the best practice recommendations as to the location of the reports

is it ok to have duplicate contacts: for example: a priest and secretary

Someone suggested that we should first create a separate SQL instance,
stating that Best Practices maintains that it is best to have a separate

Does Best Practices really maintain that it is best to have a separate

Also, isn't it much harder to maintain a test environment if the test

On investigation, the DNS Host Record is not missing, and the Primary DNS

We've been running Exch5.5 on an NT4 BDC without any problems for 5 years.
Thinking of doing the same thing when we migrate to Win2003, Exch2003. Due
to budget constraint, we plan to get a new box to run Win2003 AD (first DC)
and an additional box as a backup DC (I understand there's no BDC in
Win200x). The second box will be configured as Win2003 AD controller
(additional controller for the same domain) with Exch2003 server running on
top of it.

fine? Also, can Windows SBS 2003 coexist with Windows 2003 Standard ...Best Practices: #include
I was wondering what those in this group consider 'best practices' when

In this respect, we're considering a 'when both work' scenario.
My current philosophy: essential headers in the .h file, otherwise, in
the .cpp file.
I'm sure there's much opinion on this!

In another thread I found the following quotation:
"You should only use try/catch. File.Exists() is a waste of time,
because you always _have_ to have the try/catch block anyway. Even if
File.Exists() returns true, the file could disappear before you can
actually open it and load it as an XDocument, and you could experience
other errors as well."
I want to know in common if it is better to _only_ catch exceptions
instead of verifying dependencies like existing files before an operation.
