SQL Server agent

I cannot seem to locate anything that explains what SQL Server Agent is doing 
in CRM 4.0. 

We know it is a prerequisite but I cannot seem to find anything that 
explains what it is doing or why it is needed for CRM 4? 

Can anyone point me to some documentation that explains why the agent is

It seems they are related to the deleting process . Open the store
procedure in MSCRM_config and  read the T-SQL statement.

There are two jobs in CRM 4.0 .
They execute the  following storeprocedures  on MSCRM_Config

exec p_HardDelete
exec P_CleanupsitewideNotification

The SQL agent needs to be running to execute all backup plans and SQL Jobs , 

I also restart the agent when ever I change security.

Often I see clients or even consultants turn this off and then months later 
they have no backups or a trasaction job has filled up their drive.

Do yourself  a favor, turn it on and keep it on and keep an eye on your SQL

Outlook Client CRM 3.0 issues & Calender problem on Server
I have installed a test bed of CRM 3.0 on SBS premium with SQL 2005 and have a laptop which I need to use as the demo machine.

Can't open any file from the server on some machines
Hi, We are working on server 2003. On some machines, when the user is openning any(!!!) file from the server- project crashes. We tried to see if the problem is with the user or with the machine (by logging different user to the same machine or logging the original user to another machine) and found out that the problem is with the machine. What can be the problem?

Stand By Exchange Server
Is it possible to load a stand by server with Windows 2003 server, Exchange 2003, and replicate the .edp, .stm, and log files. onto this server. If I then have a failure on my mailserver I just unplug it and point the clients to the new server. I unerstand I would need to change the IP. I am trying to have the simplest backup solution I can design. Another possibility would be to have the server ready and restore the edp from the tape and run through the transaction logs. you can either go with clustering, or a third party for this type of redundancy...

Unable to bind to the destination server in DNS.
I'm receiving this errormessage for 'some' messages in the queue of Exchange 2003 SP1. The mailserver uses two other Windows 2003 internal servers as AD and DNS-server, this one uses a couple of DNS-servers from our ISP as forwarder. So far so good. Most mails get out without problems, but some of them keep hanging in the queue. When I issue a nslookup-command set type=mx domain.com I get NO mx-record (it shows me the SOA-record ???) set type=all domain.com Definitely gives one or more mx-records depending on the domain.

Exchange 2003 mail slow from SQL, ASP, and ASP.net
Running: - Win SBS 2K3 SP1 - Exchange 2003 SP2 This has me stumped, any help would be greatly appreciated... When sending mail from Outlook 2003 or from the Outlook Web Access, everything seems fine - mail is sent instantly. When sending mail from SQL Server (from within a Stored Proc) or from an ASP.net page using SmtpMail.Send( MailMessage ) - it takes 12-16 seconds for the mail to send (per message). This holds up the stored procedure or the .net page sending the mail. This is something that has just surfaced - it has all been running extremely fast for the past 2 yrs. If I have not p...

Resource Availability Graph in Project Server 2007
I'm seeing a discrepency in the Resource availability graph and what a published Gantt chart is showing. Basically, the resource availability graph is no longer showing the resource as having work on a particular date, when the gantt chart clearly shows the assignment. Also, from the Resource center, when I click View Assignments for that resource, the assignment is shown just as it is in the Gantt chart. The weird thing is, the Resource Availability graph once showed this resource as having work for that project. Since then the Gantt was edited and published, but the p...
