OC Client times out overnight RRS feed

  • Question




    The company I work for runs 24 hours a day.  We have staff working 12 hour shifts - some through the night.


    We are evaluating OCS.  We have an OC client we leave logged in & lock the PC.  Every morning - it's disconnected from the OCS server & you have to manually instruct it to sign back in.


    The OCS server does not restart overnight.



    How can I stop this - is it some sort of timout setting?  I've tried searching - I couldn't find it.


    If we switch to using OCS, we need set these timeouts to longer then at least 12 hours.

  • Hello,


    is there any news on this topic? We also are experiencing similar problems with disconnected OC clients, especially overnight.

  • Paul,


    Have you checked the event logs on both the OCS server and the computer with the communicator client installed? Are there any error or warning events that occur overnight?

  • We have this problem also, on the clients atleast - we get Userenv errors claiming group policy objects are'nt replicated right.. We have these messages occasionately, although GPO's are applied correctly most of the time - so we haven't focused too much on this..


    I won't include the info from the eventlog - it's in norwegian so it won't really help you guys anything I guess..

    Hi - this problem has gone away for us - and I'm not exactly sure what cured it - sorry.


    Since the original post - I've removed & recreated our OCS server from scratch (but same name & same fixed IP).


    I also discovered that my _sip settings in DNS were not there at all - and manually added these.  You know if this is not right if you have to manually set the client on the desktop to login to OCS - instead of automatic.  I stumbled on a good website somewhere about checking & fixing _sip dns settings for OCS.


    Somehow during all the tweaking & testing over the last few months - the problem was fixed.
