With CRM 4.0 i succeded  in making this scenariowork, but CRM 2011 Otlook client configurator does not allow me to enter the user name and password for the Crm Server.

    Any Ideas?

  • It is also possible to manually cache credentials for active directory if you follow these steps:

    In Windows 7 (might differ a little for Vista or XP)

    1. Go to Control Panel
    2. Select User Accounts -> Manager Your Credentials
    3. Under Windows Credentials select 'Add a Windows credential
    4. Enter address servername (no need to add http)
    5. Enter your domain username and password
