The installation of these software components to user desktops will require access privileges that often are disallowed to many or most end users. If your network serves “locked-down” Windows environments where end users cannot install software, we strongly recommend a “push” method for software distribution from the system administrator to user desktops that bypasses the requirement for user access privileges. This “push” method of distribution is explained in “Push” Method Deployment, If End Users Lack Installation Privileges.
For a full explanation of any or all of the processes offered in this panel, and the implications of installing or not installing them, please see Connector for Microsoft Outlook High-Level Architecture in Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Deployment Planning Guide in the Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Deployment Planning Guide.
Install or upgrade Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook. Tells the program to install the software that facilitates the necessary ongoing communications between the user’s Outlook client application and the Sun Java System server. If Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook is already installed, the user program will check the installed version and, if appropriate, upgrade to the newer version.
Operating System Windows 2000 (Service Pack 3 or higher) or Windows XP (Service Pack 1 or higher).
Outlook 2003, or Outlook 2002 with Office XP Service Pack 2 or higher, or Outlook 2000 with Office 2000 Service Pack 3 or higher.
Microsoft Outlook must be designated as the user’s default email client. If Outlook is not set as a user’s default email client, see Designating Outlook as the Default Client resolve this problem.
The software cannot be installed to any workstation that also contains the Sun Java System Synchronization program (previously known as the Sun ONE Sync program), which is incompatible with Connector for Microsoft Outlook. If the Sun synchronization program has been installed on a particular user’s desktop, it must be removed (see Removing Sun Java System Synchronization.
The Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook Setup Wizard will detect any discrepancy between these requirements and the actual installation environment, and in that case will not install Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook.
Install or upgrade Microsoft Web Publishing Wizard. Tells the user program to install Microsoft’s Web Publishing Wizard (WPW), which makes the user’s Free/Busy information available to the Sun Java System Calendar Server. If WPW is already installed, the user program will check the installed version and, if appropriate, upgrade to the newer version. If you mark this checkbox, you must also specify the network location of the installation kit for the Web Publishing Wizard.
Create/convert/upgrade user profile. Activates the User Profiles tabbed panel, so the user program can convert an existing eligible Outlook user profile or create a new profile for use with the new Sun Java System Connector. The user program will convert only an “eligible” profile, meaning that the profile must:
Include message services of at least one type designated in the User Profiles tabbed panel (in the Converted/upgraded Profile Settings section).
Not have been fully converted (all of its .pst files converted) by a previous run of the user program (although the remaining, unconverted .pst files of a partially converted profile can be converted).
If this box is not marked, the entire User Profiles tabbed panel will be grayed out and unavailable, and no user profile will be converted or created. For example, you may want to create a user installation package to simply install or update MAPI services without converting or creating any profiles.
