BCM 2010 error creating offline copy of shared database

We have deployed our BCM 2010 database (RTM not beta) to a SQL server to

share the database amongst several users. We can successfully connect to the

database from client machines. And the user access works (create, save,

edit, etc). But when we try to create an offline copy of the database on the

client we get the error 'Business Contact Manager for Outlook could not

complete your last action or actions. Please try again.' The client sql

server service is running. I can find no event log entry that gives me a

clue to the problem. This has happened on two different machines. Both are

using the Office 2010 RTM with BCM 2010 RTM. The shared database is the same

version as the clients. Does any one have an indication of what could be the

problem?

Solved my own problem. We were attempting to replicate the shared database

between two office sites using SQL replication. apparently the offline

database function does not like this. When i removed the replication

publication at the server, the offline feature began working. But now i

can't create a replication publication for the BCM shared database. That

errors. So something funky is going on with permissions that i don't

understand. Would be helpful to have some documentation about how the

permissions and offline syncing functions work for BCM shared databases.

Sometimes the bleeding edge really hurts.
