Cisco MeetingPlace for Outlook sends the error message shown in this window:



There are three steps to resolve this issue: ensure that Cisco MeetingPlace Server is selected as the default, verify that Cisco MeetingPlace Server is configured on the Outlook client, and delete the form cache.

Complete these steps:

  1. Configure Cisco MeetingPlace Server.

    1. Open Outlook.

    2. Choose Tools > Options > MeetingPlace.

    3. If a server appears in the Servers field, choose the available server and check the Default check box.

      If no server appears in Servers, proceed to Step 2.

  2. Add a Cisco MeetingPlace server.

    1. Choose Tools > Options > MeetingPlace.

    2. Click Add.

    3. In the dialog box, enter the Name, Login User ID, and Password in the appropriate fields, then click OK.


    4. Select the server you have added in the Servers field, check the Default Server check box, and click OK.

      If this does not solve the problem, proceed to the next step. For Microsoft Outlook XP, use Step 3. For any other Microsoft Outlook client, skip Step 3 and go on to Step 4.

  3. Delete the form cache.

    On Microsoft Outlook XP, complete these steps:

    1. Right-click Calendar, and choose Properties.

    2. From the Forms tab, click Manage.

    2. Choose Start > Find > Files or Folders.

    3. In the Named field, enter frmcache.dat.
