Windows Terminal Server 2008 R2 with Roaming users + Outlook 2016 - Searching in PST impossible? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    I have a very frustrating problem. I want to use Windows 2008 R2 Terminalserver with Outlook 2016. 

    Unfortunately every time a user starts Outlook, he installs the 64 bit Components. It seems there is one solution: Installing Windows Search Role and starting Outlook in Installation Mode. 

    Seems to work. With that solution, there is another problem: It is not possible to search in pst-files. Windows error log says event ID 3036. Looks like, Windows Search cannot index pst-files (in network). The possible solution to disable indexing for Outlook does not work because the configuration change got reseted after relogin. This might happen because of our Roaming users. 

    As you can see, I have one problem. When Windows Search is installed, pst-files are not searchable. When Windows Search is not installed, Outlook 64 bit Components get installed every start of Outlook. 

    Is there anybody who has other ideas for a solution? 

    Thank you for your help.
