I have several of these messages:

11:36:30 Conflict generated, remote item is winner

I'm sure they mean something to somebody, but it isn't me. I haven't been able to find a way to disable these though - any idea what causes their generation and any settings I can change? Thanks!!!

This error relates to a difference between a mail item stored on the Exchange Server, and the item stored locally on the machine. Often this issue occurs when using OST files in outlook to work offline.

A common reason for this error is different timestamps on messages, modification of an email in both outlook (offline) and owa, or a out of date OST file. If its an issue with the OST file then a common solution is just to rebuild the OST file, this will ensure everything is up to date. If it is because the mail has been edited in 2 places, there's not alot you can do about that other than not do it!

Do you think that verifying the time on both deviced might help? The remote devices almost certainly sync to a broadcast time service, but his internal PC or maaybe the server itself doesn't. I will check there, any thoughts? – Jes Jul 6 '09 at 13:23
Yes, its worth checking, particularly if its only occurring on one machine. – Sam Jul 6 '09 at 13:49

I'd guess you have two clustered ldap servers (maybe AD?) trying to synch an entry/check that an entry is synched.

I'd say that two instances representing the entry conflict for attribute 0x0080001F and the remote instance is older so it is the one that is used. I.e. the local version of 0x0080001F is synchronised (chnaged to match the value of) with the remote version.

E.g. local:

dn: ou=blah,dc=banan,dc=edu


dn: ou=blah,dc=banan,dc=edu

Then the local copy's cn would get set to "freddy" because the remote copy is more recent.

We actually do not implement ldap here. I'd guess this is either iPhone or BlackBerry related, but I haven't yet found anything helpful. I know with remote devices, conflict messages are bound to happen. What I mainly want to do is find out where these are generated and shut them off... – Jes Jun 19 '09 at 13:01
Well whatever it is I'm pretty sure its just some property/value getting sync'd between 2 copies of it. – Jason Tan Jun 19 '09 at 13:08
If your using Exchange, it means your using Active Directory, which means your using LDAP – Sam Jun 19 '09 at 23:20
