Using isync for first time to update address book

I just upgraded to Tiger and thought finally I could back up my contacts from my Motorola RAZR V3i.
However the sync process only works one way i.e. updating the phone from the address book on the Mac, and does not import any contacts from the phone.
Is this normal I can't find an answer elsewhere
thx

Synchronising is a two-way process, once all set-up correctly.
From experience I've found its best to start off with your data on the Mac first, although by using the Merge on First Sync option, in theory, you should be able to get your contacts from the phone. This doesn't always seem to work.
I don't know anything about Motorola phones, but if they have an option to Send all Contacts by Bluetooth (as vCards), use that to import your data in Address Book initially.

  • Performance issue in browsing SSAS cube using Excel for first time after cube refresh

    Hello Group Members,
    This is a continuation of my earlier blog question -
    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/a1e424a2-f102-4165-a597-f464cf03ebb5/cache-and-performance-issue-in-browsing-ssas-cube-using-excel-for-first-time?forum=sqlanalysisservices
    As that thread is marked as answer, but my issue is not resolved, I am creating a new thread.
    I am facing a cache and performance issue for the first time when I try to open a SSAS cube connection using Excel (using Data tab  -> From Other Sources --> From Analysis Services) after daily cube refresh. In end users system (8 GB RAM but around
    4GB available RAM), for the first time, it takes 10 minutes to open the cube. From next run onwards, its open up quickly within 10 secs.
    We have daily ETL process running in high end servers. The configuration of dedicated SSAS cube server is 8 core, 64GB RAM. In total we have 4 cube DB - out of which for 3 is full cube refresh and 1 is incremental refresh. We have seen after daily cube
    refresh, it takes 10 odd minutes to open the cube in end users system. From next time onwards, it opens up really fast with 10 secs. After cube refresh, in server systems (32 GB RAM, around 4GB available RAM), it takes 2 odd minutes to open the cube.
    Is there, any way we could reduce the time taken for first attempt ?
    As mentioned in my previous thread, we have already implemented a cube wraming cache. But, there is no improvement.
    Currently, the cumulative size of the all 4 cube DB are more than 9 GB in Production and each cube DB having 4 individual cubes in average with highest cube DB size is 3.5 GB. Now, the question is how excel works with SSAS cube after
    daily cube refresh?
    Is it Excel creates a cache of the schema and data after each time cube is refreshed and in doing so it need to download the cube schema in Excel's memory? Now to download the the schema and data of each cube database from server to client, it will take
    a significant time based on the bandwidth of the network and connection.
    Is it anyway dependent to client system RAM ? Today the bigest cube DB size is 3.5 GB, tomorrow it will be 5-6 GB. Now, though client system RAM is 8 GB, the available or free RAM would be around 4 GB. So, what will happen then ?
    Best Regards, Arka Mitra.

    Could you run the following two DMV queries filling in the name of the cube you're connecting to. Then please post back the row count returned from each of them (by copying them into Excel and counting the rows).
    I want to see if this is an issue I've run across before with thousands of dimension attributes and MDSCHEMA_CUBES performance.
    select [HIERARCHY_UNIQUE_NAME]
    from $system.mdschema_hierarchies
    where CUBE_NAME = 'YourCubeName'
    select [LEVEL_UNIQUE_NAME]
    from $system.mdschema_levels
    where CUBE_NAME = 'YourCubeName'
    Also, what version of Analysis Services is it? If you connect Object Explorer in Management Studio to SSAS, what's the exact version number it says on the top server node?

    Is there, any way we could reduce the time taken for first attempt ?
    Best Regards, Arka Mitra.

    Thanks Richard and Charlie,
    We have implemented the solution/suggestions in our DEV environment and we have seen a definite improvement. We are waiting this to be deployed in UAT environment to note down the actual performance and time improvement while browsing the cube for the
    first time after daily cube refresh.
    Guys,
    This is what we have done:
    We have 4 cube databases and each cube db has 1-8 cubes.
    1. We are doing daily cube refresh using SQL jobs as follows:
    <Batch xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/analysisservices/2003/engine">
    <Parallel>
    <Process xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:ddl2="http://schemas.microsoft.com/analysisservices/2003/engine/2" xmlns:ddl2_2="http://schemas.microsoft.com/analysisservices/2003/engine/2/2" xmlns:ddl100_100="http://schemas.microsoft.com/analysisservices/2008/engine/100/100" xmlns:ddl200="http://schemas.microsoft.com/analysisservices/2010/engine/200" xmlns:ddl200_200="http://schemas.microsoft.com/analysisservices/2010/engine/200/200">
    <Object>
    <DatabaseID>FINANCE CUBES</DatabaseID>
    </Object>
    <Type>ProcessFull</Type>
    <WriteBackTableCreation>UseExisting</WriteBackTableCreation>
    </Process>
    </Parallel>
    </Batch>
    2. Next we are creating a separate SQL job (Cache Warming - Profitability Analysis) for cube cache warming for each single cube in each cube db like:
    CREATE CACHE FOR [Profit Analysis] AS
    {[Measures].members}
    *[TIME].[FINANCIAL QUARTER].[FINANCIAL QUARTER]
    3. Finally after each cube refresh step, we are creating a new step of type T-SQL where we are calling these individual steps:
    EXEC dbo.sp_start_job N'Cache Warming - Profit Analysis';
    GO
    I will update the post after I receive the actual im[provement from UAT/ Production environment.
    Best Regards, Arka Mitra.

  • Using FaceTime for first time on mini iPad

    When I verify my apple Id to use face time, it goes back to sign in page for FaceTime. I have checked my apple Id and it says it is verified. If I use another device to try FaceTime myself it says my email address is not available to FaceTime.
    The apple website shows illustrations for set up showing FaceTime on off button. When I go into FaceTime icon on my mini iPad I do not have an on off button.

  • Mail acts like I'm using it for first time when I've had it for years

    I've used Apple Mail for several years and have my accounts set up, but when I launched it today, I got the "Welcome to Mail" interface and it's asking me to set up my accounts.
    I had this problem before, but forgot how to fix it. I would like to be able to get at all my old emails and all of that.

    Probably little value in reinstalling Mail -- the issue is likely within your User Account, and not the application. Removing the com.apple.mail.plist file and the Mail folder from Home/Library/Preferences and Home/Library/Mail will allow you to have a fresh start. You can test this in advance by the following:
    Create a New User Account, and as that New User try to set up this one or both Gmail accounts. If not familiar with setting up a New User Account, see:
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.5/en/8235.html
    This will be a useful test, and it not meant to suggest a permanent switch to the New User Account, but rather a test of the Mail application outside of your normal User Account and its existing setup data.

  • Used itunes for first time. Now when I open Firefox none of my previous tabs show and it opens itunes. I want my old tabs back!

    Firefox automatically opens to itunes. I seem to have lost all my other tabs. When I look at firefox options, it still says it will open to my home page but it does not. It opens to itunes and all my other tabs are missing.

    It is possible that there is a problem with the files sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.
    Delete the files sessionstore.js [2] and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.
    * Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Open Containing Folder
    * http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox
    If you see files sessionstore-##.js with a number in the left part of the name like sessionstore-1.js then delete those as well.<br />
    Deleting sessionstore.js will cause App Tabs and Tab Groups and open and closed (undo) tabs to get lost, so you will have to create them again (make a note or bookmark them).

  • Using Apple TV for first time - to rent a movie.  Logged in successfully - billing info updated.  Keep getting message to log into Itunes on PC - movie won't load on TV

    using Apple TV for first time - to rent a movie.  Logged in successfully - billing info updated.  Keep getting message to log into Itunes on PC - movie won't load on TV -
    any advice?

    3GB for a movie? That's almost equivalent to an original DVD. 
    Have you checked in the Recently Added playlist?
    I think this is possibly linear.  Select 'normal' in HB, iTunes accepts it; select 'high quality' in HB iTunes doesn't.  I can't say why; I don't have any video that anywhere approaches 3GB in size.  If that's how iTunes behaves I don't see you have too many options.  You either select normal and it works, or you select HQ and live with playing the movie outside of iTunes.
    I won't ask what movie because any help with illegally ripped copy protected DVDs is strictly prohibited by the Terms of Use so I'm assuming this is a 6 hour video of your puppy playing on the floor.

  • HT204380 help. tried for first time to use FaceTime with another iPhone user & it would not work. "FaceTime failed". we are both on wi-fi networks & iTunes accounts are set up correctly.

    help. tried for first time to use FaceTime with another iPhone user &amp; call refused to connect. Call would dial, allow us to accept call, then error message "FaceTime failed" would appear &amp; call disconnect. we are both on wi-fi networks, both phones have updated software &amp; both enabled FaceTime with iTunes logged in. don't know what else to do to get FaceTime to connect. Someone please help.

    Thanks Helen for the response. At least you can get some of the contacts to work. Absolutely none of mine will. Feel like my phone is cheating me out something it should do. Think I'm going to just have to dump all the Apple products in general because this phone hasn't worked right since I got it.

  • I updated my ipad but i couldn't use it because it asks me the apple id i used it the first time and i dont know it, what should i do.

    i updated my ipad but i couldn't use it because it asks me the apple id i used it the first time and i dont know it, what should i do?

    If you are trying to activate an iPad or iPhone and it is asking for a previous owners Apple ID and password, you have encountered the Activation Lock. This is a security feature that prevents thieves from setting up and using a stolen or lost iPad or iPhone. You have no alternative. No must contact the previous owner to get permission to use the device. If you cannot contact the previous owner return the device to where you bought it and get a refund. You will never be able to activate the device and no one can help you do it.

    i am using for first time the time machine and an external hard drive because I want to erase my macbook and start from zero files. Am i keeping my files in the portable hard disk when I will connect it again with the macbook or the time machine will erase all?
    I would like to know if after I erase all my data, empy hard drive inside the macbook, the time machine will erase all my files that I have saved in my "WD "My passport" external hard drive

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities
    Time Machine has to erase the external disk in order to make backups. Before setting Time Machine up, copy the files of your external disk to the hard disk of the Mac in order not to lose them, and then, set up Time Machine. The first backup will start automatically.
    If you want more information about Time Machine, read the Pondini's site > http://pondini.org

    I was hoping it would be something like a USB device conflict, but now the shuffle is the only thing connected...
    This article was one of the ones you linked to above in your initial post
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1369
    Under Part 9. Verify that USB drivers are installed, did you try the steps in If only "Unknown Device" appears?  That appears to be your situation.
    Also, you said that the shuffle initially worked well enough to do a sync, then it had the same problem again.  If you can get it to work again initially, before doing anything else, try the following.  Select the shuffle in the iTunes sidebar, under DEVICES.  Over to the right, go to the Summary tab.  By default, the checkbox for Enable disk use should be unchecked.  If so, check it and Apply the change.  See if that makes any difference. 
    (If Enable disk use was already checked, try unchecking it and Apply the change.  Basically, set it the "other way" and see if there is any improvement.)
    NOTE:  When disk use is enabled, you have to eject the iPod in iTunes before disconnecting it physically.
    If the disk use change makes a difference, that may provide a clue about the actual cause.

  • Computer keeps Configuring and setting up for first time use

    I have a toshiba A505-S6980 that has been working fine for a couple years.  Recently I had performance issues and suspected virus, spyware so I did a recovery with the original discs I made when I first got the computer.  Four of the six discs reloaded fine.  It did not ask for the last two discs "Environment 64 bit and Applications and Drives.  I also have a System Repair disc.  After loading the four recovery discs the computer now keeps recycling between preparing for first time use, configuring system, reboot and then back to preparing for first time use,etc.  I think I'm close to getting this, but need a last bit of help.
    Thanks

    It's been a couple days since you posted this problem. Did you get anywhere, or are you still stuck in that loop? If it's still stuck, you may just want to perform the recovery again.

  • SQL Server Management Studio - Configuring the environment for first time use

    Hi
    I have recently switched my local 'My Documents' folder location to a network drive that I 'make available off line' to allow on-line/off-line work and synchronisation when I am working in and out of the office.
    When I load my SQL Server Management Studio 2005 I frequently get 'Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio is configuring the environment for first time use'.
    Management Studio  them loads and I can continue without problem.
    I am guessing it is trying to make reference to some settings file. Any ideas? I wonder if I can change/move these settings elsewhere to a local drive?
