"Native" mode in this context usually means 2000/2003 Native or above. If you're in 2000/2003 mixed mode, then there are certain things that aren't available in order to allow for NT4 Domain Controllers. Verify with the vendor, but it's a safe bet to assume that anything 2000 native, 2003 native, or higher is fine.

The requirement that "Active Directory must be configured in native mode" really means that no domain or forest functional level that allows for Windows NT domain controllers (Windows 2000 mixed or Windows Server 2003 interim) is acceptable. Since domain/forest functional levels of Windows Server 2003 and beyond don't support Windows NT domain controllers ...

I don't have any experience with CRM 2011, but if all you need is an Active Directory domain controller up and running in your VM, the short answer is: add the "Active Directory Domain Services" role to your server, then run dcpromo from the command line and follow the wizard to create a new domain. For creating a new domain with no migration or legacy ...

You can ballpark about $2300 per user plus $6000 for the server install & basic training. I highly recommend finding an MS Partner and talk to them about how your business works now and what you want to accomplish; and not not try to do-it-yourself. The various Dynamics products (AX, NAV, SL, & GP) all cost around the same amount, but the accounting ...

I've just phoned with Microsoft Support, and with its help I could solve this issue. The Bug : The problem here was a localization issue. My fr-FR Dynamic CRM Install tried to add a SQL user called "AUTORITE NT\SERVICE RESEAU" on the imported database while a "NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE" user already existed. Both are in fact the same login account, ...

The best way to find out what tables are available is to use the Microsoft Dynamics GP SDK, and the Resource Descriptions tool available in dynamics GP (Select Tools -> Resources -> Tables). While the list hasn't changed much it has changed. In addition there are addins that make changes to forms and reports that may add additional tables or views.

Problem may be with stored credentials in Windows 7. Clear appropriate credentials under: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Credential Manager.

I think I found the answer after a little more digging so I'll provide that here: The License Key is tracked in the MSCRM_CONFIG database under the ConfigSettings table according to this thread: SELECT LicenseKey FROM dbo.ConfigSettings So checking the other columns in the ConfigSettings table I found the InstallOn column. I assume that this is the date ...

This looks like a CRM error when trying to use Outlook Web Access. According to the link below, when installing CRM on the same server as Exchange, you must change the port numbers used by CRM, otherwise it will overwrite the default web site settings required by Exchange for OWA. The link is also very detailed on how to get both working on the same ...

If you know, you can go to MSSQL server and write your SQL query to fetch data from CRM database. After this, you can use Sharepint designer, and use Business data connectivity service

The problem seems to stem from the fact that the SharePoint connection is in an iFrame and it is trying to call the document object of the parent window somewhere. IE will prevent this to protect against cross-site scripting. You can test this by opening the address of the iFrame in a separate browser window. Here, the New and Action menus should work ...

Hosted CRM is almost always accessed by a Live ID, the same goes for host Exchange. You get a "special" Live client that has to be running on the workstation you're accessing it from, that client authenticates and integrates Outlook with the hosted service. In short, you have host AD and Exchange locally, and CRM in the cloud, it just takes an extra little ...

It's listed in the CRM 2011 Installing Guide (I'm copying it from there for you convenience) Source:http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=200050 Configure Active Directory by creating an account to run the CRMAppPool service and use a Service Principal Name (SPN). This is required when you run IIS 7.0 in a clustered or a network load-balanced environment. ...

This worked for me under Windows 7: Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Services >> Search on " Dynamics Ax " and click " play Button " ( coloured Green ) in the tool bar .. Should do the trick!

One of my users was getting very poor performance, and getting a lot of small errors in the system log about various CRM issues. I installed roll-up 5 and they have really quieted down. However this is just one admin talking, take it with a grain of salt. Perhaps install it on a test system have a power user play around with it.

Why are you running the trace, what problem are you troubleshooting? Do you have write access to that Trace directory? Can you click the "Create File" button and post that information? Have you enabled "DevErrors"?

The permissions should be given to the user running the Asynchronous service, that is not the same as the IIS Application Pool. Check the Account that is running the Async Service, and the Email router. Both accounts should have access to the directory described in the error in the Event Viewer (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\Trace) After that you ...

I think you've already stated the obvious, quickbooks is not in the same league as dynamics. I'd wonder why quickbooks even made the list of possible upgrades. In addition to GP you can also begin to think about CRM and ERP in the dynamics line- that's not really a possibility in the quickboooks line.

There are quite a few articles on why people upgrade to GP over Quickbooks. As a GP Var more often then not our phone rings because of the following: *Functionality: Too many manual process outside of QB that an ERP software can do especiaily under inventory management. Reduce spreadsheets. *Reporting: too much reliance on "tribal knowledge" and ...

Do you have any reason to trust that consultant? If it were me, I'd deploy it on a testing server and see what performance is like. There are a variety of stupid things an app can do that make it a bad fit for virtualizing or remote desktops, but who knows if your app does? (Edit) I see you said you're already running it in a testing environment. Well, ...

There are still application vendors today that will not commit to saying that their application will work properly under Citrix, or VMware. In some cases, they even know that there are active problems. ERP apps can be tough nuts to crack, because in a lot of cases, you're getting all the install and support through a VAR, so you might not have access to a ...
