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 ...

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, ...

I think you mean there is an OU in AD that has all of these security groups in it. If that's the case and you want to get rid of it, I would just remove the access on that OU so only administrator have access and see if anyone yells. If all is quiet for a few weeks, you can go ahead and delete it. I wouldn't just go deleting it though without knowing for ...

To what Moo said, yes it is advised to setup CRM on it's own server. It does take up a bit of "juice" running. Also don't forget to install the router part of it on the server, that will take off some of the load from the client making it so that the server sends CRM e-mails and not the clients. In addition, we just found out that the job that runs to ...

ADFS uses three certificates: The service communications key (normally the one used by IIS for SSL) Token decrypting Token signing Only the first has a private key. The other two are created when you install ADFS. If you look at the tutorial, you'll see: "In this particular case I chose to use the certificate I created for SSL on the ADFS web site. ...

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 is a tricky question that's not always taken for granted by many vendors (sometimes at their own peril). Many of the audits listed are validation against management practices and controls. Specifically, ISO 27001, SAS70/SSAE16, SOX 404, and HIPAA are more controls based than technology based (i.e. FIPS 140-2, CC EAL, ICSA Labs product ...

Microsoft announced FF UAG/TMG are End of Life. The current versions are the last that will be released (according to the announcement, MS is a little schizo sometimes). You should expose Dynamics CRM using the IFD (Internet Facing Deployment). CRM is secure if deployed properly. Contact your reseller/partner if you have serious concerns. If you follow the ...

This is not needed, but it sure does make the installation much easier. The Admin rights are required because CRM will create some groups and accounts in AD during the installation. To install CRM 2011 witout using the administrator account, you will need to create a domain account and give it some permissions on the CRM, SQL and AD, this link from ...

After escalating to Microsoft and providing them with a trace from the CRM Diag Tool. they had me recreate a function in SQL Server management studio\databases(ORG_Name)\programmability\functions\table-valued functions\dbo.fn_collectforcascadeassign recreation was done by creating a second temp org and editing the same function to the original org pasting ...

Turns out that the problem was related to hosting WSUS on the same web application as the Dynamics CRM service. Fixed the problem by reinstalling Dynamics CRM to its own web application.

I'd stick with a real SAS RAID controller since they can also address SATA drives (including SATA SSD's). My experience with Exchange 2010 is that it seems to try to do everything to minimize disk I/O. RAM tends to be more important because of caching and what seem to be coalesced writes. I'm only using Exchange in 150-user and less scenarios, though. I'm ...

I dont know which version of CRM you are using. But if you have access to database try search the user in table systemuser. When the administrators tried find the user which filter is active, maybe the user is deactivated like James Wood said. Try search in the deactivated users or make a advanced search and ignore the state of user.

The answer to this is very simple. CRM 2011 in a multi-tenant configuration allows users to see each other in the directory, regardless of their OU container. Given my reason for AD separation was to prevent users in organizations from seeing each other, this is no longer a factor. A simple, yet effective AD structure that is viable for hosting CRM 2011 is ...

As it turns out, the issue had to do with modifying the logic on the ADFS 2.0 proxy server. The AppPool that it runs in must be configured for .NET 2.0 Integrated, otherwise it will fail and throw this error (which helps none). Now we know!

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

FYI, I got this response from an expert on CRM. Install the SQL Express on the workstation and run DDM on the Workstation. It doesn’t need to get to the SQL 2008 server. That worked. I thought I would leave this question in case anyone else has the same issue.

Are you using the Citrix UPD (Universal Print Driver?)

Seen this with HP drivers, see if you can swap between PCL5 and PCL6 driver. Also does this document happen to landscape?

As to your second point, MS CRM can and will run perfectly fine on a different server to Microsoft Exchange, and is actually recommended (you cannot install the CRM Outlook client on a system with Microsoft Exchange or the Exchange Tools installed however).

We run CRM 4.0 on 2008 server standard virtual machine no problems. It's good. Make sure you have plenty of RAM in the server. Guest system has 3Gb allocated 50% used for 15 connected users, jumps up when reports are being run. You will need to run IIS and SQL too, these can be on the same server as CRM.

If the security groups in these OUs are named like PrivReportingGroup {GUID} PrivUserGroup {GUID} ReportingGroup {GUID} SQLAccessGroup {GUID} UserGroup {GUID} and the CRM System is not existing anymore you can safely remove them. These groups are used by Dynamics CRM to manage application and user security. See the list of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server ...

I'm making the assumption that Dynamics has its own website and does not use the default website. This may be totally incorrect. Either way, if they are separate sites why don't you simply setup HTTPS Host Headers and ensure the default site and the dynamics site are both specifically assigned or bound to a certain host header or IP. You can always assign ...

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. ...

The problem clearly is that it is not a member of the domain, and therefore, not getting pass-though authentication when they login. You don't really say who you are connecting to, but if it is a hosted application, do they have a single-sign-on application? If not, I looked at this briefly, and the answer is surely in this document: ...

Problem solved, some sort of corruption on the media. Downloaded again from MSDN and working without problems now.
