"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 ...

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.

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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

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 ...

Solved with http://www.c7solutions.com/blog/2008/04/crm-30-disaster-recovery.aspx - but the BuildVersion didn't have to be changed.

Does your server have SP2 for Server 2008? Later SBS 2008 installs had it slipstreamed in, but if not this is a requirement for CRM 2011.

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

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 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: ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

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.

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.

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).

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.

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

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

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!

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 ...
