MS CRM installing Sample Data  Microsoft.Crm.Tools.SampleDataWizard.exe

Posted on 2006-10-25

Recently created a test MS CRM 3 system using the 30 Days Eval Lic, Win 2003 Domain, 3 Servers, DC , SQL 2000 Ent Sp4 and 2003 CRM all installed no problem.. Some bright spark decided they want to do a presentation using the Adventure Cycles  sample data as on the CD, installed by running Microsoft.Crm.Tools.SampleDataWizard.exe in the sample data directory.  Which run's through afterwards checking log see the following errors..

I'm install as an user with full Admin rights and Sa rights in SQL, (Same user as used to install CRM). I guess the error is related to populating the SQL tables  

Everytime I search MS talk about Version 1.2 Sample, and using a Sample Lic but the code isn't long enough..

Any ideas or pointers..

When you run the sample data EXE it should give you the option to either use the default user assignments or to manually assign the users to Active Directory users.  You should select to manually select them and then specify the user that you are logged in as as the Admin user.  You can leave the others blank if you'd like.  This should get the data in and give your user full admin rights to the environment.

Also, be sure to make a backup of the databases (Metadata and CRM) prior to the import.  This will allow you to easily restore the blank databases over top of your demo populated databases so you don't have to go through the a big ordeal to get back to a clean environment.
