Dynamics CRM 3.0 installation issues
Posted on 2008-06-12
I am trying to set up CRM 3.0. I stupidly uninstalled our original, and then reinstalled it and pointed it to a different SQL Server and SRS. So i finally got it all setup and then did a database restore of the "METABASE" and "<company name>_MSCRM". Now when i try to open CRM in the web browswer it returns the following error:
Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
Exception Details: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can be identified using the exception stack trace below.
[NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.]
Microsoft.Crm.Application.SiteMapCache.GetDefaultUserSubArea(User user) +10
Microsoft.Crm.Application.Controls.AppPage.OnPreRender(EventArgs e) +19
System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint) +1360
Here is some other info that could be useful:
1. I was unaware of customizations, so i did not know you had to import them into CRM. Since i already did the restore of our data, im thinking the databases have invalid configurations because the customization files are not pointing out what has changed...
2. When i try to open CRM Deployment Manager, it gives an error "You must be a Local Admin, SQL Admin, and Domain Admin to have access to this". This could be the reason why im recieving this error.
