I am installing a new V center appliance and have hit a wall.
I have tried to log in and it asked for "old password"  which is just enter.
Then new password I enter, a password that meets the requirement for password security.
It takes that password with out issue. I then when I repeat the password an error stating "Password does not match".
I have reentered this password making sure each key stroke is correct and have gone as far as replacing my keyboard.
 No luck any ideas? I normally don't do the installs so I have limited experience with this.

Thanks for any help

When you purchase a business application, i.e. ERP app, and chose to install it on servers in your own infrastructure, as opposed a SaaS type offering - I presume you also purchase some degree of application support from the suppliers of the software for incidents/bugs/issues encountered using the software (as opposed issues on the infrastructure/servers which your internal IT engineers would address).... What are these support agreements with the software suppliers typically called? I am struggling to find any examples but I believe its because I don't know the correct terminology. Also is it typical for the support to be a one off payment or is it an annual type agreement whereby you need to renew at set intervals.

Hello:

In GP 2010, I have seen instances in one of our foreign GP companies that the sales invoice would post in US Dollars.  But, the resulting journal entry would post in British Pounds.

I did some testing in Fabrikam and created a sales transaction in Canadian Dollars.  Upon posting this transaction, the journal entry remained in Canadian Dollars.  I say "remained", because GP does not let you change the data within the "Currency ID" field.

So, how is it possible that--in our production environment--someone posted a journal entry in one currency even though the subledger's currency was different?

Thanks!

Vendor initialization failed
Context openDatabase
references to NTWDBLIB.dll  and our ODBC datasource follow.
Same error as referenced in this question
http://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/25092334/GoldMine-6-0-Vendor-initialization-failed-From-Workstation.html

Yes, the usual solution is to install SQL client, and I have done this on  many other machines.

This problem is on a Windows 7 and 10 box.
SQL management studio is installed on the 7 machine, I connect to SQL DB's all day.
 ODBC  data sources connect as well.

ntwdblib.dll on both machines but  goldmine login fails
The bbeadmin won't connect either.

What else could be the problem here?
Thanks

Hi!

My company used to run its business on an individually programmed AS/400 system for the last 20 years or so. Currently we are in the process of investigating an upgrade of the whole infrastructure. Since it's a wood trading company with a rather unusual corporate mission, the amount of different departments are very limited to just administration, logistics and procurement department. Annual turnover is considerable (>300 Mio €).

There are various solutions covering our demands for the financing/accounting part which would fit off the shelf (e.g. SAP, Navision, BMD). For logistics we also have some options in mind. The issue seems to be procurement. It seems difficult to find something capable of dealing with the special requirements induced by the wood business.

Finally the software should handle the process of:
manage access permissions for users
keep a history of changes to system data
maintain material master data (the big issue, since material schema is attribute based resulting in substantial amount of very specific products which have to be grouped flexibly)
maintain price lists
maintain customer master data
store planed procurement figures
management of customer contracts
provide interfaces for import/export of data
work online and offline (sync when network available)

Hello Ee ,

My company is an application service provider . We have a very large custom product suite spanning dozens of server vm instances . Last count was over 1000 config files that are needed to be managed and reapplied during software updates. What is the best product suite to manage these configuration files. We are also microsoft shop , and would like to get some feedback on system center configuration manager . Would this be ideal for custom config files ? I am open to other solutions as well.

[Admins - please reassign topic selections if there are more appropriate ones - thank you]

Hello all,

Is anyone out there using (or familiar with) an open source help desk solution or customer support portal?

I want to build a customer support portal with all the usual customer support features, such as these nice to have:
Secure, registered user only access.
Opening news/blog page with most frequent download/kb article stats, etc.
Asset libraries for self-serve documentation, video training, and software updates downloads.
Good site-wide content search. (very important)
KCS format/searchable knowledge base. (very important)
This should include customer feedback capability on KB articles (i.e. "was this helpful? "yes" or "no" - plus comment)
Customer forum.
Typical self-serve customer ticket submission and escalations with customized forms (and different forms available for different types of customers - driven by their SLA agreement levels). (very important)
Rules settings for customers with different service levels agreements.
Universal inbox (all tickets/conversations with customers) are accessible by all agents. This is especially important when an agent is unavailable to continue on an important issue with a client.

Additional considerations:
Scalable customer and team growth (current customer base is 50 and team is 5 support agents) with expected growth to 1000 customers within the next three years.
Support for mobile device viewing.

I am using a mix of Archimate and Visio, neither of which are satisfactory. I want to be find an app that is a cross between these and AutoCAD (for layers) and PowerPoint (for animation/visualisation). A use case might be - there are 9 integrations between System A and System B which at a high level is shown as one line, click on the line and it breaks out into the 9 showing direction of data exchange with  details about what those integrations are etc. So rather like an AutoCAD drawing for a building I could see different layers and level of detail etc. TIA.

I've been in IT a good long while, mostly as a database developer (Oracle and some sql server), now working in Business Objects on the Business Intelligence team.

I'm having a struggle understanding "Business Intelligence" in regards to day to day operations vs. a data warehouse perspective.

We use Business Objects Web Intelligence 3.1, soon to move to BI Suite 4.x, so adding Crystal Reports and Dashboards to our reporting stack. This is an institution of higher learning with a military component (ROTC), but all students are ROTC, so it's all integrated.

Virtually all of our reporting is operations. Grades, military grades (PT scores, evaluations), etc., all reporting is for current students.

Our BO universes simply point to the ERP system, and then universe of course makes it easy for the user to get their (simple) (operational) reports.

But - when I look at definitions of Business Intelligence, mostly what I see is "BI is focused on reporting and analysis of data residing in either enterprise data warehouses and/or data marts"., reference here., pg. 3
- So since we're reporting directly from the ERP system and not a data warehouse, is what we do NOT Business Intelligence ???

If we did have a data warehouse, it would simply be copying over data from the ERP system after 10 years or so, as is (nothing aggregated, it would simply be an archive). So our DW would be populated via ETL once a year - not daily, weekly, or monthly.

When you purchase a software app (business/ERP app) and install it on servers in your own infrastructure, as opposed a SaaS type model, what kinds of contractual SLA's would you typically have with the providers of the application? I was thinking stuff like incident response to faults etc. Can anyone provide a list of key things you need to have in a contract with the providers?

MSCRM 4.0 - When installing CRM, I ran into some issues when using the domain service account.
After a lot of googling, I came across an article that asked to install with "Network Service" and then later switch to using the domain account. I was able to complete the install using "Network Service".
Now I am trying to change from Network Service to a domain account. I changed the identity for MSCRMAsyncService and was able to start it. However when I change the identity of the CRMAppPool, CRM errors out. I enabled trace and found this in the trace file.

Hi,
Looking into any application, script, or other way to do a good load test on a Dynamics product (GP, NAV, AX).  

Often when an environment is in staging or testing phase the functionality is tested, and everything is confirmed to be working, but then when deployed to live where instead of the 15-20 users it had on it in test, it now has 150-200 users, we discover other issues when the system is under load.

Looking if anyone has any suggestions of ways to load test a Dynamics product as well as the SQL back end?

Hello all,

So everyone knows what is being asked, I am attempting to rip the .wim file from a windows 10 machine to upload it to my automated install software to distribute out images of windows 10 to client machines.

For context, here is the previous steps to take to rip the .wim file from a syspreped image of Windows 7 for Automated Scripted Installs:

Enter in this command: Imagex /capture C: (yourflashdriveletter):\install.wim "Windows 7 Enterprise" "Custom Updated image" /Flags "Enterprise"

I have yet to get this to work when attempting to do the same with a windows 10 .wim file. As a shot in the dark, I tried to just replace the syntax to match windows 10, but clearly, no luck.

Anyone have any ideas or know of good syntax to use to complete the task?

Many thanks in advance,
Aaron.

Hi Experts,

I have a question regarding a NETAPP storage.
I have the unit FAS2552.
Our ERP system generates a lot of files each day and they are stored in an archive folder on the NETAPP.
Now we have 1.6 million files in it.
On the NETAPP there is a limit which is called MAXDIRSIZE. This is sometimes a problem and I have to increase the limit.

Is it possible to switch it off ?
Can you explain the MAXDIRSIZE ?
What does it mean this value ?
Which value I need for 3 million files in one folder ?

After login to the windows, a few minutes later the user experience an error message. Below is the error. But it is intermittent. After I do a GPUPDATE /FORCE and restart the system it will go away. After a few more boots, it will come back again.

MTI-MOTD.VBS Error message
I suspect it has something to do with the logon script and conflict with some apps. Don't know what app. Or it could be the connection to the network is too slow and causes an error. I don't thing it is a WSCript error.

The system is a Lenovo x240 laptop. OS is windows 7 Enterprise 64bit. Loaded with ISAM ESSO startup and a logon script is pushdown during windows startup.

I hope someone here will be able to assist.

Hello All,

I have just came across a conversation where apparently the subject was "Systems management in an enterprise multi location and multi platform". My assumption is that there were talking about some kind of a software or solution that makes the management of remote devices more efficient.

Can someone elaborate on this a little more on what this actually is? Is there a specific product that actually does this?

I am kind of confused.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I want to make sure Windows 10 does not come and install automatically on my networks. We use WSUS and I set the automatic aproval to NOT aprove any Windows 10. I have not seen it apear like on my home computer. The only computer that has Windows 10 is the one I specifically installed. Just making sure, it appears it will not automatically install or install as an update on Windows 7 pro computers. If that is the case, then I am fine. If it will and I need to do something to stop it, please let me know. We want to install on a departmental basis and make sure all the bugs are cleared before moving to the next department and don't want all computers updating on their own.

Thanks

Given that SAP modules are built, and managed by SAP itself.

However, small changes are possible at the customer end.

What is left out as a role for a SAP system architect that an ABAPer or BI consultant can't handle?
