Points of My Scenario:
1. I am troubleshooting CRM Dynamics website failure, which occurred after 3 un-installable Windows updates (KB4025337, KB4022722, and KB4034679).

2. Users get the following error when attempting to connect to website: "This page cannot be displayed. Turn on TLS1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 in Advanced settings and try connecting to <https://website> again"

3. TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 were all always checked (turned on) in the Advanced tab of the Internet Options dialog box.

4. In IIS (on a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 member server) the "Microsoft Dynamics CRM" website bindings include http (over port 'wxyz'), and https (over port 'efgh').

5. Surprisingly, the "Browse *:wxyz (http)" link works, WHILE the "Browse a.b.c.d:efgh (https)" link  fails with the generic error "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

6. When the user tests the non-SSL version of the website, (s)he gets the error "Not Authorized. HTTP Error 401. The requested resource requires user authentication."

7. The https (SSL) and the http (regular, unsecure) links are identical - so, whereas the https (SSL) link complains about the absence of settings that are truly present, http complains that the user is not authorized.


QUESTION: What shall I do next to troubleshoot/resolve this failure of the CRM Dynamics website?

I am grateful for any help I can get. :-)

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

We are running MS CRM 2016 on a single server utilising ADFS (installed on the CRM server) and Claims Based Authentication. We would like to add a second Company using a copy of the live database for testing purposes, using the concept within this link (not worried about the Resco side of things as we do not use it):

https://blog.resco.net/2017/05/24/how-to-create-a-copy-of-your-production-crm-database-for-testing-resco-mobile-crm/

Does anyone know if this will cause any issues with the ADFS or Claims Based Authentication or anything else?

I have msdn license on dynamics crm 2016
and want to find out the cost of hosting in azure
Or hosting using local vendor.

Of course, azure will be the best but not sure how to install dynamics and most important is the cost.

If anyone has been facing this and tell me more. I will be very appreciate

Thanks

Hello:

The journal entry created by Microsoft Dynamics GP Manufacturing for Standard Cost Revaluation is, indeed, pulling the correct Standard Cost Revaluation account and debiting and crediting it.

But, the journal entry is, also, pulling in another account.  Where would this account come from?  I have looked over the Manufacturing setup windows and am at a loss.

Thank you!

I have 2 problems, but they are inter-related.

MS CRM 2013 on premise, all functions on a Windows Server 2008 R2 VM with the SQL DB on a separate Windows Server 2008 R2 server.

1) Report Server not working as expected
2) CRM workflows stopped working.

CRM 2013 has been installed and working fine for years. About a month ago they wanted to start using reports, but the report server was never used or tested before. Tried to do some subscriptions and got the error message about credentials not stored. So I researched and at that time the SQL server was SQL 2008 standard. The requirements stated it must be at least SQL 2008 R2. So on Sept 4 I upgraded the SQL server to 2008 R2. Everything still working as normal after that but still no reports or subscriptions. Further research suggested that both the CRM server and the SSRS needed to be at 2013 SPM U4. The Server was 2013 SP1 U3 but SSRS was only 2013 SP1. So Friday afternoon I installed 2013 SP1 U3 on SSRS but it prompted for a restart. Well can not do that so waited until Saturday morning. At that time I restarted the SSRS server then installed 2013 SP1 U4 on the CRM server and on the SSRS server and both were restarted.

So, Monday morning I get an email saying all workflows failed after Friday afternoon.  I was told this AFTER I had been attempting to get reports to work by making some changes to the SSRS via the SQL Reporting Services Configuration Manager.

So, I need urgent help. First to get the workflows …

Hello:

We have several items for which we need to conduct Standard Cost Changes, within Microsoft Dynamics GP.

GP will not let us do so, however, since there are unposted Purchasing Invoices remaining for these items.

Has anyone found an alternative method, perhaps, of conducting changes to Standard Cost for inventory items that are within unposted Purchasing transactions?

Thanks!

Hello- I have recently gotten involved with our new MS Dynamics 2016 rollout for our sales teams and I am just kind of feeling my way through the many screens, etc.  I have one issue that I have inherited that I could use a little help troubleshooting.  We have two regional presidents.  Sales managers and sales team members are ultimately roll-up to these two presidents.  The way it has been explained to me is that when the presidents go into dynamics they have access to an 'exectuve view' (dashboard?) and one of the combo boxes on that view is 'My Open Opportunites'.  When the president selects 'My Open Opportunites' he is supposed to see ALL of the open opportunities in his region, from all sales team members.   This is working correctly for President A, but when President B looks at this screen there are no results.   Can someone point me in the right direction on what permission to check for President B in comparision to the settings for President A so that I might see if this can be corrected?  I have much to learn in the weeks ahead about all this but if I could get this little issue corrected it would be a great start!  Thanks for any help! -

Hi all,

I know next to nothing about Microsoft Dynamics CRM but we have a client that has this spread across 3 Windows servers and no longer have support for this but they've advised us that it's stopped working (getting the error "business management error - the user id associated with the current record is not valid) so i've checked all the IIS bits are running along with the services and want to go to the management console to check settings there but i can't seem to find any console or management tool/program at all ? Can someone tell me if there IS a management program (like management studio for SQL) where i can "manage" the CRM system ?
Hope this makes sense.
Thanks

We have a new installation of MS CRM 2011. All of the Rollup Patches have been applied to the installation. The built-in administrative account works fine. We added our first user. However, when we open us the user (a local Domain User), it shows a scaled-down interface. We cannot do anything with the use. We want it to be able to access a calendar, add Tasks & Appointments, etc. When we try to do anything with the user we get the error message "An error has occurred". "Try this action again ...". When we try to deactivate the user, the same message. We understand that we cannot delete the user. Since we cannot deactivate the use we're stuck in a catch 22 loop. We tried re-adding the user , but we get the message that the user already exists. How can we modify the user in question so that it is usable? Screen shots attached.

Veeam® is happy to provide a FREE NFR server license to certified engineers, trainers, and bloggers.  It allows for the non‑production use of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows. This license is valid for five workstations and two servers.

On our collection of abstracts in our CRM system, there are multiple authors with their affiliation information listed and I need to condense them all into once box that would come in the following format:

Author 1, Author 2, Author 3 | Affiliation 1; Affiliation 2; Affiliation 3;

There is no set number of authors an abstract could have, so some could have just 2 authors, while others have 15.

I have tired to accomplish this with a CRM workflow and amending author 2-15's affiliation information but whenever I run the workflow, it only concatenates two of the fields.

If I can get it to work with a workflow, that would be better because I have very limited coding knowledge. Any help is appreciated.

We created a Clone of a Production GP Server called GPDEV. It has new SID and rejoined to domain with different name. All appears fine.  

I also cloned a Production client machine (which contains all the GP Client stuff) and did the same with SID and Domain join. All appears fine.

How can I configure the Dynamic GP Client, to point to new new server GPDEV?

Hi experts

I had to change the SSL and service communications certificate in an Dynamics CRM AD FS server. The old one was sha1 and I was told to change it to sha2. So i first changed the internal signing CA to issue SHA2 certificates. Then I created a new csr for the communications certificate, and issued it from the CA. I imported the new certificate in the personal and trusted root certification authorities on the server, and then added read permissions in the private key for the AD FS service account.

Then I binded the new certificate to the web site in IIS and selected it as the service communications certificate in the AD FS managment console.

I followed this steps

and this (the server is 2012 R2)

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn781428.aspx

I didnt replaced the token sgining and token decrypting certificates.

After restarting the active directory federation services and iis management service, the new certificate wasnt displayed. So i then created new certificates for token signing and token decrypting using powershell. Followed the steps to update both certificates using powershell

The Dynamics 2009 AX Batch Queue has several jobs that are recurring.  They were not running, therefore, other things were not happening Invoices, EDI ASNs transmitted, etc. How can I unstick the queue so that the jobs run.  This is the first time it's happened in a very long time. Usually everything runs without a hitch.

in crm, we have user entity (system), and i create custom entity called insurance license type (e.g. type 1, and type 2)
then in crm, i make 1 to N (one to many) relationship, save and publish.

Then, I go to insurance license type and create a web form inside of crm. And try to get look up field from user entity (system) but it does not work. why ? and how to fix ?

In general, I just want to create web form called insurance license with one look up field called user full name, so i can save the full name, and type 1 or 2 inside of insurance license entity.

Or if you know what I did wrong, let me know.

Hi,

I have received a requirement lately from the business asking to be able to bulk edit and assign records from a custom entity in one step/form. I discovered the bulk edit which is partly what we are trying to accomplish but it has some restrictions. In bulk edit, we are not allowed to change the records assignment to another user - as this is a business required field and I cannot change that. Also, the fields that we want to modify are spread out across the form. A dialog will only work for one record at a time and won't let me assign the file and a workflow will not gather user input so it is useless.

Is there a simple and better way of accomplishing this?

Please let me know.
Thanks!

Hello:

A Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 customer has noted that running the default Sales Line Items SmartList is freezing GP for users to the point where GP is virtually suspended from use.

It is true that this tends to be one of the "heavier" SmartLists, considering the volume of sales and line items.

But, is there a way of speeding up the display of SmartList?

Thanks!
