Knowledgebase

Welcome

Welcome to my knowledgebase, which started as a place for me to file information that I find (mostly about Microsoft Dynamics 365/CRM) and are likely to forget. Many times I searched for something only to find my own article.

Feel free to browse and if any of the information helps you in your work then that is great.

Use the search box or the tag links to search for articles.

I’m an experienced Microsoft Dynamics 365/CRM Consultant and Microsoft Certified Trainer available for hire on an ad-hoc basis. Please contact me to see how I can help with your Microsoft Dynamics project. Find out more about me.

Connect to Existing Deployment or Install New Deployment


29 Oct 2012

When installing CRM 4.0 you have the option to connect to an existing deployment. This option is for adding new CRM 4.0 servers to an existing deployment and not for connecting to an existing database following a server or domain migration.

For an existing database that has been moved to a new domain, use a new installation, create a new (temporary) organization. Then use Deployment Manager to import the existing database and then delete the temporary organization.

 

Republish CRM 4.0 Reports


29 Oct 2012

If the CRM reports get removed from the SQL Reporting Services Server they can be republished at the CRM server by using a command-line program. Navigate to the CRM installation folder, usually C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM and then to Tools. Within this folder run the following command:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\Tools> PublishReports "organizationname"

where organization name is the internal name of the CRM organization (as found in Deployment Manager).
