CRM and Great Plains Basic Installation Instructions for Client

I did a search for installation instructions for CRM and it reported no 
articles found.  Just loading CRM can be a major ordeal with this fix and 
that fix, and to not have an easy to find detailed instructions is just 
confounding to me.  How about just a basic list on how an installation of CRM 
and Great Plains on the client system.  Thank you.

Problem with services calendar
Hi, Since a few days, I am not able to get access to the services calendar with the CRM web interface. I get the message : "recording non available" as you can see in the attached picture http://i38.servimg.com/u/f38/13/08/02/00/erreur10.png When I tried to reach the calendar directly on the server, an ASP warning is generated > ID : 1309 / Source : ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0 I found a hotfix which seems (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941386/en-us) to correct this bug, but it is impossible to install.

CRM should provide a total record count when in a list view
When viewing any list view (leads, contacts, accts etc), MSCRM currently does not provide a total record count for all the records in the list. It only tells you the number records on that page.

What port should I open in my firewall to reach Exchnange for CRM
Hello people, We have a couple of servers in our domain, that all have their individual Windows firewall turned on. To make the connectivity between them possible, I open every individual port as necessary. While I install CRM 3.0 on server A with Exchange being on server B, I get an error during the installation process that my Exchange server cannot be found. This sure has to be a firewall issue - when I turn of the firewall on server B, the error goes away and I can continue the installation. I tried opening port 25, but that did not resolve my problem during installation. Can anyo...

CRM 4.0 through ISA 2006
Hi, We are using CRM 4.0 (Update Rollup 4) through ISA 2006. The CRM server has been configured to IFD mode. All of our network traffic goes through this ISA server. We have noticed that CRM usage via browser is very slow and started doing some network investigation. Fiddler trace timeline shows very well why CRM page load times are so bad. It seems that different packages are loaded "serially". In other words the timeline shows that previous package has arrived to the client before the next package load is started. We have tried for testing purposes bypassing the ISA server and th...

We could never reconnect CRM because the GUID's did'nt match. Does anyone know of a workaround? MS didn't when we contacted them at the time. BTW.....Why does there seem to be a lot of post in this NG not related to CRM? Eric CRM is tied to the Active Directory sa you have found.

An error occurred loading Microsoft CRM functionality
I have been through post after post trying to get this fixed - any assistance would be appreciated. This is a new install of Microsoft CRM. The web client works fine - no authentication needed and it works as it should. I am using Outlook 2007 and when I launch it I receive the above error. This error stems from the add-in not loading since I do not recieve it if I remove the crmaddin from the Outlook startup. I have tried removing it and then adding it back with no success. The only thing that I can come up with is that this client is on a terminal server. I have run all of the service p...

Meetings in Outlook are tracked in CRM and then get deleted
Hello, I have a user who is stating that he is receiving a meeting request, then accepting, then clicking track in CRM. It seems like the next time CRM syncs the meeting is deleted from his calendar. The meeting request is then in his deleted items. This has happened for meetings he has been invitied to and meetings for which he is the organizer. This will cancel the meeting and remove it from his calendar and those of attendees. So when he drags it out of deleted items it resends the requests. I thought because of another thread it was due to him not actually being an attendee, but thi...

Shared Message archival by client/subject?
I'm trying to organize the way documents are stored for a client. Right now they are scattered all over the place. We've installed a directory structure to organize the documents and make retrieval easy. Now its on to the e-mail. The problem is that several people have saved the e-mail in their inboxes an the exchange server is rapidly approaching maximum storage size. My initial thought would be to put a .pst file in each of their client sub directories and have them move the mail in there. The problem is that .pst files choke when shared or on a network drive. Can anyone suggest...

Outlook CRM Client
We've recently installed CRM Dynamics and it works fine. We also installed the Outlook client on several laptops which has worked fine for most of us except myself who has recently experienced a Synchronisation failure and subsequently the Outlook client is showing Disabled.

I then thought I'd try to use the CRM client to track an email. I opened an email, hit the Track button a...

Why a Genuine Advantage Notification (GAN) from an Install of an OEM XP Pro?
