non CRM posts

Sorry to inject this, but is MSFT still trying to fix the issue with all the
non-CRM posts to this NG?  Seems like they're trying, but now we're getting
Media Player and a lot of Excel questions.

(And, in case a MSFT person does read this or follow-up, I don't use the web
interface to post or read the newsgroup, use a news reader)

I've contacted Microsoft direct about this. May be able to get something
done about it.

I just wish they would give someone the ability to delete posts that are not
crm related as I know MS are a bit too busy to be monitoring this group all
the time

CRM v1.2 in a mixed environment
Hi All - We're planning to install MS CRM v1.2 in a development environment and we'd like to find out whether we can leverage existing CRM components. For example, we have SQL Server 2000 installed on a test server running Windows 2003 and Exchange 2000 installed on a production server running Windows 2000. The SQL Server and Exchange servers are in different domains. The test server for CRM will run Windows 2000 and is also in a different domain than both of these servers. f we establish a trust between all three domains will it be possible to successfully install CRM v1.2?

Deleting users in CRM
I think the answer is "no" but want to ask regardless. :-) Is there any way to actually delete users in CRM 4.0? I know that I can disable them as well as delete them in Active Directory at the operating system level. I am using CRM in a classroom environment. The users to be deleted are some student users who did not own or create any data but simply looked at the sample data (Adventure Works). I have them disabled but for "neatness sake", wanted to completely delete them from CRM. Thanks. Jerry Hi Jerry- Unfortunately there is not a supported way to delete t...

CRM and Outlook Integration 07-22-03
Hello, I haven't seen a whole lot of great documentation on this - so if someone knows where some exists then please tell me - but I'm curious as to how featured the Outlook/CRM integration is? I see there is an addin for Outlook that gets installed, but it looks to me like it's nothing more than a synchronization tool between Outlook and the SQL Server - am I right? It looks like it syncs Contacts, Emails, Calendar dates, etc. I've looked through the SDK documentation and I've browsed a couple posts, but none really say outright in exactly what way does Outlook and CRM ...


Query a non-MS/non-Active Directory LDAP Server

How about CRM+Sharepoint in the same server?
Is that work? Both CRM and Sharepoint on one server will work, but I would not recommend that. Both applications do ask a lot from a server and it will be better to seperate them. First of all because of performance, but also because in case one of the servers go down, you still can use the other. With kind regards, Ronald Lemmen Avanade Netherlands "CEO" wrote: > Is that work? I agree with Ronald, but we have installed Sharepoint and CRM on the same server in many applications, although Sharepoint has been only used as a document storage area. Maybe if Sharepoint was...

Non-cash, Non-regular Transactions
Money 2003 SE V11 I have a need to set up transactions, such as Mileage, to keep track of non-cash activities.

CRM 4 and SQL upgrade
I have a CRM 3 installation on a SQL 2000 box which is also the CRM app server. Planning for the CRM 4 upgrade, I have a new physical server with SQL 2005 installed. What is my most efficient upgrade path? Hi, I think you can do the following: 1. Move the CRM 3.0 database to SQL 2005. 2. Point the CRM 3.0 application to the new database server. (There's documentations on how to move database to a new server on the microsoft website) 3. Install/Upgrade CRM 3.0 to CRM 4.0 on the CRM 3.0 application server. I think this is the fastest and easiest in my opinion. Darren Liu, Microsof...
