cannot delete business unit?


I am using microsoft CRM 1.2 with demo license of Adventure works
Cycle. Is there any way to delete a "Business Unit". I go to Settings
-> Business Unit Settings -> Security Roles -> Business Management.
The delete option for "Business Unit" and "User" is disabled there.
I searched in groups and found a few discussion about deleting users
which say that it is not allowed to delete mscrm users. However I did
not find any reference about deletion of "Business Unit". The user
guide that comes with the installation shows steps to delete a
"Business Unit", so i presume it must be possible..
Also if there is no way to delete a Business Unit directly then is
there a way to do it manually.

Thanks in Advance

Hi James!!

Yes, you are right, you cannot delete any business unit 
in CRM, you can only disable it. You can add users to 
CRM, even though you have a demo license for Adv. Works 

Create the users in Active Directory, with their login 
etc. The go to your CRM server and create users with the 
same name, login, etc. Then remove the licenses for the 
default Adv. Works Cycle users (gail, Jose, etc) and 
assign the newly created users. And then you have your 
own users with your choice of names!!!

Hope this clears up a few questions!!

CRM 4.0 Email Router Mailbox not deleting items

Business Portal - Employee Pay
This window does not auto-populated from existing employee data in Business Portal HRM:SS. The Employee Profile/Dependent/Benefits etc. windows all populate immediately but the W-4 window requires that a Modify transaction be made by the employee and approved by the supervisor before it will display data.

Taking Ownership/Deleting Files on NTFS drive
A little background.... I work at a college and we've always redirected our user's desktop and My Documents to another drive letter on the computer (D:). When the next user logs in our login script deletes the directories and recreates them for the new user. We do this so that student's can store files under their profile when exams run. Under XP the D: drive is/was a FAT32 drive and we just used a file system object to delete the files and folders.

Bulk deletion not working
Hi All, I have deleted some records via CRM UI. But if i query into DB, the records still stay there for almost 1 week already (with deletion statecode = 2). As my understanding, once the job is deleted, there will be a bulk deletion service that will remove this data from DB forever. Any other way to trigger this deletion service? Thx Carrie Hi, To my understanding the deletion should be executed every 24 hours by the Asynchronous Service. Did you check if this service is started? There is another way to trigger the deletion than just to wait 24 hours. You can find it here explaine...

The title of the column shows, but nothing is populated or organized based on account. Now, all my contacts are ungrouped (over 3,000). If you click on an individual contact, the person still retains its Linked Account designation, but those accounts are no longer linked and organized via that filter.
