Proccess Server

Where can I find detailed setup and configuration information on the DPS and 
DPM?  I have looked through the SystemAdminGuide but it seems a bit 
condensed.  Are there other documents which go into more detail?

At this point, that is all the documentation available.  I will be writing 
new doc on that product within the next two weeks as part of my new Bringing 
Up Dynamics GP series of books.  We hope to have this out in 2 months.

Email me directly and I will send you a preliminary copy of those pages for 
your use on the condition that you give me some feedback as to it's 
usefulness.

Andrew,

honestly there isn't a heck of a lot to making this work.

1. launch dps.exe on the server and log in with some credentials.  it 
doesn't really matter what as long as can log in.  I typically just have an 
installed GP client on the server then drop my dynamics.set on the dps.exe

2. go into the dps setup window and press the "Servers" button.  Here add 
the machine name or IP address of your dps machine that's running.  with the 
checkbox marked and when you insert it it should take it.  If not you'll get 
an error saying something about "server xxx not available"

3. close this window

4. go back to the DPS Setup window and see what you want to enable for DPS

5. In the Service/Server ID field for that process, enter the server you 
created in #2

6. Lastly, you have to set this to run for you.  In the User Preferences you 
have to set the "Distributed Processes" from Local to Remote.

To test this, just perform the action that you set to run on DPS.  if you do 
this, you shouldn't see any activity locally and if you look on the process 
server you should see it running in the Process Monitor that is open by 
default.

It's a bit more work if you want to set up multiple process servers and use 
the DPM for load balancing but fairly similar overall.

Sql Server Indexing With Two or More Columns
I got a question with indexing. If I create an index and select 2 or more columns, what is the difference with that and creating 2 (or more separate ) indexes for them? Thanks mark It depends on what you are doing If you have WHERE Last=@p1 AND First=@p2 there no need to have two indexes , however having WHERE First=@p2 the first index on Last,First may or may not be useful, so in that case having two NCI may be a good idea I mean you need testing it, and make a decision.Also there is no need to create NCI on every column, it is especially true in SQL Server 2005 and onwards w...

Can I change Domain membership of an Exchange server?
Here is my setup. I have two child domains in the same forest. Call them DomainA.company.com and Domainb.company.com. I have 1 front end Exchange server and 7 backend exchange servers. All of these servers are in Domaina except for one. We are eventually going to collapse Domainb. Since these are in the same forest and the same exchange org, can i change the domain membership of the one exchange server? I am nervous about doing this and wanted to check to see if it is possible. My other option is to move the mailboxes to one of the other servers, remove exchange from the domainb serv...

Server-Wide Auto-Reply / Address Change Notice

I realize that each user could create a rule in Outlook... but we would need the rules to apply for a long period of time and that could be very annoying for senders... getting hit with constant auto-replies. Even if it would be possible for a user to create a rule th...

Access server name?

Exchange Server 2003 - pop3 connector
Hello all Our Exchange Server 2003 calls our ISP hourly and downloads all email for our domain from a catch-all pop3 account. When users are reading mail the time stamp which appears is the time which the email was downloaded by our server. What we want to be able to see is the time the email was created by the sender. Does anybody know how to do this? Many thanks Fin The way to go is to use SMTP rather than POP. You'll then see the time that the mail was received into the system, which will be a better representation. If you need to know where a delay was you can look at th...

Run an ipconfig /all on one of the servers that have problems when you turn the Win 2k server off. Note the DNS server IP address. Is it the IP address of the Win 2k server that you turned off? If so you will need to supply another DNS server for the clients in your domain to use instead if ...
