MS CRM 2011 IngnoreChecks on SRS Data Connector

December 13th, 2011 DynamicsMSCRM Comments off

Adding IgnoreChecks works fine is a CRM component has already been installed but what if the registry key does not exist. In that case we need to create it to get around the missing entries and continue with our installation.

1. Create the MSCRM key in the HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT directory

2. Create a new DWORD value named IgnoreChecks, set the value to 1

3. Launch the installer, at the environment checks the ‘Next’ should will be available to you.

MS CRM 2011 AddWindowsIdentityToPrivilegeGroups error installing SRS Data Connector

December 13th, 2011 DynamicsMSCRM Comments off

I set out to install the SRS Data Connector on the reporting server for my customer. In this situation, we are dealing with a hosted solution and the hosting company installed SRS. Installing the connector is normally a simple task.

Below is the error I received when installing the SRS Data Connector.

Microsoft.Crm.Setup.SrsDataConnector.AddWindowsIdentityToPrivilegeGroups failed.
Name translation: Could not find the name or insufficient right to see name. (Exception from HRESULT: 0×80072116)

When you click to view the log file you will see the account name that is trying to be added. Below are the lines from the log file just before the error

”11:54:59| Info| Executing Install action: Microsoft.Crm.Setup.SrsDataConnector.AddWindowsIdentityToPrivilegeGroups
11:54:59|Verbose| Adding account rssvr\sqlserverrssvr to group LDAP://…”

The SQL Reporting Services (SRS) were installed and running using a local computer user account on the SQL server. That account could not be added to the necessary Active Directory group because it was not a domain account. I reconfigured SRS to run using a domain account. I then attempted to install the SRS Data Connector again and successfully installed it.

MS CRM 2011 Online: Custom Reports Fail after Upgrade

May 21st, 2011 DynamicsMSCRM No comments

With CRM 2011, custom reports now look for read permission on the “Entity” and “Field” entities. IF you apply those permissions to the user, they will be able to run the report. The “Entity” and “Field” entities can be found under the customizations tab in the Security roles.

If the Network Service Account is not used as the Log On As for the Sql Reporting Service you will need to add permissions to the Config and Organization databases for the selected Log On Service User.

- On the Microsoft SQL Reporting Services server, click the Start button, and thenpoint to Administrative Tools, and then click Services.
Locate the SQL Server Reporting Services service and note the value that is listed in the Log On As column.

- Grant the appropriate account permission to access the Microsoft Dynamics CRM databases.

- If SQL Reporting Services and the SQL Server databases are installed on the same server and the account identified in step 1 is Network Service, follow these steps:

- Start SQL Server Management Studio. To do this, click the Start button, and then point to All Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, and then click SQL Server Management Studio.

- Expand Security, expand logins, right-click Log On As User, and then click Properties.
Click User Mappings.

- Click to select the Organization_name_MSCRM check box, and then click to select the public check box and the CRMReaderRole check box.

Note The Organization_name placeholder is a placeholder for the actual organization name.

- Click to select the MSCRM_Config check box, and then click to select the public check box and the CRMReaderRole check box.
Click OK.
