The next button is disabled on IFD configuration wizard.

2019-03-11T22:25:16+00:00

The next button is disabled on IFD configuration wizard. Recently we experienced an interesting issue while trying to configure Internet-facing deployment using the Configure Internet-Facing Deployment Wizard on CRM Deployment Manager. After entering the domains for the specified Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server roles, we were on the page where we had to type the external domain but the Next button was disabled so we could not proceed on. Cause: After running the SQL Profiler traces, we were able to find the root cause. For some reason, the NVarCharColumn value of ExternalRelyingPartyPassiveIdentifier in [MSCRM_CONFIG].[dbo].[FederationProviderProperties] was incorrect. Instead of the external domain URL, the value was uri:ifdMicrosoftCRM… Solution: We did update the field value be to the external domain URL e.g. https://auth.contoso.com and the next button became enable Again.

How to Re-Send Failed CRM E-mails in bulk

2019-03-11T22:23:14+00:00

I recently had a customer report an issue that CRM e-mails were failing to send out of Microsoft CRM.  We were able to isolate the issue down to an Exchange issue by using the “Test Access” button in the E-mail Router Configuration Manager.  The Exchange Admin fixed the issue and then we were able to successfully “Test Access” and new e-mails were sending out of CRM successfully again. The outstanding problem was that there were 700+ e-mails that had went to a Failed status because they had reached the re-try limits to send e-mails out of Microsoft CRM.  You could go into each e-mail individually and click “Send” and it would go back into a Pending Send status and the e-mail router would pick it up and [...]

How to find which Active Directory security groups belong to your CRM deployment.

2019-03-11T22:19:58+00:00

Have you tried to locate the Active Directory security groups that belong to your Dynamics CRM deployment only to find results like this? First off, why would you ever get results like this?  Dynamics CRM 2011 installs 4 Active Directory Security Groups (PrivReportingGroup, SQLAccessGroup, ReportingGroup and PrivUserGroup) by default per deployment.  Some people think this is per organization, but that is not correct.  No matter how many organizations you have in a CRM deployment, you will only have 4 security groups per deployment in CRM 2011.  So, you could have this many groups because you have several CRM deployments installed in this domain.  CRM 4.0 also used similar AD security group names, so there may be some left over from old 4.0 deployments or even failed CRM [...]

Performance for CRM 2016 Service Pack 1 and CRM Online 2016 Update 1

2019-03-11T22:18:39+00:00

The Microsoft Dynamics CRM team has been testing the performance of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 Service Pack 1 (SP1) (version 8.1) hosted on Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines. The goal is to establish a baseline for performance on CRM 2016 SP1, using Azure IaaS infrastructure with premium storage. The scenarios we have targeted involve thousands of users accessing their environment concurrently, every few minutes, with various workloads designed to simulate production environment. In this new baseline, we are testing performance against a SQL DB running on VM (Azure GS5 SKU). The detailed configuration, topology, optimizations, data profile, and test workload as well as lessons we learnt along the way on how to really get your Microsoft Dynamics CRM deployment tuned, will be published soon. The upcoming publication will [...]
