Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, codenamed “R8″

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, codenamed “R8″


Today Microsoft announced what’s going to be in their next service update for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, codenamed “R8″, under the headline: CRM Anywhere.

The R8 service update is expected to be available Q2 2011 and is built on six broad themes: Mobility, Browser Flexibility, Social, Industry Templates, SQL Server 2012, Certifications.

Mobility
Microsoft will be launching a new product, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Mobile, which will enable CRM Online, partner-hosted and on-premise customers with Internet-facing deployments to use CRM on up to three devices per user.

There will be native clients, which means offline support, on all the main mobile platforms: Windows Phone 7.5, iPhone & iPad, Android, BlackBerry. I haven’t seen any of the licensing details yet, but I understand that this is a subscription service (even for on-premise customers) for $30 per user per month.

Browser Flexibility
For years prospective customers have been crying out for multi-browser support and Microsoft has finally delivered! Once R8 hits your CRM server you’ll be able to access CRM using: Internet Explorer 7 or above on Windows 7, Vista and XP; Safari 5.1.1 or above on Mac OS-X or iOS5 ;Firefox 6 or above on Windows 7, Vista and XP or Mac OS-X or iOS5; Chrome 13 or above on Windows 7, Vista and XP.

Activity Feed Enhancements
In the Nov 2011 service update (codenamed “R7″) Microsoft released the new Activity Feeds feature which introduced some social enterprise features into CRM 2011. R8 introduces a series of enhancements to the Activity Feeds feature: like/dislike, enhanced filtering (e.g. @me, types of records I follow, record views), and an updated mobile activity feeds client for Windows Phone 7.5.

Industry Templates
Building on the work of Microsoft partners and its own consulting team, the Dynamics Labs will be releasing several industry templates into the Dynamics Marketplace. The first few templates will be: Wealth Management, Non-Profit, Health Sales Plans
Relationship Management for Health.

The templates will include data model customizations, dashboards, workflows and sample data. They’re designed to help customers in those industries visualise how Dynamics CRM can help their business, and speed up an implementation without necessarily being a fully-packaged vertical industry product.

SQL Server 2012
Microsoft’s own data centers have already been upgraded to SQL Server 2012 and the R8 service update bring official support for partners and customers wanting to upgrade their own deployments to SQL Server 2012. Additionally, there will be some new CRM features that make use of SQL Server 2012 new capabilities. For example: performance improvements, enhanced database recovery, next generation business intelligence (“Crescent”) such as pre-defined Power Pivot models, Power View reports, and time-animated reports.

Certifications
Certifications are critical to enterprise adoption and Microsoft has been working hard over the last year to ensure that its data centers and CRM Online service meets several important certification standards including: ISO27001, SAS 70 Type II, SOX, SSAE 16 SOC1, Safe Harbor, Data Processing Agreement, EU Model Clauses and HIPAA compliance (supported through Business Partner Agreements).

For More Information
Download the R8 Release Preview Guide from the Microsoft Dynamics CRM website:

Dynamics CRM 2011: Rename an Organization

Dynamics CRM 2011 : Rename an Organization


Step by Step Guide.

Here are Step by Step guide to renaming an Organization in CRM 2011.

Open the CRM 2011 Deployment Manager then select the Organizations node.  The list of organizations should look something like this:
rename-org-1
1. Highlight the selected Organization the click the Disable link.
You will be prompted to confirm that you wish to disable the organization:
image
2.  Select Yes.
Note: Remember that a Disabled organization can’t be accessed.
3. Click the Edit Organization link:
image
and the Edit Organization Wizard will be displayed:
image
You will notice that you can’t edit the Name field.  That’s the physical name of the CRM Organizational database and that can’t be changed once it’s created.
You can however, change the following:
  • Display Name
  • SQL Server
  • SQL Server Reporting Services URL
In this exercise, we’ll just be changing the Display Name.
4. Change the Display name field to the new name.
image
5. Click Next and the standard installation environmental checks:

Assuming you don’t encounter any errors, then click the Next button and you will be asked to perform one last verification before proceeding:
image
6. Click the Apply button.  The changes will be applied and again, assuming you don’t encounter any issues, you’ll see the following dialog:
image
7. Click the Finish button.
Back in the organization list, you will see the change you just made:
rename-org-2
8. The last step is to highlight the organization and click the Enable link to enable the newly changed CRM organization.

Conclusion

As you can see from the following figure, you’ll notice that the URL for the organization remains the same, but the Display Name has been changed:
image

Let me know if you have any issue in this.

Network Load Balancing (NLB) Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011


Network Load Balancing (NLB) Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011

Deploying Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 on a Network Load Balanced (NLB) server cluster is a supported way to get increased scalability and high availability performance from your CRM deployment.
Why load balancing?
Using NLB, you can cluster multiple Windows 2008 servers together.  It provides added scalability as you can easily add additional nodes to the cluster as your usage grows, and it provides high availability, because if one node fails, traffic will be routed to other servers in the cluster.
To learn more about configuring a NLB cluster in Windows 2008, see the NLB deployment guide at Technet.  Network load balancing is available in Windows 2008 R2, including Standard or Enterprise versions.
Installing Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 on a NLB cluster
Once your NLB cluster is configured, installation of Microsoft CRM is very similar to a non-clustered deployment.  The following is the process to deploy CRM on a two-node NLB cluster:
1.  Install CRM 2011 on the first node.  Choose create a new deployment.
2.  Install CRM 2011 on the second node, pointing to the existing deployment created in step 1.
3.  When done, CRM should be available from both nodes, as well as from the cluster url.
4.  On one of the servers open the Deployment manager.  On the right side actions pane, click properties, then go to the web address tab.  The URL’s in this tab will reflect the URL of the first node on which you installed CRM.  Update the URL’s to reflect the cluster URL.  This will insure that any references in the application, as well as plugins, point to the cluster URL, otherwise you may see cross-site script errors.
clip_image002
Now your NLB CRM cluster is complete, and users can access CRM, both in browser as well as Outlook, using the URL of the cluster.
It’s important to underscore, anything that you store on the server will need to be located on all nodes of the cluster—if you have any custom web pages that you embed in iframes, you will need to have them on both servers, and you will want to have consistent versions of these files on all servers.
Installing Update Rollups
 If you network load balance, you will want to be sure that you install the update rollups on each server in your NLB cluster
Let me know if you need help in this type of configuration.

Imran

“What are the requirements to run Dynamics CRM 2011?”

 “What are the requirements to run Dynamics CRM 2011?” 


Here’s the location of the actual Implementation Guide. Download the Microsoft_Dynamics_CRM_2011_IG.zip
file and extract it.What follows are the sections from the “Planning Guide” doc file (from around page 25). And remember: these are just the base hw/sw requirements – that is, what you need to have in place before you start installing. Obviously, the 64-bit Windows 2008/SQL 2008 requirement is a big jump for many organizations.



So…here are the hardware and software requirements to run the on-premise version of Dynamics CRM Server 2011:

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 hardware requirements

The following table lists the minimum and recommended hardware requirements for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 running in a Full Server configuration.

The Windows Server 2003 family of operating systems are not supported for installing and running Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Server.

Server virtualization

Microsoft Dynamics CRM servers can be deployed in a virtualized environment by using Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V or virtualization solutions from vendors who participate in the Microsoft Windows Server Virtualization Validation Program (SVVP). You must understand the limitations and best practices of server virtualization before you try to virtualize your installation of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. For information about Hyper-V, see the Microsoft Virtualization (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=145119) Web site.

Internet Information Services (IIS)

We recommend that you install and run IIS 7.0 or a later version in Native Mode before you install Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011. However, if IIS is not installed and it is required for a Microsoft Dynamics CRM server role, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server Setup will install it.

Microsoft SQL Server hardware requirements

The following table lists the minimum and recommended hardware requirements for Microsoft SQL Server. These requirements assume that additional components such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011, Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, Microsoft SharePoint, or Microsoft Exchange Server are not installed or running on the system.

Reporting Services (SRS) Client-Side Printing Issue


Reporting Services Client-Side Printing and Silent Deployment of RSClientPrint.cab ActiveX file.


RSClientPrint.cab is a Microsoft ActiveX control that provides client side printing for Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services reports.
The ActiveX control displays a custom print dialog box that supports common features with other print dialog boxes. The client-side print dialog box includes a printer list for selection, print preview option, page margin settings, orientation, etc.
Downloading and installing the ActiveX control RSClientPrint.cab requires administrator permissionson the client machine.
If a user runs a SQL Server Reporting Services report and if the toolbar is displayed, the user can click on the print buttons seen on the right side of the toolbar.
ms sql server reporting services toolbar
If the print command is being run for the report server by that user's client machine then the client request the RSClientPrint.cab download from the related Report Server. While downloading the ActiveX software the browser will promt the user whether the software will be installed or not considering the security issues. Again, it is necessary to note that administration permissions are required for downloading and installing the rsclientprint ActiveX. For RSClientPrint install, RSClientPrint.cab download is the first step in installing the ActiveX on IE browser.
install RS Client Print activex for reporting services print option

After the installation of the RSClientPrint is successfully done, the Print dialog box is displayed as shown below. You will realize that the Print options is very similar to standart Print dialog boxes that run on Windows systems including preview, number of copies, print range, printer selecting from available printers, etc.
sql reporting services print dialog box
Print Preview option for the Reporting Services report.
sql reporting services print preview with rsclientprint activex

rsclientprint.cab and rsclientprint install

In most companies the Information Technology policies do not grant the admin privileges to the end users. So the end users running on the client computers can not download and install the ActiveX print client file RSClientPrint.cab.
So it is a need for the IT departments to distribute this client side printing ActiveX control in order to support their clients to work with SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) without a problem.
You can find the file rsclientprint.cab on the Report Server bin folder. The Reporting Services Report Server folder can be on
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Reporting Services\ReportServer\bin folder for SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services and
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.4\Reporting Services\ReportServer\bin folder for SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services.
Actually for SQL Server 2005, the installation folder may vary due to the installed components of the SQL Server 2005. You can also find the ReportServer bin folder by openning the IIS Manager and then exploring the ReportServer (if installed with default settings) virtual directory.
Microsoft SQL Report Server and iis
If you extract the contents of the RSClientPrint.cab file you will see that the .cab file consists of the following files.
gdiplus.dll
RSClientPrint.dll
RSClientPrint.inf
RSClientPrint_1028.rll
RSClientPrint_1031.rll
RSClientPrint_1033.rll
RSClientPrint_1036.rll
RSClientPrint_1040.rll
RSClientPrint_1041.rll
RSClientPrint_1042.rll
RSClientPrint_1043.rll
RSClientPrint_1046.rll
RSClientPrint_1053.rll
RSClientPrint_2052.rll
RSClientPrint_3082.rll

For a silent deployment of RSClientPrint.cab, you only need to distribute RSClientPrint.dll file and the .rll files.
If you copy the files listed below under the folder C:\WINNT\system32 for client computers.
RSClientPrint.dll
RSClientPrint_1028.rll
RSClientPrint_1031.rll
RSClientPrint_1033.rll
RSClientPrint_1036.rll
RSClientPrint_1040.rll
RSClientPrint_1041.rll
RSClientPrint_1042.rll
RSClientPrint_1043.rll
RSClientPrint_1046.rll
RSClientPrint_1053.rll
RSClientPrint_2052.rll
RSClientPrint_3082.rll
Register the RSClientPrint.dll dll file by running the regsvr32.exe command on the command prompt shown as below.
c:\regsvr32.exe /s
c:\winnt\system32 \rsclientprint.dll

So, if a script or an MSI file that copies the listed files above and registers the rsclientprint.dll will be enough to deploy the Reporting Services Client Side Printing functionality.
