GP 2013 and 2015 GP Web Services "Exception message: The security object does not exist"

After moving the GPWEBSECURITY database for GP Web Services and running a repair we received the following error opening the Security Console:"Exception message: The security object does not exist. Missing Key: 25cc1a21-2cc4-4b13-a1c8-eea186fb688a"Turns out we ran the wrong repair.  DO NOT run the repair from the GP Web Services Configuration Console.  Instead, launch the GP Setup.exe from the GP installation media.  This will detect the existing install and give you the option to repair.I used information from the following link and updated it for the new web services that does not run in IIS:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/943949To determine the scopes in the ADAM database, use the Authorization Manager (Azman.msc) Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in to browse the database.

SSRS Report Builder "Application cannot be started, contact application vendor."

When trying to launch Report Builder you receive the error "Application cannot be started, contact application vendor." I did two things that seemed to of helpled. 1. Open SSMS and connect Server type "Reporting Services", Server name. Right Click the Server Name in Object Explorer and pick Properties. Under Advanced setting in the Reports section set the ReportBuilderLaunchURL to https://serverurl/ReportServer/Report/BuilderReportBuilder_3_0_0_0.appli.... 2. Create a Web.config file in the C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSRS11.instancenameReporting ServicesReportServerReportBuilder folder containing the following <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <configuration> <compilation tempDirectory="C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSRS11.instancenameReporting ServicesRSTempFiles"/> </system.web> </configuration>

While trying to configure Management Reporter 2012 on a brand new install of GP 2015 I received the following error: "Couldn't retrieve the list of available databases: The connection attempt failed."

Personalize your CRM ADFS Sign-in page

Njevity and our partners wanted to brand the sign in page for our Microsoft CRM ADFS logon page. To do this we had to add a logo file and edit a couple of code and configuration files. On our ADFS servers we did the following: 1. Copied a our logo graphic file to c:inetpubadfsls (the root directory of the ADFS web page) 2. Made a backup copy of the web.config file in the same directory 3. Opened web.config with notepad 4. Found and un-commented the <add key="logo" value="logo.png" /> key 5. Edited the key to point to our logo file. 6. Saved and closed the web.config file. 7. Made a backup copy of c:inetpubadfslsMasterPagesMasterPage.master.cs 8. Edited MasterPage.master.cs 9. Change the line Page.TitleLabel.Test = PageTitle ; to Page.TitleLabel.Test = "Sign In to:"; 10 Change the line (so the logon page does not display the server name) STSLabel.Text = FriendlyName; to STSLabel.Text [...]

Error: The deployment has exceeded the maximum request length

While deploying reports to SQL Report Services you receive the error: "The deployment has exceeded the maximum request length allowed by the target server. Set the maxRequestLength= "20690" in the web.config file and try deploying again. This happen a lot because we forget to make a simple change. 1. On the SQL Reporting Server open the folder that SSRS is installed to. This is something like C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSRS10. The MSRS folders is what you are looking for. 2. Go to the Reporting ServicesReportServer sub directory. 3. Make a backup copy of the web.config file. 4. Open the original web.config file. 5. Find the line: <httpRuntime executionTimeout="9000" /> 6. Replace with: <httpRuntime executionTimeout="9000" maxRequestLength="30000" /> 7. Save the file. 8. Restart SQL Reporting Services. 9. Redeploy the reports.

Grant Microsoft Dynamics GP Users Rights to Administer User Account & Access

We recently were working with a Dynamics GP client that has hundreds of users. They needed to give their IT department the ability to administer GP users and user access without giving them the DYNSA password. We found no documentation on how to accomplish this. So by trial and error we came up with a solution: IN DYNAMICS GP (login as 'sa'): Created new Security Task: ADMIN_SYSTEM_USER Gave the Task access to: Category: System Product: Microsoft Dynamics Type: Windows Series: System - Activity Tracking Setup - Alternate/Modified Forms and Reports - Remove Security Setup Records - User Access Setup - User Class Setup - User Security Setup - User Setup Created new Security Role: USER_ADMIN and added DEFAULT and ADMIN_SYSTEM_USER tasks to it. Added Role to users security in GP IN SQL SERVER MANAGEMENT STUDIO: From Security: Added the following roles to SQL user accounts dbcreater securityadmin Added the following [...]

Dynamics GP DYNSA cannot grant users access to companies or company

We recently had an issue where DYNSA could not grant users access to companies. The User Access Screen would not allow DYNSA to check or uncheck access to any company. We found that DYNSA was not the owner of one of the company databases. Make sure DYNSA is the owner of the DYNAMICS system database and all Company databases. Run: EXEC sp_changedbowner 'DYNSA' against EACH GP database.
