How to Upgrade On-premises Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 to 2016

Looking for help with upgrading your Microsoft Dynamics CRM system? We recently upgraded our Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 system to MSCRM 2016.

CRM 2015 Email Router Fix for KB3072333 Update

I recently installed KB3072333, which is labeled as “Update 1.1 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015”. Afterwards, a specific change to the Outgoing Email Router profile issued a 401 Unauthorized error in the event viewer. I found a fix and am posting it in the hope that it will help someone else! Specifically, the error prevents emails from actually being sent until this change has been fixed. The error looks like this: “System.Net.WebException: The request failed with...

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 Update

CRM 2015 was released by Microsoft at the very end of 2014. DMC typically tries to be on the latest and greatest version for two reasons. First, we can take advantage of all of the new features like cross entity search, security enhancements and enhanced business rules. Second, it helps our team better assist our current and future customers when they go through the same process. Because CRM 2015 is so new, there really isn’t too much documentation for installation errors and &ld...

Single Sign-on with Dynamics CRM External URL

Single Sign-on with Dynamics CRM External URL

Recently I was setting up an Internet Facing Deployment (IFD) for a new Dynamics CRM 2013 implementation. Luckily the process has not changed much since CRM 2011, and there are many blogs and even a whitepaper that cover the topic.  One of the biggest pain points is that the CRM claims based / IFD configuration publishes two access URLs, one each for internal and external use. The external url does not allow for windows integrated single-sign on, and the internal URL cannot be acces...

Changing the CRM Icon in Outlook
John Sullivan

Changing the CRM Icon in Outlook

At DMC, we have been using Microsoft CRM for quite some time.  The Outlook client makes using CRM much simpler and allows for many features to be readily accessible. It is easy to look up contacts, track emails in CRM, and see CRM tasks in the Outlook task bar, among many other great features. My one complaint was that emails tracked in CRM were displayed with a CRM icon:  This feature was nice, since it let me know when emails were b...
