You might have come across these errors during the installation of Dynamics CRM on the System Checks screen as shown below.

  • Open Computer Management.
  • Expand Local Users and Groups
  • Select Groups
  • Double click Performance Log Users and add those users into this group
  • Gp back to Dynamics CRM installation. Click Back on the System Checks screen and then Next
You should be good to go!

Can a user licensed with a CAL access multiple instances of Dynamics CRM?

The answer is yes!

As per Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 Licensing Guide, "A user or device licensed with a CAL may access any number of instances of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 or earlier versions running on the organization’s servers."

Integration of multiple Dynamics GP Companies to a single Microsoft Dynamics CRM Organization

We recently had to ponder upon this scenario to integrate multiple GP companies to single instance of Dynamics CRM organization. With some looking around I found a blood which gives you confidence that it can be done however, the implementer needs to be considerate.

Thehetz very nicely explains the 2 scenarios and their pros and cons.

I would ask you to have a look at the blog post by clicking here.

I'm still trying to get hands on an official Microsoft document that explains how this could be achieved, or will have to give it a shot and test it myself.

I'll keep you posted if and when I have something to share.
