There is going to be plenty more to this VM and the CRM beta to work on as we learn more about this new release.
More Building Blocks are needed.
Using steps in the previous section make sure that the SharePoint websites are stopped. Also stop the SharePoint services below. This will dramatically speed things up.
Unpack the Beta SDK
Install the CRM 2001 SDK, using MicrosoftDynamicsCRM2011BetaSDK.exe
Double click and pick a folder to use. I chose C:\CRM2011BETASDK
Build the Plug-in Registration Tool
Open VS 2010
Open the solution in C:\CRM2011BETASDK\sdk\tools\pluginregistration
Debug the solution to make sure it works.
Enter the URL of your CRM website, and check Use Saved Credentials and click connect.
Click Connect again and you should see that the Plug-in Registration tool is working.
For testing purposes you can just run the copy out of the bin debug folder or put a copy on a folder on your desktop.
SQL Reporting Services ( Configure Data Source )
Now that CRM is installed we need to revisit Reporting services and configure the MS CRM_DataSource
Go to Reporting Services in Internet Explorer:
Click on MSCRM_DataSource. (obviously adjust the following for your organization name and server name )
- Change the Data source type to: Microsoft SQL Server
- Change the Connection string to: Data Source=W2008R2CRMDEV;Initial Catalog=CRMDEMO_MSCRM;Connection Timeout=60;Integrated Security=SSPI
- Click on Windows integrated security.
- Click on Apply
- Click on Test Connection
You should see: Connection created successfully. as shown below.
That wasn’t really impressive since this VM has almost no data in it, but there were no SSRS errors and that is the important part.
