CRM and Active Directory RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just to be sure, can someone please help me with this question:

    I have a migration from CRM online to CRM 4 on-premise and we have only the license for workgroup server with 5 licensed users.  We are moving from 11 users and are consolidating the less important users into one user.  The sales team(3) each have their own user and the admin user, plus the consolidated user bring me up to the 5 user limit.

    The question is, how can these consolidated users log into CRM on-premise with different credentials than their active directory windows login?

    For example, I have user#1 logging into windows as "johndoe" and they need to log into CRM as "consolidatedusers", and user#2 logging into windows as "ronald" and they need to log into CRM as "consolidatedusers" as well.  I will have 6 people using "consolidatedusers" in CRM and they all have different windows active directory logins.

    I know it would be a non-issue if I were to go with Enterprise version, but that is not a possibility at the moment. 

    If you want to reach me outside this forum to deliver some advice or info, please contact me at cracicot@oak.ca

    Thanks!

  • HI
    use only the webclient.

    Do not add the crm website under trusted sites with "automatically log in with current user name and password"
    add it with prompt for username and password.
    they will have to enter the details when ever they want to access the crm system.

    CRM licenses is named user-based not concurrent.

  • Hi cracicot,

    you can run CRM in Intranet Zone and Trusted zone but in this case you have to store the user credentials as network password in the local User Settings. Normally there is the username and passwort stored when you get a logon dialog with IE and let this credentials remembers by windows.

  • Hi cracicot,

    Yes, correct. You can store something different from you Standard Windows credentials.
