CRM 2015 for Outlook deployment (silent installation), not picking up the adress in answer file RRS feed

  • Question

  • I´m deploying CRM 2015 for Outlook plug-in with ConfigMgr 2012 system. The installation process goes fine, but at the Outlook startup, CRM asks for Organization and http adress and that´s the problem here.

    I have Default_Client_Config.xml inside the package which looks like this:

    <Deployments>
    <Deployment>
    <DiscoveryUrl>https://xxx.crmX.dynamics.com</DiscoveryUrl>
    <Organizations>
    <Organization IsPrimary='true'>XXX</Organization>
    </Organizations>
    <CEIPNotification>false</CEIPNotification>
    </Deployment>
    </Deployments>

    Any idea what I´m doing wrong?

  • Are you sure that you used the discovery URL for your CRM 2015 system?

    You can double-check in the CRM web application at Settings | Customizations |  Developer resources.

  • Is the DiscoveryUrl the same setting/option, which in manual installation would be asked during the first Outlook start? I believe it is the adress in the CRM cloud, what our organization will use. Problem is that I have no clue, how the CRM works, what is discovery etc. I just was told to create an silent package of the installation and deploy this.

    I gone through https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh699665.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396 and if I understood correctly, this adress should be set during ConfigWizard. There is an option to do this also silently, but does this mean it cannot be set during the installation (at once)?

    So, simply asked, is it even possible to configure this URL during installation phase or not?

  • The URL is not necessarily the same is used in Outlook. Log in to your CRM and navigate to Settings | Customizations and click Developer Resources. The discovery service URL for your organisation will be shown there.

    And to your last question, yes it is.
