CRM 2011 - Unable to open Deployment Adminstrators module in Deployment Manager console RRS feed

  • Question

  • Each time I attempt to open up the Deployment Administrators module in the CRM 2011 Deployment Manager, I am receiving the following errors.  I can open the Organizations and Servers modules with no error.  What could be causing this error for the Deployment Administrators module?

    MMC snap-in error 1

    Here is the text in the unhandled execption window:

    at Microsoft.ManagementConsole.Node.set_DisplayName(String value)

       at Microsoft.Crm.Tools.Admin.SystemUserListView.OnBuildSubnodes()

       at Microsoft.Crm.Tools.Admin.BaseMmcListView.RefreshSubnodes()

       at Microsoft.ManagementConsole.Executive.SnapInRequestOperation.ProcessRequest()

       at Microsoft.ManagementConsole.Executive.Operation.OnThreadTransfer(SimpleOperationCallback callback)

    After clicking OK button:

  • Check if you are a member of all the local and AD-Groups you need to be a deployment administrator.

  • Yes, I have local admin rights on this server, and I have been set up as a deployment administrator.  I am able to find my CRM id information in the MSCRM_CONFIG.dbo.SystemUser table, which confirms that access.  My ID wasn't originally in the table, so once I was added to the Deployment Administrator group, that information was populated in the database. 


    Also prior to gaining both of these permissions, I received different errors that prevented me from getting to the point of accessing the MMC snap-in.  At this point, I can access the snap-in, access two out of the three modules, however, the most important one for me right now is the Deployment Administrators module.
