Setup almost finished but it is not ending - Microsoft.Crm.Tools.Admin.ImportDefaultDataAction RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am struggling since 1 week to setup MS Dynamics 2016. I posted the issue to the community site but kit seems that it is not an active forum, the url is https://community.dynamics.com/crm/f/117/t/191418

    I am seeting it on new win 2k12 hyperV viurtual machine, remote sql is 2k12 , DB created,  the setup dialog  shows green bars almost at the end except the 1st one is not 100% finished, a line beneath it indicates "Microsoft.Crm.Tools.Admin.ImportDefaultDataAction".

    I fired sql profiler and see a lot of activity around the created DB, 9 hours later, I get the following message:


    MS Dynmics CRM Server Failed.
    MS Dynmics CRM Server Setup did not complete successfully
    Action Microsoft.Crm.Tools.Admin.ImportActivityFeedsAction Failed. Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding. The wait operation timed out


    Reading some threads, I increased RAM to 6G and gave the VM an additional processor, retried again and got the exact same bahvior

    Thanks for your help

  • Is this a new install or an upgrade?  I've performed several new installs and upgrades of CRM 2016 and had similar behaviour in that the last few actions seemed to take the longest. However for a new install it has not taken much more than an hour or so. For an upgrade, I had a 20G database upgrade (using Import Organization in the Deployment Manager of a 2015 database into a 2016 deployment) in less than two hours.

    What's the network connection between CRM and SQL like. You mention remote sql, I hope you don't literally mean remote as in over a WAN link. You really need good bandwidth between CRM and SQL if they are on different servers.

  • I forgot to mention that it is a brand new installation.

  • Well, the Hyper V server is certainly well spec'd. How many cores did you allocate to each of the VMs? I think you should have at least two on each.
