PowerShell cmdlet Import-CrmOrganization RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am not able to import an organization via the PowerShell cmdlet Import-CrmOrganization. Here is more info regarding how I am using this cmdlet:

    1. Have a CRM database - to be imported - ready in SQL Server.

    2. I am myself a deployment admin

    3. I have provisioned multiple CRM orgs on this SQL Server without any problem. Just the cmdlet is not working.

    4. I have launched the PowerShell command prompt with Administrative permissions.

    Here is the error that I am seeing. I have tried UserMappingMethod of both ByAccount and KeepExisting:

    Import-CrmOrganization : The Deployment Service cannot process the request because one or more validation checks failed
    At line:1 char:23
    + Import-CrmOrganization <<<<  -SqlServerName "d-crmdb" -DatabaseName "Testblank_MSCRM" -SrsUrl "http://d-crmdb/ReportServer" -DisplayName "TestBlank" -Name "TestBlank" -UserMappingMethod "KeepExisting"
        + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Import-CrmOrganization], FaultException`1
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.ServiceModel.FaultException`1[[Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.Deployment.DeploymentServiceFaul
       t, Microsoft.Crm.PowerShell, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35]],Microsoft.Crm.Pow

    I have tried two versions of this command but both throw the exception above:

    Import-CrmOrganization -SqlServerName "d-crmdb" -DatabaseName "Testblank_MSCRM" -SrsUrl "http://d-crmdb/ReportServer" -DisplayName "TestBlank" -Name "TestBlank" -UserMappingMethod "KeepExisting"

    Import-CrmOrganization -SqlServerName "d-crmdb" -DatabaseName "Testblank_MSCRM" -SrsUrl "http://d-crmdb/ReportServer" -DisplayName "TestBlank" -Name "TestBlank" -UserMap "KeepExisting"

    Has anybody had success using the PowerShell cmdlet above?

  • Hi,

    have you also tried importing the organization using the Deployment Manager and was it successful?

    If the error occurs only in the Cmdlet, then I would suggest turning tracing on the CRM Server on, so that maybe you can see what the exact error is.

    In case you are not familiar with tracing, you can find some info here.

  • Are you able to Access Deployment Service , if not did you check XRMDeployment settings in IIS

    you need to check your CRM web server IIS settings and make sure XRMDeployment is not configured in Hidden Segments in IIS, Follow below steps to remove/add XRMDeployment setting in IIS

    •Open Internet Information Services(IIS) Manager
    •Expand Server on left navigation
    •Expand Sites on the Left Navigation
    •Click on Microsoft Dynamics CRM
    •Click on “Request Filtering” icon in IIS on right side window
    •Click on “Hidden Segments” tab on Request Filtering window on right side
    •If “XRMDeployment” exists then select “XRMDeployment” and right click on “Remove” and say “Yes” to remove “XRMDeployment” from Hidden Segments
