CRM 2011 Partner VM - "The Security Support Provider Interface (SSPI) negotiation failed." when connecting locally. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. I just downloaded the Partner VM for CRM 2011 and ran it as-is. This VM obviously runs without certificates and is thus just HTTP, but I cannot connect to the CRM through it's discovery or organization services.

    I can visit the CRM in a browser and I can see the webservice definitions, but I cannot connect through its webservices. Now I would understand if this was my own code, but even the pluginregistration from the CRM 2011 SDK cannot connect, but only returns the following exception message:

    "SOAP security negotiation with 'http://crm2011/CRM/XRMServices/2011/Organization.svc' for target 'http://crm2011/CRM/XRMServices/2011/Organization.svc' failed. See inner exception for more details."

    The inner exception message is:
    "The Security Support Provider Interface (SSPI) negotiation failed."

    Now I would think that the official CRM 2011 VM would be properly set up, but I guess that's too much to ask. Does anyone have any pointers how I can get this to work? Ideally I would like to be able to connect from cross-domains so that I can just use it as a server to test against from my development machines, but if that's too much to ask I just need it to be able to connect to itself.

  • Alright. Here was my problem; the identity for the CRM Website's App Pool (CRMAppPool) was set to Contoso\CRM_Services, which apparently was incorrect. I changed it to the Contoso\Administrator account and it now works. Why they would publish a VM that fails to do such a crucial feature is beyond me, but nevertheless - there's your answer if you're experiencing the same problem.
