Dynamics CRM Installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I am working on Dynamics CRM 2013 Installation. And In our installation we are using pre-created Ad Groups.

    So we have created a new config file with OU details and installing using command prompt.

    but on installation we are getting a issue 

    System.Exception: Action Microsoft.Crm.Tools.Admin.CreateDatabaseAction failed. ---> System.IO.IOException: The network name cannot be found.

    so is there any possible fix. Kindly suggest.

    Thanks in Advance.

  • Hello,

    Seems that you've provided unreachable SQL server name in your config file. Recheck it please.

    <Groups AutoGroupManagementOff="false">
        <PrivReportingGroup>CN=PrivReportingGroup,OU= CRM,DC=sales,DC=contoso,DC=com</PrivReportingGroup>

  • Recheck following article that describes installation of CRM using config file - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh699830.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

    As far as I understood there is no way to do partial installation - something with config file something manually so you will have to choose one of 2 ways - either full manual installation or full installation using config file.
