MSCRMFETCH not working when connecting Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need to create custom reports in Microsoft CRM Dynamics Online 2015.

    We have Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2015 and I've installed in a local machine, SQL Server 2012 Standard with Report Server and BIDS. Then I installed  Report Authoring Extension so I view in Visual Studio MSCRMFETCH datasource.

    I create a new report and use MSCRMFETCH with this connection string: https://organization.crm4.dynamics.com/ but is not possible to connect. Appears this error:

    "Unable to connect to the data source ' DataSource1 '. MSCRMFETCH selected data extensión is not installed or can not be loaded."

    How can I fix this error?

  • I have not had much experience with online reporting but if you are trying to use SQL reports then you are out of luck since according to MS they are not supported.

    Perhaps the following link can help you in working out your problem.

  • Brother you should follow below steps:

    Got to Drive C->Windows->System32->drivers->etc->hosts(open this file)
    in end Add IP and server name
    save this file(if not saving then copy this file on desktop and then change and then replace it)
    open CMD:
    enter command: ping (servername)
