  • Hi,

    Setting a default organization feature has been removed in version Crm 2011.User's Default Org: when a user is added to an org for the first time in a deployment, the user's default org, and thus the org that is loaded by default when accessing http://server is set to this org. Any subsequent orgs the user is added to will not change this default org, unless it is deleted. The default org in this sense is a per user setting that cannot be modified.

    In order to change back org1 to the default organizaiton you have disable org2 and then delete it form Deployment Manager (it will be only deleted from the CRM not from SQL), acess default CRM Url (should ow accsess org1) and then you can import it back org 2into the CRM via Deployment Manager (keep existing user mapping)

    For further information or verification you may refer:http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en/crm/thread/13c5e381-8169-43c3-a18d-a32da5d91c5f

  • Hi,

    The default organization setting in the Deployment Manager actually sets a different value than the user's default org setting. The default org setting in the Deployment Manager was just there for backwards compatibility reasons with CRM 3.0 Since in CRM 4.0 we introduced the notion of multi-tenancy, CRM 3.0 requests did not specify the organization that they are trying to access. Therefore, the default organization was specified in the Deployment Manager so that CRM 3.0 requests would be serviced.

    This is no longer necessary in CRM 2011, hence the default org setting was removed.

    We have heard requests to expose the user's default organization (which is the organization that the user is routed to by default if the user does not specify the desired organization in the URL). For example say that the user types in http://servername, the URL will be changed to http://servername/UserDefaultOrg. The user's default org is the first org in which the user is created or it is changed in the event that the org is removed. We have not made this setting a supported setting to change at this time.

  • I have a server (CrmWeb1) setup with an initial org of 'blank' on port 5555. It has an SSL cert on the default port (443) as well. I then imported the production org. lets call it 'prod' I have setup a DNS entry so that from the outside, typing prod.corpname.com will redirect you to the IP of the server (CrmWeb1).

    However, when the request comes in, it automatically goes to the default org=> prod.corp.com translates to https://IP-address/ There is no place to put orgname. If I had an option to set the default org, I would use 'prod' and life would be great :)


    From the blogs, it sseems that I would need to set the default org for each user added to the application so that when they come, it automitically dispositions them to the correct org...not a good option...

    However, the only other option I see is to setup my SSL on something other than the default, let say '500'. I would then be able to redirect https://IP-Address/ to https://IP-Address:500/prod/ which should then work correctly. Is that a good workaround or am I missing something?
