Dynamics GP 2010 Web Services Installation – The Security ID structure is invalid. (Exception from HRESULT:0x80070539)

 

I been trying to install the web services for one of my clients, they are running a complicated environment, clustered SQL Server environment over three servers and clustered Hyper-V server to manage virtualized web applications like Workflow and Business Portal.

We have installed the SharePoint Server Farm and configured the Load Balancer to manage the load balancing between servers and created web applications for both Workflow and Business Portal and then moved to the web services installation which was already installed on the production environment, unfortunately the installation never succeeded with the above error message.

I tried everything, reinstalled it more that 100 times with no luck, searched every where with no result where I realized that the web services cannot be installed on a multiple server environment which does not make sense.

Finally I have decided to select the same Web Services database of the production environment and it worked! Looks like the Web Services cannot be installed with more that security database which is logically right due to the complication of the security roles and tasks on the web services entities.

Next time do not waste your time and directly select one name for web services database!

Payment Document Management – Post Dated Checks

 

Few months ago, I have activated Payment Document Management module for one of my clients here in Jordan to manage their post dated checks, as they have around 200 post dated checks received daily!

The customer enjoyed working on the module and had their checks managed properly with a little limitation as below:

When you do a remittance, the system posts the bank transfer and journal entry per remittance and based on the remittance date, which make it a very hard task and might be undoable to do bank reconciliation by the end of the month.

In the normal business scenarios the customer deposits the payment document in the bank and will notice the effect the next day. However, the bank will include the payment in the statement ordered by the check due date and check by check, this makes it a very hard task to reconcile bank statement with GP specially when you have a big number of payment documents on daily basis.

After working on the module for a couple of months, they been unable to proceed and back to their old utility due to this limitation.

I wanted to share this limitation with the community to be aware that this cannot be done out of the box and would like to encourage you to vote on this to be implemented in the upcoming releases using CONNECT.

Microsoft Dynamics ERP Licensing Changes

I liked the way how Mark Polino posted about it in this post, checkout mark post below:

David Musgrave takes a look at Microsoft Dynamics ERP Licensing Changes.  I’m going to say that on a personal level, there are elements of the new licensing that I find to be a naked cash grab by MS. Customers screamed about the DCO licenses and rather than deal with customer anger, MS renamed them to make them sound more appealing. Accessing GP data with other tools should be covered by other licenses, the SQL CAL, the Office CAL, etc.There is no good reason to allow access other data in the same location with these licenses but not cover Dynamics data. Companies have already paid for access to this data, there is no reason for them to have to pay again.
