Merry Christmas

Today it's only 5 days left to Christmas. Personally my favorite holiday, spend time with family, eat (too much) and yes hopefully many presents :-)

Guess, the perfect opportunity for adding it as attribute to the contact entity, but guess CRM can wait a few days.... The funny thing is I have some silly routine I do every X-mas. If you know I like movies a lot, so I always watch at least 2 movies the first one is Home Alone (I & II) and definitely my number one: the Muppets Christmas Carol.

So I wish you all a Merry Christmas! And you should definitely watch the Muppets this year ;)

Oh no, not another Reporting Server issue

We got puzzled with some nice error when opening the reports. We had nice two server setup with application server (ms crm) en database server (sql & reporting server). Changes all things for trust for delegation on install/service account level, unfortunately we still got 401.1 error e.g. http unauthorised.

The trick was in the kerberos authentication, you should add dword to registy (hkey_local_machine/software/microsoft/mscrm/... add NTLMForSQLRSServer with value 1 and everything started to work.

So just follow these steps:

1. On the Microsoft Dynamics CRM server, click Start, click Run, type regedit , and then click OK.
2. Open the following registry key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\MSCRM
3. Right-click MSCRM, point to New, and then click DWORD value.
4. Type NTLMForSQLRSServer .
5. Double-click NTLMForSQLRSServer , type 1 , and then click OK.

So maybe this will also help also in your case, but yet you know what I gonna say.... no guarantees
