26.  Move CRM security group on AD?

As we know that CRM create 4 security group on Active Directory when it is installed.
Right know, i’m facing the situation that i need reorganize the Active Directory for the CRM deployment. Can i only “cut and paste” CRM security group into new Organization Unit without any problem with my CRM deployment? Or i have to re-install (backup&restore) the deployment?

Andrii Butenko • Hello, As far as I know there is only one supported way to do that – redeployment.

27.  Adding Multiple Users to Dynamics CRM 2011

I am involved in a deployment of Dynamics CRM 2011 for an organisation with over 2000 users. The “New Multiple Users” feature is useful here. All I have to do is to paste a list of usernames separated by semi-colons into the dialogue box.

However, this deployment is occurring in multiple releases, with each release delivering key functionality for one or more sets of users. Users are added with each release. Some of these users already exist on the system, and the system flags such usernames as errors/invalid entries.

The problem is that the system stops validating usernames in my list after it finds the first one. The ideal would be to for the system to identify all the invalid entries all at once, so I can edit them out of my list in one effort. My next trial should then be successful. Does anyone know a better way of doing this?

Answer:  You could use Powershell to script the addition of the users, as shown here:

Or, to offer even more control, you could add a user by calling the web service, perhaps parsing a csv file of users you wish to add, and outputting a csv of failed additions:


Answer 2:

yes, depend on need either client side (odata) , Server side code (service) or can use data import wizard (can eliminate duplicates too).

  >> I”d second Adam’s solution: why not use the built in data import?
You can export the XML template file easily, update it in Excel and then re-import it. It’s completely standard, doesn’t need developments or scripts and is easy to do.
