MS CRM 2011 Beta - You have already imported and upgraded this organization and cannot perform this operation again.

This is new in MS CRM 2011.

You will receive the above error in MS CRM 2011 when you try to import an Organization of MS CRM 4.0.

This is because in CRM 2011, you cannot import the same CRM 4 org more than once into a CRM 2011 deployment. The Organization GUID will not change. This is by design.

Hope this helps.

MS CRM 2011 Beta - DeletionStateCode - No longer available.

Finally it's time to say good bye "DeletionStateCode" attribute. The attribute has been removed from all entities.

Now, it is hard delete. If a record is deleted, it would be removed from the entity table.

Happy purging !!!!

MS CRM 2011 Beta - Invalid User Authorization

You might see below [Invalid User Authorization] error when trying to access / connect to Online CRM 2011.

The work around is, sign out of the currenyly logged in Windows Live ID from all other browser sessions. Once you signout, try to access your Online CRM, now it will prompt for Sign in details.

As of now Online CRM 2011 can't handle this. Hope this will be resolved in RTM by Microsoft.

Hope this helps.

MS CRM 2011 Beta - The NetworkCredentials provided were unable to create a Kerberos credential.

You might get the below error when trying to create a token for MS CRM 2011 Beta organisaion :

The application terminated with an error.
The token provider cannot get tokens for target ''.

The NetworkCredentials provided were unable to create a Kerberos credential, see inner exception for details.
This is quite possible when you CRM is on Domain A, and you are trying to create a token from Domain B.

it's not going to work in beta currently. I believe there is an open bug for this. Hope it will get resolve in RTM.

Install MS CRM 2011 Beta on Windows 2008 SP2 or Windows 2008 R2?

I think everybody is consfuse when choosing the Operating System. So here are the facts:

1. You can choose either Windows 2008 SP2 or Windows 2008 R2.

2. But When usingWindows 2008 R2 you need to consider especially this one:
    Import organization fails with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 organization database when running on Windows Server 2008 R2.

To work around this issue, install Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Server on a computer that is running the original release of Windows Server 2008, and then try the import organization operation again.
