Over the last couple of posts, I have installed and configured the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP, it is now time to verify that they are working correctly; there are four items I’d recommend checking.

Firstly, open the Services applet from Computer Management and make sure the Microsoft Dynamics GP Service Host is set to a Startup Type of Automatic and that the service is Running:

Over the last few posts, I have covered the installation of the web client as a scale-out deployment.

If you’re ready to install the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP then launch the setup utility and, under Additional Products, click on Web Services Runtime:

With the web client installed and configured, it is time to test to make sure it works correctly.

Open your preferred web browser (I am using IE11 not because I prefer it, but because it is the only one installed on my test machine.

If you did this while installing the Microsoft Dynamics GP desktop client, you do not need to do this step now (provided of course that the username and password you set while installing the web client match what you set when installing the desktop client.

To configure (or manage) the Web Client SQL Sever Login, launch GP Utilities and log in using the sa or other user account with security admin permissions:
