Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2: Web Client Prerequisites

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 was released on the 2nd October. In this series of posts, I’ll be going hands on and installing the majority of the components; some of them, such as Analysis Cubes for Excel, which are little used, I won’t be covering.

The series index will automatically update as posts go-live in this series.

Over the next few posts I’m going to install, verify and run the web client. In this series of posts, I am doing a single-machine deployment; this is whre all components are installed on the same machine; the other type of common deployment, is a scale-out deployment where there is a separate web server to client machines.

Back when the web client was introduced, I did a series on a scale-out deployment and a while later wrote a book on it. These posts are still largely applicable to the current version.

The prerequisites for the 2018 R2 web client are the same as 2018 RTM, so I’m linking back to the series I did in December 2017; following that series on the web client prerequisites before progressing in this series.

This post is for those people who skipped Microsoft Dynamics 2018 RTM; you might not be aware that the eConnect Incoming Queue bug which required part of eConnect 2013 R2 to be installed has been resolved.

For Dynamics GP 2018, you can uninstall all previous versions of eConnect and just install the new one.

Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2: eConnect Services and Permissions

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 was released on the 2nd October. In this series of posts, I’ll be going hands on and installing the majority of the components; some of them, such as Analysis Cubes for Excel, which are little used, I won’t be covering.

The series index will automatically update as posts go-live in this series.

With eConnect installed on the server there are some changes required to the services and permissions. As with the prerequisites, I am going to link back to the posts I did for the last Hands on series.

There are three changes which are required:

  1. Because the files being integrated this way are quite large, the receiceTimeout setting on the Service.config needs to be changed.
  2. The Incoming_Queue.config needs the ConnectionString and Incoming_Queue settings changed.
  3. The permissions on the MSMQ Incoming Queue need setting for Everyone.

As mentioned in the last post, on the eConnect Prerequisites, I have a number of clients who use eConnect for integration data into Microsoft Dynamics GP using the Microsoft Message Queue. This uses an eConnect installation on a server.

To install the server eConnect, log onto the server and launch the setup utility. Under Additional Products, select eConnect:

Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2: Install eConnect Prerequisites on Server

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 was released on the 2nd October. In this series of posts, I’ll be going hands on and installing the majority of the components; some of them, such as Analysis Cubes for Excel, which are little used, I won’t be covering.

The series index will automatically update as posts go-live in this series.

I have a number of clients using eConnect in different ways for integration. Several of them use eConnect via the MSMQ and Incoming Queue. Before installing eConnect on the server, there are two prerequisites which must be completed.

I’m linking back to the posts I wrote for the eConnect 18 Prerequisites series when Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM was released as there has been no change in this area.

The first prerequisite, is to set the service account as a local administrator on the server. Without doing this, the eConnect services will not start correctly.

Secondly, you need to install the MSMQ Triggers Windows feature. Without this, the Incomging/Outgoing eConnect queues cannot be installed.

Once these two prerequisites are met, you’ll be ready to install eConnect on the server.
