● Ian Grieve ●  ● 4 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPWith the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 it’s time for a series of “hands on” posts where I go through the installation of all of it’s components; the index for this series can be found here.

With eConnect installed I can now install Integration Manager with both sets of adapters (Dynamics GP and eConnect).

To do this launch the setup utility from the installation media and, under Additional Products click on Integration Manager:

Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2: Install eConnect

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 2 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPWith the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 it’s time for a series of “hands on” posts where I go through the installation of all of it’s components; the index for this series can be found here.

The first of the companion products I am going to install, is eConnect. This one needs to go first as Integration Manager requires it to be installed if you want to install the eConnect Adapters.

Before you can install eConnect, you need to have added the MSMQ Triggers Windows Feature.

Run the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Setup Utility from the installation media and, under Additional Products, click on eConnect:

eConnect Adapter Error In Integration Manager

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 3 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPA recent upgrade of a client from Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 to GP 2015 R2 recently resulted in an issue being found when testing some integrations in Integration Manager:

DOC 68 ERROR: eConnect error - The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched.  To create the source, you need permission to read all event logs to make sure that the new source name is unique.  Inaccessible logs: Security.

The problem was a fairly simple one in that the eConnect service account did not have the necessary permissions; a very similar issue to the one I blogged about in March 2013.

The solution is to add the service account to the Local Admins group; instructions are in the post I linked above.

eConnect Incoming Queue In Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 Does Not Work

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 4 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPI did an upgrade of a client from Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 to Dynamics GP2015 recently and encountered a problem with eConnect.

This particular client uses the eConnect incoming queue to integrate journals and payables invoices into Dynamics GP from a housing management system.

After installing eConnect and configuring the incoming queue I set about doing a test to ensure it was working.

Unfortunately, it didn’t.

Messages Submitted To eConnect Disappearing

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 1 Comment   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPI had an issue to deal with for a client recently where messages submitted to eConnect were no longer appearing in Microsoft Dynamics GP. I did the usual things of checking the Windows Event Log and ensuring that the two eConnect services were running.

One item I tried was to submit a test message to eConnect which worked fine; so it worked for the perfectimage user I was logged in as, but no-one else. I eventually found the answer in the Properties of the econnect_incoming queue:

eConnect_incoming Properties

The permissions for the perfectimage account (Full) were still configured correctly, but, somehow, the Send Message permission on Everyone had been removed. Once this setting had been added back, people were able to submit messages to the queue without further problem.

Integration Manager eConnect Incorrect Address Or SOAP Action

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 4 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPI was recently creating an integration for a client to load some Purchase Orders into Microsoft Dynamics GP using Integration Manager. I added the source and destination adapters and then did the destination mapping. However, when I tried to run the integration I got the following error message:

DOC 1 ERROR: There was no endpoint listening at net.pipe://localhost/Microsoft/Dynamics/GP/eConnect/EntityOperations that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnterException, if present, for more details.

Resolving A Problem With The eConnect Integration Service Not Running

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 5 Comments   ● 

While I was working on the series of posts for how to install the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP, I encountered a couple of problems which I thought it might be worth covering in this and the next post.

The first was to do with the eConnect Integration Service which is installed as part of the install of Web Services. The basic problem was that the service was not running;
