Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Fabrikam sample company is deployed via GP Utilities. Log into it using the sa account and progress through to the Additional Tasks. In the drop down list select Add sample company data and click :

Additional Tasks

Enter the Sample company database name or accept the default of TWO and define the location of the Data and Log files which for my test system I have set to the C:.

For a live server the data and logs should always be on separate physical drives.

Database Setup

Choose whether or not to install the Lesson Users. I egnerally don’t, but I understand they don’t take up a GP user licence so there can be a benefit to installing them when you’re loading the sample company:

Create Sample Users

Check your selections and click Finish on the Confirmation stage to proceed with the install:


After the deploy of the sample company is finished, you’ll be prompted to choose whether to install the BI tools. I’ve marked the Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services reports and Microsoft Excel reports and data connections:

The settings in the next stage are defaulted in from the initial install of the Microsoft Dynamics GP server:
