MDGP 2013 R2 Feature of the Day: Assign An Item To Multiple Sites

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog started a series of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 Feature of the day posts the other day. As they did with the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day posts they are doing them as short posts containing a PowerPoint slide show. I am translating these from the PowerPoints into posts; you can find my series index here.

Implementing Fastpath’s Config AD: Prerequisites

FastpathIn this series of posts I'm going to take a look at the Config AD product from Fastpath which adds single sign-on to the Dynamics GP desktop client; you can find my series index here.

The prerequisites for Config AD are fairly simple:

  • Windows Active Directory
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP configured with companies and security roles
  • If Dynamics GP has already been implemented the Advanced SQL Server options on all users in Dynamics GP needs to be disabled

When I was configuring Config AD the last of the prerequisites caught me out as it was mentioned only in the Troubleshooting section of the documentation. It would have been helpful if this had been mentioned in the instructions or a prerequisites section. It was fairly easy to resolve once I knew what the problem was (I'll cover this in a later post).
