This post is part of the Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release series where I am going hands on with the new version of Microsoft Dynamics GP.
With the fixed version of the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP downloaded, run the setup utility from the downloaded Gp 2018 R2 file. Accept the terms of the License Agreement:
This is not a Multi-tenant Configuration, so simply click Next:
For the server hosting Microsoft Dynamics GP, enter the full SQL Server Instance name in the Server Name field and confirm the Dynamics GP System Database name; select an authentication method and click Next:
Check the install folder location and click Next:
You can change the Dynamics Security Data Store, but it is recommended to leave it set to SQL Server; click Next:
Enter the Server Name of the SQL Server which will host the Web Services security database and check the Database Name; click Next:
A popup warning will be display, this is only warning you that the database doesn;t exist and will be created; click Next:
Enter the details of the Windows Domain account which will run the service and click Next:
If you need to change one of the default ports, mark the checkbox and do so, and then click Next:
If you are using the web client, mark the checkbox and supply details of the GP Configuration Database and the SQL Server instance hosting it and click Next:
Click Install to begin the installation of the web services:
Once the installation is compelte, click Exit; the Run Configuration Wizard checkbox will be marked by default, but you need to unmark this box:
You now need to run the downloaded Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release x64 and x86 Environments – patch only 18.2.1013 which will apply the October 2019 patch to the installed web services. This installer is a silent one so won’t appear to do much, but will apply the patch file.
Once this is finished, we can configure the Web Services for use, which I will cover in the next post.
