Mark Polino’s Weekly MS Connect Suggestion – Multi-Company Support In One Database

Microsoft DynamicsContinuing Mark Polino’s weekly This weeks is a vote on adding support for multiple companies within one database. This is the first of mark’s suggestions to vote on that I’m slightly sceptical of.

Generally, a second company is dealt with in a separate database when it is a separate legal entity. If it’s not then it’s handled within the account framework (i.e. the first segment is defined as the company code); I can’t really envisage the technical approach that might be needed for a third way. Perhaps it’s just a failure of the imagination and someone can enlighten me.

Microsoft Dynamics GP and Schrödinger’s Cat

Microsoft DynamicsOne of the points I make (repeatedly until I see a confirmation they’ve done so) to clients when implementing Microsoft Dynamics GP is that they need to make sure that a maintenance backup of the SQL databases and other resources are being made.

In some cases the maintenance backup is a once a night job, other clients have had one done every twelve hours with log backups made every hour. As long as a regular backup is being made I’m happy and stop nagging them.
