That’s right, changes are being made to the licensing model of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013; Business Ready Licensing (BRL) is being replaced by Perpetual Licensing (PL). While details are still being released, with many still in draft form, it looks like there will be two licensing levels; Starter Pack and Extended Pack.
One 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.

Today, on the Developing for Dynamics GP blog, David Musgrave continues his series of posts on the Support Debugging Tool which is definitely worth following.
The first post was on understanding logging modes and the second on controlling Support Debugging Tool Manual Logging Mode.
The series continues with a post on controlling Support Debugging Tool Automatic Debugger Mode.
In the last post I showed how the FRx menu can be renamed to show Management Reporter instead.
However, it is also a per user setting so would need to be done for each user created in Microsoft Dynamics GP who had access to Management Reporter.
To make the job a lot less onerous, I thought it might be useful to follow up with a SQL script to copy the FRx command customisations from one user to all others Continue reading “Replicate FRx To Management Reporter Command Customisation To Other Users”
The FRx Reporter tool is being retired very soon. It’s replacement, Management Reporter, has been available to all customers for a while and is the only option for new ones implementing Microsoft Dynamics GP.
