The System Requirements for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 are now available from CustomerSource (login required).
The stand out items for me is that support has been dropped for several older versions of Windows, SQL Server and Office:
- Windows XP all editions
- Windows Vista all editions
- Windows Server 2003 all editions
- SQL Server:
- 2008 all editions (including R2)
The only surprise on the above list is that some of the software listed as no longer supported was also listed as no longer supported with Dynamics GP 2013; in fact only SQL Server 2008 is new to the list.
Apart from the above retired software, the recommendations look pretty much the same as Dynamics GP 2013; Windows 8.1 and SQL Server 2014 have been added as supported.
A while ago I was setting up SQL Server for a test system, I obviously wasn't paying enough attention because when I tried to launch Microsoft Dynamics GP Utilities I received the below error:
Microsoft Dynamics GP Utilities: This login failed. Attempt to log in again or contact your system administrator

When Reporting Tools Setup is used t deploy the reports to SQL Server Reporing Services an error be produced if the default configuration of SSRS has not been amended (I thought I'd blogged about this error before, but when trying to find it to send the post to someone I couldn't find it).
The error produced is the following:
Microsoft Dynamics GP - The deployment has exceeded the maximum request length allowed by the target server. Set maxRequestLength="20690" in the web.config file and try deploying again.

I covered a wide variety of topics mainly around GP and related products as well as a few around SQL Server but I've not actually done a post on the "correct" installation process of installing SQL Server for use with Microsoft Dynamics GP (I highlight correct as I'm sure some people will disagree with how I am doing the installation).
With the release of Microsoft SQL Server 2012 I thought it was time to rectify this. I am going to be installing the Enterprise Edition of Microsoft SQL Server 2012 but the process is the same for each of the versions. The install is being done as I usually do them on a VM for testing/demo purposes; I would pay more attention to security and the location of the log and data folders if this were being done on a production machine.
To install SQL Server, run the setup utility on the installation media which will open the SQL Server Installation Center;

I typically like to see rollups come out as they tend to fix bugs and add new features but yesterday I advised a customer to install rollup 1 for Management Reporter.
Hopefully, I can catch them first thing in the morning and get them onto rollup 2 instead, of which Sivakumar has just announced the release on the Dynamics Partner Technical Services team blog.
Rollup 2 can be downloaded from here (CustomerSource or PartnerSource login required).
This one adds support for SQL Server 2012 as well as other bug fixes and enhancements to the currency translation.
