Management Reporter Configuration – Part Of Domain Error


I am not sure how many would have noticed this error message. Just thought of sharing this with you all.

I installed Management Reporter 2012 CU7 on my machine yesterday night for some testing. I had not done this outside a network (being physically away from a domain) before, so never expected an error. But following error message popped up:

Snip20140106_4

 

My machine is already part of a domain. So above message was a bit confusing. Later I realised that I MUST be connected to my domain when the configuration process is run.

Which means the machine on which you are installing Management Reporter Server component CANNOT be physically outside the domain (even though it is already added to one) when you configure it.

This morning I restarted the configuration process and it’s done without issues. Interesting.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 – Reporting (By David Duncan & Christopher Liley)


I just added one more treasure on my kit, in the form of a new book called Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 – Reporting, written by David Duncan (I.B.I.S.) and Christopher Liley (I.B.I.S.), published by Packt Publishing.

I have started reading this book from today and hopefully in a week, I will be able to grab hold of the vast set of chapters.

To give you an overview of what is there inside this book: The book covers everything “reporting” in GP. From Report Writer reports to Smartlist to Excel Reports to SSRS to Analysis Cubes to Management Reporter. Every single thing about GP Reporting.

However, the book does not talk about two things:

1. Crystal Reports and the way you can access crystal reports from GP quite understandably because Crystal Reports is NOT supported out of the box by Dynamics GP. It can be used with the help some 3rd Party solutions, such as GP Report Viewer (from Flexible Solutions) or even a simple code piece written by any Consultant who knows GP, Crystal Reporting and .NET coding.

2. FRx, as this is already been replaced by Management Reporter. There is of course a section in this book where the difference between FRx and Management Reporter is explained.

I shall be writing a review of this book in a week’s time (hopefully). Just could not wait to tell you all that this book really going to be a great treasure for those who wants to understand how effectively GP data can be visualized and analyzed.

Until next post.

Management Reporter Features – Explained by Sandeep Walia


There are many articles across the Blogosphere on Management Reporter for MS Dynamics ERPs.

This one’s pretty good in terms of explaining the basics of MR. And also the points which would make Customers migrate to MR from FRx.

Read the article, Management Reporter For Dynamics ERP – An Analysis, on ERP Software Blog.

UPDATE (19JUN2010): The above link to the original article on ERP Software Blog, seems to be broken and not working.
