IT and Networking Support for Dynamics GP Great Plains ERP

Consider making initial server hardware selection executions, often translated for installing and configuring Windows Small Business Server, Installing Microsoft Exchange, Dynamics GP MS SQL Server Reporting Services Web Installation and Exposure Reports, Dynamics GP Business Portal, and Sharepoint Application, and, of course, installing Microsoft SQL Server, configuring maintenance schedules, including database backup. All of these issues need to be resolved, and your IT support consultant should be familiar with all or some of these tools and technologies. In this post we give you an overview of Dynamics GP network support options:

  1. Hardware selection for initial Dynamics 365 Consulting Calgary GP Great Plains installation or version upgrade. You should check with your Great Plains VAR and ask them to provide you with the recommended server and workstation hardware and software settings. For each version of the GP, Microsoft Business Solutions has special recommendations. Pay special attention to SCSI hard drives and their configuration as this appears to be a significant cost of server hardware and results in data storage reliability
  2. SQL Server. We assume that you are in Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and install dynamics gp version 10.0. Read the recommended SQL maintenance plans for Dynamics GP databases. Here you can not just follow the instructions, it is necessary to develop the strategy. For example, if you have a lot of GP transactional traffic and need a time (you will need to change the company database to the full recovery model), you can configure the population process with the following series of transaction logs backups. These questions may be trivial for the experienced MS SQL Server DBA, but if you own a small business, you should know at least the right questions to ask in Network Consultant selection
  3. New installations for GP users. If you choose to host the Dynamics GP server as well as the GP client (in Citrix or Terminal Server), you do not need to install a new GP client application. However, here you need the correct installation of printer drivers on the Terminal Server host computer to allow users to print GP invoices and reports locally in the office. If you install THE GP on the network locally , you can decide to create the GP installation package and automatically release a new update or GP service pack
