Beyond SSDs - Testing an NVMe M.2 Drive

M2 Drive

For many years the hard drive was the typical bottleneck of any well-endowed computer. The first response to any complaint about a slow computer was "add memory" after which came the answer "sorry, the hard drive is slowing your down and unless you want to buy SCSI, your stuck." And then came the SSD drive and it freed us from the bottleneck, sort of... And then came the NVMe M.2, with a prosumer price, the speed are still unbelievable!

In Search of Silence

UIkit

I have always been a computer builder. I lit my first computer on fire in my teens (power supply overload). Most of the first computers were all about speed. Recently, I have had the desire to match speed with almost silent operation. The way to do it is with large surface fans spinning at lower speeds. If you have the money to spend, someone can design and build it for you, but I prefer the adventure.

CRM2016 on Windows Server 2016 : Windows Search

Today I tried to do a fresh install of CRM 2016 on Windows Server 2016. We are considering upgrading the CRM hardware at work and I wanted to try out a clean install on the new server version. Our existing server is a 2012R2 server and that install was the result of multiple upgrades.

I have been through the CRM install several times (between version 2011 and 2016). For the most part, it has always gone cleanly as long as your run it as a domain administrator. However this time, I ran into an error with Windows Search.

Sales Process Error after Dynamics 365 Upgrade

Dynamics 365 sales process error after upgrade

I discovered after performing the CRM2016 to Dynamics 365 upgrade on-premise that my sales process workflows were not appearing. After some research, I found that this is a known issue, but with no official fix yet. Some people suggested disabling the process and re-enabling it, but I got an error when I tried to disable the process. I created a copy of the process and was able to enable and disable it, but this would mean that I would have to reassign the process to all existing leads in the system.

After reviewing a forum post on MSDN, I found a solution, but their wasn’t many details. I managed to fix it using some of the information from that post, and wanted to share a more detailed post about the solution.
