Create a new set of AD users...

Aug 21, 2007 at 6:29 PM
Could someone please give a bit more information on this step. I know AD is Active Directory but I am not exactly sure what I am suppose to do. By the way, I am testing this on the CRM VPC image.

Hi Cass,

I will try to help you.

1) The Active Directory Users and Computers section can be opened from

Start -> Administrative Tools -> Active Directory Users and Computers

2) You will see a domain, in example ""

3) Open that, until you see a folder called "Users"

4) Open this document " MS Dynamics CRM Manufacturing README Customizations and Sample Data Deployment ". Please go to page 4, Appendix 2, Manufacturing table. Remember to select the Manufacturing table, which is in pink bacground, not Municipal.

5) Create a user inside the "Users" folder, by just right click in the folder, and choose New -> User

6) Fill up the relevant details according to the Manufacturing table but make sure that the login name is exactly the same, such as "Eng_pm"

That's all, let me know if you have any difficulties.

Hadi Teo,

Thanks for the easy to follow instructions. It was much more straight forward then I thought.
