Windows HPC Server 2008 RTMed!

crosspost from

2008/09/22 marked the RTM day of Windows HPC Server 2008, ranked top 23 of Top 500 as the Microsoft server for cluster computing. based on previous CCS server we made lots of improvements on the management abilities, also others. been a pilot tester started from beta early this year, I’ve seen the improvement and stability of this product. by using this RTM bits I managed to construct a 2-node cluster in less in 1 hour using Hyper-V VMs without any problems. I have to say, good job, HPC team!

try it and experience the next stage of computing, and start considering how to use those energetic computing powers, as a developer!!

also take a watch of the exciting cool intro video. what can I say… I just love technologies!!! :)

CRM 4 Outlook Client Lost Connection Problem…

crosspost from

Most of my testing CRM 4 environment were built upon Windows 2008 Server / IIS7 (both 32bit and 64bit) . The server and outlook client installation works fine without problems. started from this week I am making prototyping env. using Windows 2003 Server R2 with IIS6 and after done the installation, the Outlook client kept telling me “Lost Connection to CRM Server” popup messages in the notification area of Vista. the message said

“Unable to Connect. Lost Connection to Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Microsoft Dynamics CRM will restore the connection when possible. To stop retrying, right-click and select Sign Out”.

had a searching and found this thread about the solution. basically it seems that the outlook client agent just can not have access to CRM web server with proper permissions. by enabling CRM Website with anonymous acess right (via IIS management console). the annoying popup message disappeared. problem solved.

wondering if enabling annonymous access will affect the security of the CRM site, but since trying access from other computer using IE the form authentication poped out correctly, should be no problems doing settings in this way.

also wondering why in IIS7 there was no problems like this…

Enable CRM 4 URL QueryString Parameter Passing…

crosspost from

It seems worked while CRM 3.0 that one can pass custom variables via URL’s querystring and use it while form’s onload event. but it’s not worked in CRM 4 by default now. to be able to do this, you have to tune the registry.

Create a DWORD registry key named [DisableParameterFilter] under [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSCRM], set the value to 1 , and the do a iisreset, this enable the url querystring parameter passing under CRM 4.

some related discussion here. but still wondering what will be affected by disabling this “ParameterFilter”, since it seems not documented in any documents I’ve seen…
