I recently tried installing CRM on a Windows Server 2008 machine. I ran into a couple issues described below, along with their fixes. I threw these notes down, so I may be missing something. But hopefully, it'll be a start for anyone setting this up on Server 2008.
The migration error:
Make sure that the application pool that Reporting is running under is in Classic Mode.
I fought with this one for a while. There are a couple of things you'll need to do:
- Make sure that all authentication modes except for "Windows Authentication" is disabled.
- Make sure that the App Pool user is a local admin on the machine
Unable to connect to the reporting service:
You'll need to open the RSWebApplication.config file located in the ReportsManager folder. Remove the value from the <ReportServerVirtualDirectory> field and enter the full url without the ending / in the <ReportServerUrl> field. For example: <ReportServerUrl>http://reports.contoso.com/ReportServer</ReportServerUrl>
When I tried installing CRM 4.0 I got the following error during installation:
"Action microsoft.crm.setup.server.rsconfigaction failed. The specified path is not a metabase path."
The solutions is addressed in the following KB article:
Specifically, you need to add the <reportserverurl> configuration entry. Very similar to what we had to do earlier with reporting services.
