"..Unnatural work produces too much stress.."

Microsoft Great Plains – Marriage between GP Web Client & Microsoft Azure

Snip20150121_5

So here we go, after we have gone through a months of nightmares, here are some of the guideline for how to deploy GP 2015 web client on Microsoft Azure platform. The test starts with GP 2013…and ended up 2015. Now its working satisfactory…

History of an ERP system

The Dynamics GP product was originally developed by Great Plains Software, an independent company located in Fargo, North Dakota, which was run by Doug Burgum. Dynamics Release 1.0 was released in February 1993. In late 2000, Microsoft announced the purchase of Great Plains Software for $1.1 billion. This acquisition was completed in April 2001.

August 2014: Now that we plan to start migrating from GP 2013 Web Client, we got an idea for moving our ON-PREM server to a proper DR site….to dream this solution; its beautiful…to implement, its a pain…

Microsoft Azure came into picture…its not just that, we have no guideline for how to slice and dice this environment to host Microsoft GP from Azure….along with Microsoft CRM Online integration. i did ask our GP community to help me..but no reply

Its a major task….and our nightmare starts….Team Spirit at its best Myself, Vaidy and Shiyas discussed our plan and submit to our Executive Director Jimmy @ Elcome International, who is there for all the help…approved our plan to go ahead.

Snip20150121_2

Planning checklist started….

  • All the Crystal reports to be converted to SSRS reports
  • Get ready to go with existing GP code to be compatible with GP desktop/web client
  • CRM should be Microsoft Online CRM
  • ERP has to be there at Microsoft Azure
  • Azure VM needs to setup…..
  • Integration between our online CRM & Microsoft GP using Scribe
  • Instead of Terminal session, use Remote Apps.
  • DNS propagation and IIS/Certificate installation
  • User training and new environment adaptation…
  • Discuss any other technical glitch for moving our critical business application cloud go-live on halt…
    • there you go….
    • Once we move our server to cloud…we are totally depend on our ISP internet connection. We have only one internet connection, 100Mpbs. Once this is down, our business halt….so we need another internet connection., that also from a different switch/route from ISP. The reason is because if the one network is down, the other network will server the purpose. What if whole internet is down? We have planned for a 4G modem route; also from 2 ISP data SIM….If this is also down, We have a backup link from Satellite to serve the purpose…but this is the last option.

So lets start moving our PAWN….boarder has been drawn…deadline has been set….

First thing first….Azure slice…We have done quite a lot of mistakes, while provisioning the SQL server…below was the primary configuration we deployed. (This was done, when Remote App @ Azure is still under preview)

  • What machines did you select, who did the sizing for you.
    • SQL Server Azure Machine Type: A7, 8core, 56GB RAM
  • Server Configuration Window Server 2012 R2 64bit with SQL 2104
    • Terminal Server (For users to access GP Client): Azure Machine Type: A7, 8core, 56GB RAM
    • Fresh Installation on Azure: ZONE: East Asia
  • How did we deploy your instances.
    • Details as mentioned above
    • Sizing: There are no documet support received from Microsoft/Partner, at this stage, so we did it ourself
    • We have raised the questions to different product blog platform from Microsoft and no response so far
  • What are the total concurrent number of users for each?
  • Terminal Server users: 40
  • Great Plains users: 60

Build number at the time of this test (September 2014): GP 2013 R2 – 12.00.1745

Testing started….

Connecting to the server took a very long time from Web Client. Rendering issues of each window…Lookup issues

Done an installation of windows client as in Dynamics GP client on-premise, then we did a testing with Dynamics GP client installed on 4 machines on-premise. These clients connected to Azure ERP (database) server. Below were the observations:

  1. Performance in terms of transactions lookup and entry was slower than Azure Terminal Server setup.
  2. Posting transactions took more time than desired.
  3. Windows rendering was not bad like it was in Azure TS setup, but field to field traverse within a window took a bit longer than on-premise TS and Azure TS setup.

October 2014: Testing still in progress and we have moved multiple scenario as to

  • Web client only – 40 users from different region
  • Web Client and GP desktop client – 20 users from the office only

Still no sign of user experience improvement…we have decided to call Microsoft Centre of Expertise for help….

Performance issues may occur because of the Datacenters latency.  This link will help you identify the latency and what is the closest datacenter to your location.

November 2014:

they are in…..done couple of testings on the existing scenario…

OUR LEARNING CURVE….with them

Best practice to consider while doing SQL server provisioning on Microsoft Azure… (I’m considering here only my region..each admin should consider their region when it comes to azure regional datacenter selection)

So here are the facts, which needs to be taken care while provisioning the SQL server on Azure for ERP data platform. Click here to read.

Monday, November 24, 2014

As per our tests today we can conclude the following:

  1. Performance is good with 1 and 6 users test.
  2. Posting, rendering and loading are Ok
  3. No bottlenecks noticed on the RS and SQL machine in terms of Memory and Processor
  4. We noticed higher activity related to the Network and Disk I/O’s which also was in the normal range
  5. Also Nearest DC is East Asia and latency is within accepted range
  6. System is configured properly.
  7. We also found that A7 may not be needed as there are a lot of unused resources.

Based on that we discussed and agreed on the following action plan

  1. We will do another test with 30 users and will monitor the RS and SQL Server.
  2. Depending on the resource consumption we will create an A4 machine as another RDS in the same cloud service and will do another 30 users test
  3. Based on the performance results and resource consumption we will decide to use which machine.

Thursday, December 4, 2014: As per our Second round test we conclude the following

  1. Performance related to the RDS and Latency is Ok
  2. We faced 1 user latency issue and we have tested the same user from another machine and it was Ok, so I assume that this is a machine specific issue.
  3. Transaction posting, Fields lookup and populating is Ok
  4. We found out that 1 Transaction with average 50 lines was posted in around 8 minutes which is not acceptable related to previous experience and we agreed that you will perform some database maintenance checks (DBCC, Index and Update statistics) on Sunday and retest the high volume postings noting that we didn’t find any unusual bottle necks in SQL during the posting process.

Following are the observations after running DBCC checks and updates:

  • DBCC CHECKDB returned no errors on both DYNAMICS (app database) and ELDB (GP company database)
  • With GP2013, DBCC REINDEX script (to run for multiple tables) is not provided as it is configured directly on SQL.
  • “Auto Create Statistics” and “Auto Update Statistics” are also setup on both databases by default.

I then posted a GRN with 347 line items and it took exactly 7 minutes (8 minutes less than our previous testing AND 3 minutes more than on-premise). Please note that no other user(s) had logged on when I posted this transaction.

We now should consider in line with Expertise that  we can be aligned, that simulate a production scenario go with 3 servers A7 SQL, A4 RDS and A4-A5 for your web components. Please note that A5 is 2 cores and 14 GB of RAM based on the test result we may need to increase the cores but for now we can start by this configurations and see.

  • A4 machine Scenario is good and CPU average usage is way far from the A5 machine
  • We noticed that the antimalware extension installing is hanging do we removed it from the SQL Server machine and will restart it
  • For the RDS machine it will remain as it is till we finalize the Web client stress test
  • We noticed a list form that freeze, this can be due to IE temporary files and cache.
  • We cleared the cache, also we lowered the settings for the trusted zone to medium-low and installed the trusted cert from Web client and we retested the issue, it was gone.
  • From a common-best practice users can do a more filtered lookups if possible and try to minimize the scroll to end in one click to maintain the buffer for running any form related script smoothly.

Next Actions

  • We need to stress test the web server.
  • Conclude the outcome.
  • After Removing the Extension installation and restarting the SQL Server, it returned to normal
  • The Web Server had no bottle necks
  • Some of the users faced some screen freezing when they scrolled from top to bottom and vice versa quickly. (User behaviour issue)

The following are some notes regarding Internet explorer and user behaviour

  • Only Windows 8 and IE 10 are supported with GP2013, Windows 8.1 and IE 11 are supported with GP 2015
  • It is recommended to Adjust IE settings by Emptying the IE temporary files, Lower the security settings to medium low in the trusted sites and adding the Web Server URL to the trusted sites, installing the security add on prompted by the GP web Client(May require local admin privilege), update your Silverlight.
  • The most important thing is to educate the user of the face that this should happen if the user doesn’t follow the common practice.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, Web Client both became available to Dynamics Partners/Customers from December 2014…With this deployment, this is clearing a lot of issue what we face on GP 2013 web client….So another task…replace with GP 2015

Today…Sunday, December 28, 2014

 

Snip20150121_1

So now we have come to a conclusion for how to go ahead further…..

  • Backup line is up….trying to find a device to manage multiple VPN…Cradle Point?…till then TMG
  • Few users computer needs to upgrade
  • Going for a Hybrid approach…meaning GP 2015 Web Client and GP Remote Apps (reason for this remote apps is because Analytical accounting is not supported by Web Client)

Now we start getting another issue….

While trying to access our SSRS reports from within GP 2015 web client, using Internet Explorer 10, we are receiving a critical error titled “AsyncCallBackException”. Reports are invoked programmatically using “URL Access” method and authentication is happening within same domain.

DETAILS:

We have written a plugin to invoke our SSRS reports from within GP 2015 web client. Function that we use is as follows:

  • Dynamics.Forms.SyVisualStudioHelper.Functions.DexUtilityLaunchUrl.Invoke(sReportName);
  • URL is constructed by using URL Access method by directly calling SSRS Report Server report path.
  • Report is getting generated without any issues. But once we close the browser that rendered the report, following series of errors are received:

n1

n2

If we close our browser and reconnect to the session, we retain some of the errors OR some functionalities such as Lookup button, tabbing out, etc. do not work.

Kindly note that any other website could be launched with the same without any issues. There is a GP forum post which is exactly the same issue, but no resolution is posted out there:

The funny part is that GP 2015 web client works well with Google Chrome browser….we did not expect that coming…but IE issue remains same

Windows Updates Cleanup Utility Add-on for Windows 7 SP1

Microsoft has just released a new add-on (but, they call it a Hotfix for some reason) for Windows 7 computers running SP1. The new Windows Update Cleanup installs and plugs in to the standard Windows 7 Disk Cleanup wizard maintenance utility. Once installed, Windows Update Cleanup becomes just another option you can choose in the wizard.

  • The Windows Update Cleanup option is available only when the Disk Cleanup wizard detects Windows updates that you do not need on the computer.
  • To enable you to roll back to previous updates, updates are stored in the WinSxS store even after they are superseded by later updates. Therefore, after you run the Disk Cleanup wizard, you may be unable to roll back to a superseded update. If you want to roll back to a superseded update that the Disk Cleanup wizard deletes, you can manually install the update.

You must have administrator permissions to clean up Windows update files.

  1. Start the Disk Cleanup wizard. To do this, use one of the following methods:
    • Method 1: Click Start, type cleanmgr in the Start Search box, and then click OK.
    • Method 2: Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup.
    • Method 3: If a Low Disk Space notification appears, click the notification to open the Disk Cleanup wizard.
  2. Select the Windows 7 system drive, and then click OK.

    Note This operation might take several seconds because the Disk Cleanup wizard searches for files on the drive that can be cleaned up.

  3. If the Windows Update Cleanup option is not displayed on the Disk Cleanup tab, click Clean up system files. If the Windows Update Cleanup option is displayed on the Disk Cleanup tab, go to step 5.

    Note The Windows Update Cleanup option is available only when you log on by using administrator permissions.

  4. Select the Windows 7 system drive, and then click OK.
  5. On the Disk Cleanup tab, select Windows Update Cleanup, and then click OK.

    Note By default, the Windows Update Cleanup option is already selected.

  6. When a dialog box appears, click Delete Files.

Windows 8 – Boot from USB disk

Now you can create bootable USB for Windows 7 or Windows 8. Microsoft has released a new tool for this task to achieve

  • First download an ISO file of your Windows 7 onto your media
  • Download the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool (This is a onetime process)
  • Run the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool

The advantage to following this process and creating bootable media is that it allows you to install Windows 7 without having to first run an existing operating system on your machine. If you change the boot order of drives in your computer’s BIOS, you can run the Windows 7 installation directly from your USB flash drive or from a DVD when you first turn your computer on.

System Requirements

  • You need to be an administrator on the computer you are installing the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool.
  • The tool requires the Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 or higher.
  • This tool requires the USB flash drive to be completely blank before the Windows 7 files are copied.  This helps ensure that the device is bootable after the copying has completed.
  • Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit).
  • Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended).
  • 50MB of free space on your hard drive.
  • DVD-R drive or 4GB removable USB flash drive.

Enjoy!!!

Sky Drive – All you need to know!!!

If you have a Windows Live account (or an old Hotmail account), then you have 25GB of free storage on SkyDrive. If you don’t have one, go and grap it. SkyDrive is a great way to store lots of files in the cloud for easy access remotely. Windows 7  and now defenetely on windows 8 will let you map your SkyDrive folders as network drives, making access even simpler.

How to map SkyDrive to your computer?

Windows 7 will let you map your SkyDrive to your local machine. How to do it? Here is the step

  • Sign in to your Windows Live account.
  • Get your ID from the address bar (Below showing how to get it)
    • Click on the “Files” as shown below

    • Look at the address bar and you will find your “CID” number just copy that number
  • Now go to your Windows 7 computer
  • Open My Computer, then select “Map network drive” near the top bar.
  • Select the drive letter you want, then type the following  under the “Folder bar”
  • \\docs.live.net@SSL\ and then copy your CID number here \
  • Check mark “Reconnect at logon”
  • Click Finish
  • Once you click finish, system will automatically attempt to log on to your SkyDrive.
  • Next system will show you to enter SkyDrive credential.
  • Enter the username and password and clik PK

Thats it..your SkyDrive is now mapped to your local machine.

Here you can rename the folder (If in case the language is not proper in you SkyDrive). What ever you do at the local “mapped” Skydrive, it will reflect in your SkyDrive as well.

Apps for SkyDrive?

Allmost all the device now support SkyDrive and it is free apps..you just name it..Windows, Mac, Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad…Click here to download it

Read the article from Mike Torres, and Omar Shahine, group program managers for SkyDrive.

Enjoy!!!

Elcome International – Productivity goes up using latest Microsoft Technology

As a system integrator, My company, Elcome is well aware of the technologies available to make our clients lives easier…The deployment of Microsoft Dynamics has also had a major impact on the company’s ability to operate. “One big area that we’ve been able to focus on is reporting, in terms of KPIs and business intelligence. There have been a lot of advances in Dynamics and the supporting tools to make it easier to produce different types of reports, and the ability to allow end users to customise, specifically things like SQL reporting services that are part of SQL 2008. We were using an old version of Microsoft Dynamics GP. Two versions old in fact,” we realises. “When we upgraded to the latest version – and I think we were one of their first customers to go live with the latest version which is Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 – we also moved to the latest versions of all the underlying technology. That includes the latest version of Microsoft SQL Server 2010. We’ve also moved from 32-bit to 64-bit servers. Everything is now running on 64bit hardware and software.” – explains executive director at Elcome International, Jimmy Grewal…more information read the following article published by ITP publishers on ACN Magazine By Ben Furfie Published May 10, 2011, May 2011 issue..click here to read more

Windows 7 – Multi-language support

Multi-language support is native in Windows 7 Enterprise and Ultimate editions only. Windows 7 language packs provide a translated version of most of the user interface. Before you can install a display language, you need access to the language files. These files can be found on your computer, a computer in your network, or your Windows DVD. They can also be downloaded from the web.

NOTE: Language packs are available in Windows 7 Ultimate through Windows Update as optional updates. They aren’t installed automatically. If you’re using Windows 7 Enterprise, contact your system administrator for information about installing additional languages.

Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise can switch easily between 35 display languages—watch this video to see how.
