June 13, 2013 1 comment

The other day my plugin registration tool suddenly stopped connecting to my CRM server and was getting below error

Unhandled Exception: System.ServiceModel.FaultException: The server was unable to process the request due to an internal error

Below steps helped me to resolve the issue

  • Go to “Plugin Registration Tool” physical folder
    • Delete existing “Microsoft.Crm.Sdk.Proxy.dll” and “Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.dll”

    Plugin registration tool folder

    • Get back the 2 .dlls either from CRM SDK or from “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\Server\bin” path of CRM server machine
    • Paste them in “Plugin Registration Tool” folder
  • Reset the IIS
  • Open the Plugin Registration Tool and try to connect to the server


Types of services in CRM 2011

November 29, 2011 Leave a comment


Below are 3 main services that developers can use to extend the Dynamics CRM 2011 platform

  1. Deployment Web Service

Using this service we can

  • Create or import organizations
  • Enable and Disable organizations
  • Add deployment administrators
  • Configure IFD and Claims-based authentication

2.Discovery Web service

Using this service we can

  • Identify the organization information available in a deployment

3. IOrganization Service

  • In CRM 4.0 we had the CrmService & CrmMetadataService to access data & metadata.
  • In CRM 2011, These are combined in single IOrganization service endpoint that includes both data and metadata

This is basic information about CRM 2011 services.  In my next article i will come up with different ways to access these service API’s.

Hope this helps 🙂
