I was working on a CRM 2011 system that had several million system job records in it, and the number of records was growing very rapidly. The database had reached a size of over 120 gigabytes, and the number of continually growing system jobs was becoming an administrative and performance issue. I explain in this blog post how I analyzed and prevented the accumulation of new system jobs and deleted the existing ones. All of this information is still relevant to newer versions of CRM.
I recently updated a CRM server to the newest update rollup version, and found afterwards the CRM server was configured to not automatically update all the organizations when update rollups are installed. To handle this post-upgrade situation, I wrote a PowerShell script to automate the update of the organizations rather than manually updating each organization one at a time through the deployment manager user interface.
Google Analytics can be easily integrated into an Adxstudio Portals solution through a simple data entry configuration procedure using the Content Snippets entity. This blog post shows how to enter your Google Analytics tracking code and how the Google Analytics script gets inserted into the portal’s web pages.
I was investigating why a cloud service that was supposed to be unused was receiving traffic, and upon looking at the IIS logs I noticed the majority of the requests were coming from a web client using the following user agent:
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; GTMProbe 1.0)
The Azure management portal is showing a notification for a scheduled maintenance operation that will cause cloud services to experience a brief outage. I haven’t seen this posted publicly anywhere and wanted to help make this known. I am copying the details as shown in the Azure management portal.
If your cloud service is temporarily unavailable today, it could be due to a maintenance window starting in 1.5 hours from now.
I was recently working on a project where the question arose about how much text can a note hold. The need was for a user to be able to type in text, or copy-paste large amounts of text from another source such as an email. I didn’t have an offhand answer to this question and looked into finding out.
