Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2: Install Web Services Runtime

December 27th, 2016 by

Microsoft Dynamics GPWith the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 it’s time for a series of “hands on” posts where I go through the installation of all of it’s components; the index for this series can be found here.

Over the last few posts, I have covered the installation of the web client as a scale-out deployment. After a few different Hands On… posts I have finally got the order of posts right by posting the web client installation before that of the Web Servies; this is important as there is a step of the Web Services which asks if you are using the Web Client.

If you are installing the Web Services and are using the Web Client, or plan to, then go back to this post, and it’s successors, and install the web client before proceeding with this post.

If you’re ready to install the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP then launch the setup utility and, under Additional Products, click on Web Services Runtime:

Accept the terms of the License Agreement and click Next:

Enter the Server Name, which is the full SQL Server Instance Name, and confirm the name of the Dynamics GP System Database name, which by default is DYNAMICS or change it to the system database name you are using.

Change the authentication method if required, but I have stuck with Windows Trusted Authentication as I know my account is a SQL Administrator.

If necessary, change the authentication method to SQL Authentication and enter a Login ID and Password.

Click Next to proceed:

Confirm the Install Location of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016; I always install GP in the default location when possible, but I know not everyone does, so change the path if necessary and then click Next:

Select where the security data for the Web Services should be stored; I always go with the recommendation of SQL Server for the Dynamics Security Data Store.

Click Next:

Having selected SQL Server for the Dynamics Security Data Store, the next step is to enter SQL Server Name and Database Name.

Enter the Windows account information which will be used for the Web Services on the Application User Account step.

This required the Domain, User Name and Password of a Domain account which will be used to run the service.

Once you have entered a valid account, click Next:

For the Service Ports, either accept the default of 48620 for the Web Services Port and 48621, or mark the Select as Port checkbox and enter new port numbers.

Click Next to proceed:

Enter the fill SQL Instance name in the Server Name field and then enter the Database Name, which by default for the web client is GPCONFIGURATION.
