5. Specify the SQL Server that will manage the Session Central database. You must supply credentials that allow you to connect to the SQL Server and create the database.
web component
If the user installing the Dynamics GP web client has sufficient privileges, you can use Windows Trusted Authentication. Otherwise, you should use SQL Authentication and supply a SQL Login ID and Password for a SQL user account with sufficient privileges.
Click Next to continue.
6. Configure the Session Central Service.
web component
Specify the Port (the default is 48650). Optionally, you can specify the security certificate that you want to use, however given all communication to the Session Central Service is initiated from other components on this server makes it unnecessary.
Supply the credentials for the user account that will be running the Session Central Service.
Click Next to continue.
7. Supply the names of the Windows security groups that specify which users can access the Dynamics GP web client and which users can access the Web Management Console.
For machine groups, the name must be prefixed by the machine name. For domain groups, the name must be prefixed by the domain name.
web component
Click Next to continue.
8. Supply the information about the Dynamics GP installation. This information is used to start a Dynamics GP runtime process and creates a connection to the Dynamics GP databases.
web component
Specify the SQL Login and password for the Web Client SQL Server login that you created for the Dynamics GP system database. You created this user when you ran Dynamics GP Utilities during the installation of Dynamics GP. You must specify the GP instance name to use service based architecture. If you only have a single installation of Dynamics GP on your machine, leave the DEFAULT instance name. If you have a named instance, provide the instance name you provided during the installation. You must also specify the locations of the components for the Dynamics GP installation. If you are not using the default locations for the Dynamics GP components, use the Browse buttons to select the location of each component.
Click Next to continue. You will be prompted to re-enter the password for the SQL login that you specified. Enter the password and click OK.
9. Select the web site that will host the Dynamics GP web client. This site must have been configured to use secure sockets layer (SSL).
web component
Specify the user account that will run the application pool for the Dynamics GP web client.
Decide whether the same web site will be used to host the Web Management Console. If you do not mark the option to use the same site, you will be prompted to select the web site and provide credentials to run the application pool for the site.
Click Next to continue.
10. Configure the Session Service.
web component
Specify the Port (the default is 48651). Optionally, you can specify the security certificate that you want to use, however given all communication to the Session Central Service is initiated from other components on this server makes it unnecessary.
Supply the credentials for the user account that will be running the Session Service.
Click Next to continue.
11. Configure the Runtime Service URL.
web component
Specify the Port (the default is 443).
Specify the security certificate to use. This is required for the runtime service. You can use the same certificate that you are using for the Dynamics GP web client site.
Verify the host name. The host name must match the common name (CN) or the subject alternative name (SAN) on the security certificate. If you are using a wild card certificate, replace the * on the host name with the address that the client machines will use to access this machine.
Click Next to continue.
12. Configure the GP Service
web component
Specify the Port (the default is 443).
Specify the security certificate to use. This is required for the GP service. You can use the same certificate that you are using for the Dynamics GP web client site.
Verify the hostname. The hostname must match the common name (CN) or the subject alternative name (SAN) on the security certificate. If you are using a wild card certificate, replace the * in the hostname with the address that the client machines will use to access this machine.
Click Next to continue.
13. Review the installation settings and then click Install.
14. Click Exit**.** The Web Client Configuration Wizard will start.
15. At the Welcome screen, click Next.
16. Specify the type of authentication to use to connect the to the SQL Server where the database for the Web Components will be created. Click Next to continue.
17. If necessary, verify that the databases will be created. Click Next to continue.
18. Click Exit.
19. The Dynamics GP Web Client Help installer will be started. Click Install to complete the help installation process.
20. Click Finish to close the installer.
Verify the web client installation
After the Dynamics GP web client installation is complete, verify that you can access the web client.
To verify the web client installation:
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Enter the URL of the Dynamics GP web client site. The default address of the site is https://ServerName:PortNumber/GP
ServerName is the fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) for the server that is hosting the web site. This name must match the name you used when you requested the security certificate that you applied to the site when setting up SSL.
PortNumber is the port for the web site that you are using. If you chose to install on the default web site (port 443) then you do not need to supply the port number.
A typical URL to access the Dynamics GP web client looks similar to the following:
https://gpuaweb.contoso.com/GP
3. After entering the URL, you will be directed to the logon page. This is the first page that will be displayed to users who are accessing the Dynamics GP web client.
web component
If you are using a self-signed security certificate and are accessing the Dynamics GP web client from another computer, you will see a certificate error. To resolve this error, you must import the security certificate into the certificate store on the machine that is accessing the web client.
4. Enter your user credentials. These are domain user credentials or machine user credentials for a user that is part of the security group you created to control access to the Dynamics GP web client. This security group is described in Security groups and user accounts. These are not your Dynamics GP login name and password.
Click Sign In.
5. A session will be created. The window you see first will depend on settings for your Dynamics GP user.
If your Dynamics GP user ID has only SQL Server Account information, the Dynamics GP login window will be displayed.
web component
Log in with your Dynamics GP login name and password.
If your Dynamics GP user ID has Windows Account information, the Web Client SQL User will be used to access Dynamics GP data.
One company: If you have access to only one company, that company will automatically be used. The first page you see in Dynamics GP will be the Home page.
Multiple companies: If you have access to multiple companies, the Company Login window will be displayed, allowing you to select the company to use.
