MORE INFORMATION


Microsoft Dynamics SL 6.5 Service Pack 2 and later:

1. At a minimum, the network user ID must have Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, and Read rights to the workstation's local Windows directory. There may be certain situations where further permissions are necessary (see KB 927618).

2. It is necessary for the user to have Read/Write permissions to their user profile in order to create/access their solomon.ini file.

3. At a minimum, the users must have Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, Read, and Write permissions on the SL shared directory and all subdirectories. While basic SL functions may work without Write permissions on the entire Microsoft Dynamics SL directory, write permissions are required on the EventLog folder when doing any processing within Microsoft Dynamics SL that may produce an event log. Some reports may also produce errors due to not having Write permissions on the module-specific folder (i.e. GL, OM, etc.). There may also be other instances where further permissions are needed within the SL root directory (see KB 845352).


Microsoft Dynamics SL 6.5 Service Pack 1 and earlier:

1. At a minimum, the network user ID must have Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, Read, and Write permissions assigned to the workstation's local \Winnt (or \Windows) directory.

2. It is necessary for the user to have Write permissions for \Winnt when logging on to Microsoft Dynamics SL for the first time (in order to create the Solomon.ini). If more restrictive permissions are desired, Write permissions can be revoked once the Solomon.ini has been created in \Winnt. 

3. The network user ID must also have Full Control on the Microsoft Dynamics SL share and folder-level rights assigned to the Microsoft Dynamics SL directory. At a minimum, the users must have Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, Read, and Write permissions on the SL directory and all subdirectories. While basic Microsoft Dynamics functions may work without Write permissions on the entire SL directory, some reports will produce errors due to not having Write permissions on the module-specific folder (i.e. GL, OM, etc.). 


If it is suspected that insufficient rights exist within the environment, Process Monitor may be used to help identify these areas. See KB 925032.
