This post is a continuation of my little series of learning about Azure. Part 1 is here, Part 2 is here and Part 3 is here. In this post, I’m going to correct a couple of things I’ve written in the previous posts, update the costs of running this so far, and add a few more general observations.

Day 3 of using Microsoft Azure and things are becoming a little more clear. I haven’t *done* much with actually using apps on the VM yet, more messing around with installs and configuration. This is a continuation of my first two posts on learning Azure in the context of upgrading to GP2015 for testing. Part 1 is here and Part 2 is here.

As I sat up til nearly 1:00am last night (er, this morning) playing with the new Azure VM, I was thinking “this is going SO smoothly!”. I should have known it wasn’t going to be that easy. 🙂
See yesterday’s “Part 1” post for the introduction to this journey I’m on, which covers why I’m doing this, going from a new subscription to provisioning a SQL server VM. At the end of yesterday’s post, I stopped at “I’ve provisioned my VM”. After that I tried some things, and ran into a problem.

I feel that I’m a bit behind the curve… I haven’t installed GP 2015 in my environment yet, I haven’t tried anything on Microsoft Azure yet, and I figure it is about time I started to look at both.

I’m continuing to learn more about websites, WordPress ins & outs, and css… the hard way!
Last year I switched my website from Expression Engine to WordPress… for the most part to be on a platform that is more mainstream, ideally easier to get support on, and hopefully a platform that I could do more things myself with.
All was good! I liked the re-design, and all seemed great… until I tried to post articles with media attached (screenshots etc.). Permissions errors out the wazoo… it was very frustrating but a busy time for me with other things, and I ignored it for months.

Yes, that means you, if you send me emails (or phone me) on any of the following topics (plus many others I’ve forgotten about already):
- you think my website needs redesigned (it might, but I happen to like it!).
- you promise to improve my search engine rankings and all those SEO things (swell!).
- you guarantee me a lot of Facebook likes and Twitter followers (who cares?).
- you are offering me mobile application development services
- you work for any competing product to Microsoft Dynamics GP and added me to your “partner” list because you think I’d love to hear about your marketing pitches too
It’s been a while since I’ve ranted. 🙂

Hey, look at that… another year just whooshed by! Time for another post of what I resolve to do this coming year and how I fared this past year.

As most of my blog topics start, this begins with fairly standard question from a client asking why their taxes are not defaulting on their Purchase Order in Dynamics GP.
This situation is something I see a lot of in various clients:
- Something isn’t working
- They try to troubleshoot it themselves but can’t find the answer
- They are getting more and more frustrated at the “randomness” of GP by the minute (their words not mine!)
- They email me with the equivalent of a “WTF?” with screen shots showing me when something works fine and when it doesn’t, assuming it’s completely randomly doing something just to piss them off.
The answer nearly always ends up with some variation of one of these:
- Someone did something they shouldn’t have done
- Someone didn’t do something they should have done

Some days I feel like I’m on a game show, where troubleshooting is a contest… “I’ll take strange GP errors for $400 Alex!”.
Today is one of those days!
One of my clients imports in SOP and Payables transactions via eConnect and then uses Postmaster Enterprise to post the batches. Today one of the QA users was doing some testing of GP and their integrations after a recent database refresh from the production company. She calls me and says something isn’t working right. Postmaster keeps logging posting errors but the batches look fine and nothing has changed except refreshing the environment.

Right on time, Microsoft announced the release of Dynamics GP 2015 yesterday (December 1, 2014).
Awesome! Tons of new features and continued advancement in integration of data and possibilities for applications.
