In this chapter, we have gone over the steps for a typical installation of SQL Server 2008, Dynamics GP 2010, and Integration Manager. Creating on ODBC data source for use with Dynamics GP was illustrated. We covered both pre and post installation steps, including setting up a SQL Server maintenance plan and SQL Server optimization settings. We also discussed important installation concepts such as performing installations as the local administrator and making sure your Dynamics GP data is included in regular backups.
In the next chapter we will start setting up your Dynamics GP system and company.
