    We have a SBS2003 server along side a Great Plains 8 server. I want to
    implement Great Plains, Sharepoint services, and Office 2003 integration via
    Business Portal utillity. Do you recommend against doing this on our SBS
    2003 server? If not, would you recommend I follow the well written document
    titled "Microsoft Office 2003 Integration for Microsoft Business
    Solutions-Great Plains"? Are there any issues with which we should be
    concerned?

    Thank you for your answer.

  2. Hello Jason,

    Thank you for posting to the SBS Newsgroup.

    I understand that you want to know whether it is suitable to install the
    Great Plains 8 on the SBS 2K3 Server. If I have misunderstood your concern,
    please let me know.

    I am sorry that we do not have any knowledge and experiences on deploying
    Great Plains in a SBS environment. However, we do not suggest that install
    Great Plains on SBS due to it may cause performance issues. If you really
    want to do that, please carefully follow the steps in the document you just
    mentioned in the post.

    If you have any further questions or concerns on this issue, I suggest that
    you contact the support engineer of Great Plains. This inquiry would best
    be posted to the <Microsoft.private.directaccess.greatplains> Newsgroup.
    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most
    qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the newsgroups
    regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction
    with us.

    Thank you for your understanding!

    Best regards,

    Brandy Nee

    Brandy,

    Thank you.
    My question is actually whether it is suitable to install the business
    portal on my SBS2003 server. We have a one dedicated SBS server and another
    dedicated Great Plains server. I would like to use the business portal on my
    SBS server to extract data from our Great Plains server and report in
    Sharepoint (running on my SBS server). The document I reference in my
    previous post seems to lay out a straight forward installation strategy (on
    Windows Server 2003) for the business portal but I'm not as confident due to
    no reference to SBS2003.

    Thank you again,
    Jason
