        <proxy usesystemdefault="False" proxyaddress="" bypassonlocal="True" autoDetect="False" />

Dynamics crm 4.0 is a fresh installation? are you using any migrated db ? Is "Crm" the server name ? Looks like the meta data in the database has 'crm' as server name .

Hi, Arul.

1)CRM 4.0 doesn't fresh installation it contains several customuzations.

2)No i don't use migrated DB.

3)The server name is "crm-srv-01"

from the error , it is clear that plugin looks for a server name 'crm' . If you have access to Crm database , can you go to 'MSCRM_CONFIG' database -> "DeploymentProperties" table -> see the records and look for record with ColumnName as "AdSdkRootDomain" and check the NVarCharColumn , it should have the proper server name . Just to confirm if the server name is proper in the crm config.

The value is "CRM-SRV-01:5555"


May be symbol "-" in server name is reason of exception?

 Thank you very much, Arul!

This really helpfull:

To resolve this issue, simply add the entry in HOST file.
Browse "C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\" and open the HOSTS file in notepad and add the below entry at the end of the file : crm
