Invalid Discovery.svc URL

bruce.jones@solutects.com asked 8 years ago
I have an install of CRM 2011 online that I cannot get to run.  After install I am trying to do the setup steps.  I am getting the following error:

"Failed to connect to the CRM server : Could not connect to server : Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'https://dev.<org&gt;.crm.dynamics.com/XRMService/2011/Discovery.svc?wsdl'."

The URL is malformed for CRM Online.  The .<org> should not be in the URL.  I do not remember keying or selecting this URL.

How do I correct this issue?

Bruce,

I know this is after our conversation but wanted to note here that when setting the URL for the CRM 2011 Online server, do not include the full URL.

It should be something like crm.dynamics.com with no other characters.  The connection is determined by the Credentials set on the CRM 2011 Connector setup window based on that users access to CRM online.
