Errors during creating a new organisation

Creating a new organisation in CRM may result in an error with the following error „System.IO.IOException: The network name cannot be found.

The log was showing the following exception:


As the wizard told me before, that everything is correct, I started to search.

The solution to the problem is, that the deployement manager tries to copy the initial database file to the server and then attaches this file to the sql server.
The user, which is running the deployment manager has to be “sql administrator” and also in the “local administrator group”. This is only needed during the provisioning of a new organization.

After the organization is successfully created, you can remove the user from the “local administrator group”.
