After this when i logged on to the CRM system using the web client with the user just created i was assuming that i would get all the entities in my workplace and i would be able to work with them. But turned out i got the above message instead which said.
"Insufficient Privileges. The logged-on user does not have the appropriate security permissions to view these records or perform the specific action."
I checked the event viewer and found nothing about this message. So the only option was to look into the CRM trace and figure out what is going wrong.
Here are the steps to enable tracing
1) Make 3 registry entries on the CRM Server box under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSCRM"
a) TraceEnabled of type DWORD 32 bit and set its value to 1
b) C:\CRMTrace of type string and value as "C:\CRMTrace" . It can be any folder path
c) TraceRefresh of type DWORD 32 bit with any value between 0 and 99
Once this is done the CRM tracing is enabled on the machine. However to my surprise the trace was happening in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\Trace" folder and not in the folder which i mentioned in the registry key.
But without the key the tracing doesn't work so let it be there.
Once this is done try to login to the CRM system using the same user and you would see a message in the trace which would look something like
"Crm Exception: Message: Principal user (Id=04becef6-fcf5-df11-96ef-00155d647b03, type=8) is missing prvReadCustomization privilege (Id=7bb3b531-ac45-4977-89c8-b99768e55ab8), ErrorCode: -2147220960"
this basically means that the user is missing a Customization Read privilege in the settings. To fix this we can go in the Setting area as an administrator user and give this privilege to the user or role to which the user belongs.
Hope this helps in case you are stuck with this kind of problem in 2011 - Beta system.
