General Upgrade Rollup and Service Pack Notes:

  • Testing CRM Update Rollups: Best Practices
    • Microsoft Dynamics CRM Premier Field Engineering recommends doing all the standard testing you generally do for all Updates, which could be the functional and performance testing that you would do with a new major release or a subset of that test plan
    • The “general rule of thumb” for test plans for Update Rollup installs are:
      • Test any changes in a pre-production environment BEFORE introducing into your production environment. Manage your risk!
      • Consider using the Performance Toolkit for Microsoft Dynamics CRM to simulate your production user load in your testing environment, to shake out any performance-related issues early. The CRM 2011 version is currently being evaluated against CRM 2013 and CRM 2015, but CRM Premier Field Engineering can help you use the CRM Performance Toolkit with either CRM 2013 or CRM 2015
      • Test using the permissions your most restrictive end-user roles have. Testing with CRM Administrator permissions, for example, does not give you the complete picture
      • Concentrate on your SDK customizations, JavaScript, ISV add-ons – basically anything that’s not OOB functionality or customizations done from within the UI

Full Text indexing now provided for CRM On-premise customers with Update 0.1!

By default, Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 with Update 0.1 installed uses the same search functionality that was available in previous releases, which is based mostly on string matches. Now, with CRM 2015 Update 0.1, CRM system administrators have the option to use full-text indexing for Quick Find.

We recommend that you consider enabling full-text indexing for Quick Find because it can provide a better search experience by improving query performance. Full-text search also uses more sophisticated indexing methods that includes support for linguistic-based searches and superior relevance ranking. While the previous search method (standard indexing) returns results based on literal matches, full-text indexing returns linguistic-based matches. For example, the term "service" can return similar words like servicing and serviced.

Note to CRM Administrators: When you enable full-text indexing for a database with a large number of columns, the size of the transaction log of the organization database may increase. So as always when configuring Quick Find, consider the implications by reviewing the full TechNet documentation for this feature addition: Configure Quick Find options for the organization

Support for new technologies provided by CRM 2015 Update 0.1:

The Microsoft Dynamics CRM Engineering team consistently tests Microsoft Dynamics CRM and associated CRM Updates against pre-release and release versions of technology stack components that Microsoft Dynamics interoperates with. When appropriate, Microsoft releases enhancements via future Microsoft Dynamics CRM Updates or new major version releases to assure compatibility with future releases of these products. This compatibility matrix is updated via this Microsoft Knowledge Base article: Microsoft Dynamics CRM Compatibility List.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 Update 0.1 provides support for:

Hotfixes and updates that you have to enable or configure manually

Occasionally, updates released via Microsoft Dynamics CRM Updates require manual configuration to enable them. Microsoft Dynamics CRM Updates are always cumulative; for example, Update 0.2 will contain all fixes previously released via Update 0.1 as well as fixes newly released via Update 0.2. So if you install Update 0.2 on a machine upon which you previously installed no Updates, you will need to manually enable any desired fixes for Update Rollups 0.1-0.2:
