    Thanks Girish!  Can you clarify whether SharePoint 2010 that is part of Office 365 will allow CRM Online to connect and be the document repository?  There's a lot of speculation and mixed messages on the forums.

    Take care,


  2. Great stuff Girish. Would you be able to comment on getting the integration to work with CRM 2011 Online and hosted SharePoint 2010. I have full access to the hosted SharePoint server and have successfully installed the list component. It is activated. I can open the site with no issues.

    When I try to connect CRM Online to that SharePoint server and validate, I get an error "List component is not installed on the SharePoint URL". It is clearly reaching the SharePoint server (I was initially prompted with a login during validation).

    SharePoint is installed standalone on a single server. I tried setting all members to have full control, also tried setting it to anonymous access. Finally tried setting Alternate Access Mapping. Nothing seems to work for this scenario.

    @HammoINF Given your question is environment specific, can you try opening a support case ( You could also try posting it in the CRM Forums (…/threads) where we have MVPs, development and support teams monitoring forum posts on a regular basis.

    Thanks for the info.

    I have posted on various sites with no resolution as yet. I will open a ticket and try the site above.

    To your knowledge this should be something that works though right? I have actually tried this on 2 different servers and getting the same errors. I can actually get it to work if the SP site is on our own domain. Doesn't make any sense to me.

    Yes, it should generally work.

    I am having the similar issue like Mike mentioned above. But I am using CRM 2011 Online version, and installed SharePoint server on my local system. The CRM list component is activated, and I followed all the steps mentioned on the download page. But I am still getting the list component not detected error. Is is it possible to connect from CRM 2011 Online to SharePoint 2010 server (On-Premise server with windows authentication)?

    Can you trying adding the sharepoint site and crm site to "Trusted sites" within the browser? Also can you try enabling mixed-mode content rendering? That'll help isolate the issue.
