Interesting error today.
All of a sudden our development server stopped working. We got the following error in CRM:
Microsoft CRM Error Report:
Could not find GUID for server: CRMSERVER$
[ActiveDirectoryObjectNotFoundException: The local computer is not joined to a domain or the domain cannot be contacted.]
at Microsoft.Crm.BusinessEntities.SecurityUtils.GetGuidFromServerName(String serverName)...
It seems that it was caused by the fact the the domain servers DNS was down. I have read of other causes for the same error, but make sure that the DNS service of the domain server is up and running.
