CRM 2013 Easy way to find a GUID

I you want to find the guid (id) of an entity record in CRM 2013 do this:

1) Right-click the record in a list, for example a Contact, and select “Open in a New Window”.

2) The URL of the page will now display in the address bar. Copy the URL to notepad:

https://orgX.crm4.dynamics.com/main.aspx?etc=2&extraqs=&histKey=417109192&id=%7b4362F996-893C-E311-9B5D-6C3BE5BEEF3C%7d&newWindow=true&pagetype=entityrecord&sitemappath=MA%7cCustomers%7cnav_conts#840474163

3) Now select the text between “&id=%7b” and “%7d&newWindow” since this is where you’ll find the GUID: 4362F996-893C-E311-9B5D-6C3BE5BEEF3C

 

CRM 2011 Rollup 15 setup issues

We received following error messages when updating to Rollup 15:

Action.Microsoft.Crm.Setup.Common.Update.DBUpdateAction failed.

Cannot drop the procedure ‘p_GetAllOrgsFromAuthInfo’, because it does not exist or you do not have permission.

Cannot drop the procedure ‘dbo.p_DisableCreateUser’, because it does not exist or you do not have permission.

After finding more info here we solved this by dropping the procedures and letting the setup re-create them.
