  • Hi Ersin,

    just did the same (moved the databases to a new SQL server without reinstalling CRM 2011) and found out that the SQL server name is in the table [dbo].[Server] in the database [MSCRM_CONFIG].  So I updated the record containing the old name and Deployment Manager is now showing the new name.

  • Hi Ersin,

    There is no official document yet, but the process is very similar to CRM 4. Basically back up your organisation databases, re-install, restore your organisation database to SQL and import the database using deployment manager. I've uploaded a video showing how to import a CRM 4 database to 2011. The process is the same for a 2011 database, so hopefully you'll find it useful.

  • Thank you Neil,

     

    I used some steps from kb here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/952934, strange thing is after moving sql server to diffrent server and making required changes, i still see the old sql server on deployment manger. Crm works fine, but i need to know that if something is wrong with moving sql server.

  • Hi Ersin,

    I'm not sure why you would see the old SQL server on a new deployment. Did you move the MSCRM_Config database by any chance? You only need to move the organisation database as the new deployment will create a new mscrm_config.

  • Hi Neil,

    I didnt change the location of MSCRM server, only moved sql server. 

    Ms crm works fine with new sql server, but shows old sql server on deployment manager.
