MS CRM 4.0 Domain migration RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are going to migrate our users from one domain to another.

    Currently we do have MS CRM 4.0

    I'm looking for any tools that will support MS CRM users to the new domain.

    Can you advice please?

  • Hi,

    I am afraid there is no tool available and you have to manually perform these steps:

    1. Back up the [OrganizationName]_MSCRM database.
    2. Uninstall CRM 4.0 from the CRM Server.
    3. Remove the MSCRM_CONFIG Database if it still exists in the SQL Server Instance.
    4. Reinstall CRM 4.0 to a clean set of databases.
    5. Create a blank database in SQL and restore the original [OrganizationName]_MSCRM database to it.
    6. Navigate to the CRM Deployment Manager
    7. Import the new Organization Database. During the import, the wizard will allow to remap the user from the old ones to the new ones in new domain and also to the new ones with a different domain suffix

    Additional configurations may be required according to which solution has been adopted for authenticating the services/Web Application pools, in terms of creating the necessary Service Principal Names (SPNs) but these operations are those normally carried out during the CRM 4.0 installation process.
