Pointer to document on bringing production dbs down to dev? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Somewhere in my many travels over the past week of CRM-immersion there was a document describing how to bring production databases down to development periodically.  I can't seem to come up with proper search terms to find it, does anyone know of such a document?  Alternatively, is it as easy as just backing up the db and restoring in dev (how to you rehookup the domain accounts?)?

  • Hi djMaxM,

      It is possible to move a product database into your development environment. You will need to backup your db and import into your database using the deployment manager.

    You will find this blog helpful.
