CRM 4.0 Data Migration RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    I have a CRM deployed solution on my client server with all the customization.

     

    The client wants to move to another server and needed to move all the data from the current server to the new one, knowing that he is implementing a new domain and a new server for CRM.

     

    Can i know please what is the best walk-through i can use to achieve this task ?

     

    thanks

  • Just make a backup of the organization database

    Install the new server

    Restore the database on the new SQL Server

    Import the organization using Deployment Manager

  • But i also changed the Organization Name, so the DB is different and the restore method won't work in this case as i know.

     

    Is there any other way to do that ? thanks

  • Have a look at this article, it should provide you with the information needed to deploy CRM to a new server.

  • So just rename the database before restoration and when you use the import organization feature, you can also change the name of the organization. So it really works!

  • You could also use this free tool to export all the data from the current organization and do a clean import into the new organization/server.
