What are the exact steps to upgrade CRM 4.0 (On-Premise) to CRM2011 (Online)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

     

    What are the exact steps to upgrade CRM 4.0 (On-Premise) to CRM2011 (Online)?

    I just want to migrate the customizations made in CRM4.0 to CRM2011.

    I do not want to migrate data from CRM4.0 to CRM2011.

     

    What I need to do is

    Create a new solution in 2011 and import all entities and related plugins developed for CRM4.0 in this solution.

  • Krishnakant -

    Export your 4.0 configuration file, then import it into a new blank/empty 4.0 database.

    Backup this newly configured, but data-free, temporary 4.0 database and upgrade it to 2011 - by importing it into a temporary 2011 server (on-premise / virtual machine)

    From within this new 2011 configured database you can export the configuration and import it to 2011 online.

    Scott.

    (There isn't a direct way to import a 4.0 customization export into 2011 as a solution file.)
