  • Hi,

    The best way to move a database is to import the database into a new CRM environment:

      • backup and restore the database onto the new environment
      • Use the deployment manager to import the new database.

    However if you have just backed up and restored both MSCRM_CONFIG and ORG_MSCRM to a new location then you should try the following:

    1. You should install CRM on the servers and have to connect to an existing environment and point it to the new location. [Recommended]
    2. however if you also have the servers already configured you can edit the registry key entry for configdb on the CRM servers and on the database side MSCRM_CONFIG dbp.organization table you can manually change the SQL servers as well. [Not the best approach]

    Hope this helps

  • Hi,

    Please follow the Implementation Guide, it's the best to do.

    Go to Install Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 to use a Microsoft SQL Server cluster environment that is in the page 62, and go to the sub topic option 2 or 3, the option that represents your environment.
