Roll back a CRM 2011 database version RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    Through an unfortunate set of circumstances we've ended up with a backup of a CRM 2011 database at UR17 (4150). The unfortunate bit is that we need it to run as UR12 (3236) to support some old software written for it. 

    I've successfully imported the org into an UR12 environment, but we're having some odd issues here and there, especially around users and security roles. 

    I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to roll the database back to UR12's structure, without having the original environment it came from (therefore we can't just uninstall any installed update rollups)?

    P.S. The database is still listed as Version 5.0.9690.4150, while the other orgs in the deployment are listed as 5.0.9690.3236.

  • Hi James,

    Luckily you are just going back to 12 so yes.  What you could do is this:

    1) setup a test environment that you do a clean install on, update it to UR 12 and then to UR 17

    2) Import your UR 17 org

    3) Uninstall UR 17 from that deployment

    4) backup db and move it to the UR 12

    Trick on this is it won't work past some of the key rollups because of some of the bigger changes they made but 12 is one of those landmarks.

  • That sounds easy enough. I'll give it a go and report back.

    Thanks for your help, Jarrod!
