Moving the SQL database for CRM2011 but not CRM RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can I move the database server and database for a CRM2011 installation but leave CRM installed where it is.

    We have CRM and SQL installed on a single server. It has horrendous performance and reliability problems so we want to try moving the database to a separate server. So far everything I have found tells me either how to move a CRM4 database and refers to registry keys that do not exist in CRM2011 or tells me how to move SQL and CRM to a new server. Is there something somewhere that tells me how to move just the database?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  • Hi,

    I have never handled a situation like this. But I would suggest the following approach:

    a. Install Dynamics CRM fresh in a new 2 server topology (1 CRM Server and 1 Database Server).

    b. Export your existing CRM Organisation database from your existing environment.

    c. Import the Organisation to your new environment.
