Multi-domains CRM 4.0 deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does CRM 4.0 support deploying two instances of CRM server on two separate domains talking to each other? In other words, both instances of CRM server running on two different domains would be able to assign and/or view records, etc., accross domains. Each domain would have their own AD and Exchange. If two domains were to configure two-way trusted, could this deployment solution be possible? Thanks alot in advance.

  • If you have trust between the two domains then yes. You can install two instances of MS CRM one in each domain. You will not be able to share data between the two instances though. i.e. you will not be able to assign or even view data in the other instance. 

    MS CRM also does not support replication so you will not be able to synchronize data between the two instances either.

  • Two instances of MS CRM is not required in this solution. Yes, we can install a second instance of CRM in each domain and data cannot be shared between the Organizations. What I really concern about is sharing data across domain. Say one instance of CRM installed on each domain and configure trust relationship between the two domains, can the data be shared across between the two domains? Would there be any issues? Does the Organization Name on each domain has to be the same? Thanks alot.
