Multiple CRM servers sharing one AD OU RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, we've got an existing development instance of CRM 2011 on prem.  I'm wondering if it's possible to install another instance and point it at the same OU that is used for the existing instance.  This is a separate instance, not connecting to the existing deployment.  It would be for experimentation purposes.  The new installation would have CRM (all server roles), SQL, Reporting Services on one VM (Windows 2008 R2) and would share AD and Exchange servers with other instances.

    Does anyone know if this is supported or do I need a new OU setup for each new instance?

  • Yes, this should work fine.  I've had as many as 4-5 CRM servers installed into the same AD for dev and testing.  During the install it needs a domain admin to add the service objects, but it should work fine.

    Hope this helps!
