CRM 4 on 2 server in different Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    i'm not specialist of Microsoft CRM, but the company that support our customer on CRM (CRM 4) don't give us sure information about our question.

    The problem is that the customer decide to move the Server with CRM and MS SQL in to a web farm. The network link from the customer office and webfarm (MPLS line) is not enough and with 60 people they have some problems (because in their job with crm they load a lot off files and photo on crm..).

    The server was moved to a web farm because there are also other 100 people that work outside the customer office by an internet access.

    I proposed in the past to the customer microsoft crm specialist to subdivide the crm load with installation of 2 different front end. My suggestion was to mantein one server (example CRM1) with CRM and SQL in customer office and another server (CRM2) with CRM on server in web farm (with should connect to the SQL on CRM1 server).

    If this thing possible?

  • Hi Roberto,

    This is possible with Network Load Balance.

    You have to install CRM on multiple servers and SQL in one Server.

    If the Database is huge then you can choose clustering for SQL also.

    Please find the below URL to install CRM4.0 on multiple servers using Network Load Balance.

  • Hi,


    the problem is that we have two different site with different IP network. I know that NLB need that the cluster node should be on the same subnet.

  • Hi Roberto,

    It is not possible that both the CRM uses sama DataBase.

    When you installing CRM you have to install Different server roles in different servers.

    Add finally configure NLB for both the servers to a single IP through users can access the CRM.


    You have already installed CRM on both the machines, it cannot be configured with NLB.

    You have to install CRM again and redeploy the Production database...
