Microsoft CRM Hosting RRS feed

  • Question

  • My company is involved in the customisation of Microsoft CRM for our client. We intend to use the Microsoft Outlook Offline Client but have come across a few hurdles.

     

    We intend on hosting the Microsoft CRM 3.0 Server within our servers hosted on the Internet (providing access via a VPN connection). We do not intend on integrating the Exchange components of the CRM product.

     

    How can the Offline client work in such a scenario where it is connected to a different domain? Our users will most likely be out of the office when they are using the system and only online when performing synchronisation. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

  • The stock CRM for Outlook client requires the machines to be a member of the domain in order for the software to install.  You could consider the SPLA version of the bits, which requires registering as a "hosting" partner, or you might consider waiting for Titan if your timeline allows it.

  • Thanks for the update... Whilst I was searching on the net I came across this from Microsoft; "Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3. 0 for SPE". I have tried to find this in our MSDN subscription and cannot find it... all I can see is the standard Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3. Where can I obtain this version of the CRM system? I did find a Rollup Pack 1 for the SPE edition but not the actual full installation. Your response is much appreciated. Thanks.

  • You have to be regiestered as a hosting partner to access those bits.
