  • Here's my exact error message :"The configuration wizard cannot connect to the Microsoft CRM server. This might indicate that the server is down"

  • I'm still not able to install the data migration tool because of this error. Any idea what could this be? I'm putting the right crm server address.

  • You must install the migration tool on the SQL server. It will not work on anything other than the SQL server.

  • You can read at the MS Dynamics CRM 4.0 Installing Guide that the DMM "can only be run by a user with the System Administrator security role.". They are referring to the MS CRM security role!


    Keeping that in mind, I finally managed to get it working on a client computer but for that I had to let the DMM's installer to also install a local instance of SQL Server Express. Everytime I tried to use a remote SQL Server 2005 instance he gave me troubles with permissions. So I decided to let him create a local database and now it's finally working. Although this is not the configuration that I desired for testing purposes it will have to do. Perhaps it will fit your needs too.
