Is there a DEV license facility for CRM 4.0? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Howdy!

    We have recently deployed Dynamics GP, and I liked the <TEST> company that allows you to play around or host a company on a development server without allocating licenses to the company.  Does CRM 4.0 have that facility?  Speficially, I maintain a development server to test things on before deploying to production.  Is there a way to license the development environment without eating away our licenses?  Perhaps a license code for dev environments?

  • Technically, there aren't any "free" licenses with DynCRM.  But, you have a few options.

    1) If you have MSDN, you can install a MSDN license that supports up to 10 users
    2) DynCRM user licensing is tied to the end user, regardless of the number of servers/organizations that have been isntalled.  So, as long as the same users also use the dev image, they won't need additional user licenses, though additional server licenses would technically be required.
