Changing/Redirect CRM 2013 IFD URL to new URL after deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

        I have configured IFD in CRM 2013 based on Orgname.domain.com. But now the client want to change the name to crm.domain.com. How to change/Redirect the CRM IFD URL ?  

      1 Option is to take the backup of existing orgname DB and creating new org name as crm and restore the orgname db. Then transferring the solutions and creating sub DNS for the name 'CRM'. 

      Any other options for this to change or redirect the CRM URL?

     If I just create a DNS in the name of 'CRM' same like orgname. Will it works for crm.domain.com ?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    I haven't done this myself but it won't help to make a DNS entry, that only points the request to the right server. What happens next is that the CRM tries to resolve the name inside CRM so I think you will have to do a redeploy as you posted. You don't really need to do the db-backup-restore, it will suffice to delete it in deployment manager and do a import there on the same DB name and just change the name, although that will make things slightly confusing since you have a db called orgname_MSCRM and an organization called CRM.
