Single-server deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm going to install MS Dynamics CRM in a single-server configuration, I'll install windows server 2008 R2 (Standard/Enterprise) and sql server 2008. I'll install the Active Directory Domain Services.

    But I found this note:

    Single-server deployment

    There is one limitation to single-server deployments: the server cannot also function as a domain controller, unless it is running Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 Premium Edition R2. If the computer is a member server (not functioning as a domain controller), a single-server configuration is also supported on Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008editions.
    Except for Microsoft Windows Small Business Server, Microsoft Dynamics CRM is not supported when you install it on an Active Directory domain controller.

    So Can I install Dynamics CRM on windows server 2008 that is AC DC.

  • Hi,

    your configuration is possible and functional.
    However Microsoft does not support it, because it is not a Small Business Server Edition.

    btw: all demo VPCs are installed in the same configuration.
