  • The Website Copy application will create an exact copy of an existing CRM website including all site markers, page templates, setting, etc.  Please note that you must first import the CRM customizations for the CMS module in both the source and destination CRM prior to running this application.

    The Website Copy utility can export an existing website from CRM to an XML file.  This XML file can be used to create a copy of the website into a CRM instance simply by using the Website Copy utility.

    This utility has replaced the Basic Site Initializer.  Using the Website Copy Utility and setting the source to the BasicSite.xml file included in the Samples folder of the Xrm Extensions installation directory will initialize a website in a CRM instance.
