Redeploy from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am planning to redeploy my CRM 4.0 with SQL Server 2005, but the new server will have SQL Server 2008.

    Can I directly install the new CRM with SQL2008 and then do the redeploy steps or I have to install my new Server with SQL 2005, redeploy CRM and then upgrade SQL from 2005 to 2008?

  • You can install to the new server (using a 'temp' organization name) and then just redeploy your existing database to it. -

    I'm assuming your database / webserver are all on the same server - otherwise you can just move the database to the new server and re-point the webserver to the new SQL server.
