  • If you're moving the CRM server to a new domain, you'll need to do the following for CRM 3:

    • Move / install SQL Server in the new domain (as the CRM and SQL Servers have to be in the same domain)
    • If it's a new SQL Server machine copy the MSCRM database to it (I'd use backup / restore)
    • Uninstall CRM
    • Run the redployment tool
    • Reinstall CRM, and tkae the 'Connect to existing database' option - this will create the AD groups in the new domain
    • Optionally, remove the CRM AD groups form the old domain
