CRM 2011 Development Environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I would like to set up a development environment for CRM 2011. I would be setting up multiple organisations on the same CRM instance. What would be an ideal server setup to install CRM 2011, SQL Server 2008, Reporting Services and the email router?

    Is it possible to install Reporting Services on an other machine separate from the server hosting SQL server 2008?

  • Hi,

    I would preffer only this option for the production server and would include a single server with good sepecifications for the development enviornment which will host CRM 2011, Reporting Servuces, CRM Reportign Services Extensions and SQL Server 2008 (to host _MSCRM database) . In CRM development enviornment usually there will not not much load on the database and reporting services so prefferable approch is to having a single server.
