  • Hello Yadav,

    If you want to migrate from CRM 2011 on premise to CRM 2015 online, unfortunately this is not possible in single step. You would have to first upgrade to CRM 2013 and then only you can upgarde to CRM 2015.

    CRM 2011 -> CRM 2013 SP1 -> CRM 2015

    Refer https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh699673.aspx

    For On Premise to Online migration, all customizations has to be exported through a solution. And if your database is big you need to plan your migration using a DM tool like scribe.

    Now coming on to your original question, the answer is if you just migrate database, everything will be in same state as it was earlier in your old environment, and will continue the same way. The records for which workflow are in waiting state or in progress will be resumed again automatically once the migration is completed, if you will stop "CRM Aynchronous Service" then all workflows will be in waiting state so when you will resume the service again then the system will resume those workflows again.
