Question about creating a brand new org RRS feed

  • Question

  • Currently, our environment is frugal.  We have one organization XXXCompany and its related databases XXXCompany_MSCRM and MSCRM_Config. 

    We need a place where we can let developers explore and be bold with their designs.  THe idea is to create a new org using a back up image of the production env and a backup copy of the databases. 

    My question is what exactly needs to be done?

    Say if we need to create a new org called TestOrg:

    Q1:  I suppose we will have a new database called TestOrg_MSCRM which is restored from the prod db backup

    Q2:  What about MSCRM_Config database?  XXXCompany and TestOrg will live on the same CRM server box.
    Will they share MSCRM_Config database?

    Q3:  Can you provide a link where I can read up on setting up a new org?

    Thank you!
