CRM 2011 & Virtual Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to deploy CRM 2011 with IFD/ADFS on one SBS 2008 box. I keep on having problems and to avoid reinstalling everything each time I want to use a virtual server with SBS 2008 and CRM. Are there any known issues with setups on virtual PCs? Also is there a particular (freeware) software to use like VirtualPC, etc?

  • You need to use 64 bit everything, that is the biggest issue.  I use Oracle VirtualBox because it supports 64 bit virtual machines on 64 bit host machines and is also free.  It also runs standard Virtual PC virtuals.

  • Jamie, thanks for your response. I actually meant to write VirtualBox instead of VirtualPC. I've used VirtualBox before so there won't be any learning curve. It is not the most robust solution but good enough for testing.
