CRM 4.0 default web site RRS feed

  • the way you are thinking is correct. CRM should respond to any of the DNS requests you put thought unless otherwise specified i.e: IFD

    it should be OK

  • I would encourage you to use the default port of 5555. It will keep a certain level of consistency and plus keep the website out of the Inetpub folder. Keep all your CRM 'stuff' together.

  • I would put it under it's own website (port 5555 is fine) so that you can give CRM it's own AppPool and have the AppPool run under a domain service account identity.  The implementation guide will tell you what else needs to be done when the AppPool is run under a domain account.  There are many articles out there explaining the benefits of using a domain account instead of NETWORK SERVICE

  • Hi,

    If you will not be using IFD, then the various organizations in crm will be referenced as:
    http://server:port/OrganizationA
    http://server:port/OrganizationB
    etc...

    so all organizations will share the same crm web site created in IIS.

  • Thanks,

    I understand that and indicated it in my first message however I do not want the server name and port displayed to the user. If I have the DNS configured as above will the following resolve if the DNS names point to the following URL's? Please note the company1 and company2 in bold. In addition #3 below should show the default organization correct? Thanks.

    #1 http://xrm.company.com/company1
    #2 http://crm.company.com/company2
    #3 http://department.company.com

  • Thanks, then during setup should I create a new web site on port 80 or use the default web site on port 5555?

  • Or you can define later an host header for the web site...
    My blog : http://mscrmtools.blogspot.com
    You will find:
    Bulk Delete Launcher(Delete data based on advanced find queries)
    Form Javascript Manager (export/import javascript from forms)
    ISV.Config Manager (graphical ISV.config edition - export/import)
    View Layout replicator (customize one view and replicate to others)
    And others (use tool tag on my blog)

    Tanguy, can you expand on this and give me the benefits?

    As far as the other suggestions:

    I appreciate the suggestions, here is what I see so far:

    Sounds like I should allow CRM to create and use the default web site at port 5555. This will work with my DNS entries and default org as well.

    Anything else?
