    1. You would not be able to Install CRM 2011 on 32 bit PC because 32 bit is not supported.

    2. The best way of redeployment is:

    - install and configure CRM on target server

    - backup organization DB at source DB server

    - restore organization DB at target server

    - run Deployment manager and import organization

  • you need to do first ,

    put db in offline/ detach. You just select database take backup by right click and point to Tasks, and then click Back Up. The Back Up Database dialog box appears.

  • Hi I prefer,

    Convert Physical Machines to Virtual Machines then transfer to your lap.
