Move CRM Application to Another Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Folks:

    Here is our CRM Environment:

    SERVER1: CRM Application (CRM 3.0) and Reporting Services
    SERVER2: SQL Server 2005

    We want to move ONLY CRM Application (CRM 3.0) and Reporting Services from SERVER1 to a NEW Server (CRM 3.0).

    My Questions:

    1) Are there any written instructions on how do I move only the CRM Application and Reporting services
    2) If anything fails during the move can I fail back to OLD server so that I don't mess anything?

    My boss is asking for a test of this in the test environment. Can I do the test with the same company name and with same domain?

    Thanks !

  • To move the SSRS please see the link below.

    Install MS CRM on the new aserver and use the Redeployment tool.

    You can read about Redeployment at the link below.

  • ok here goes! :)

    Install SSRS on the new server
    Configure SSRS to be running (http://localhost/reportserver)

    Install the new server,using the redeployment program that comes with CRM 3.0.

    Install and run it,connect to the sql server (existing deployment)

    Keep user mappings

    Launch CRM install
    Install rollup

  • Thanks for the instructions. What happens to the OLD server after we run the redeployment program... For some reason if things doesn't work as it should have, can the users still point to the OLD server?

  • If you are using the outlook clients you will have to re-configure the wizards to point to the new server if you don't use dns.

    If you have a DNS entry like http://crm then all that you do is point that entry to your new server.
    Keep the old server and shut it down.The request to http://CRM would route the outlook clients t the new server.

    If you have problems plaese feel free to skype me!:)
