CRM 2015 (On-Premises) => How to copy all the entities data from source CRM 2015 machine to target CRM 2015 machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a CRM 2015 (On-Premises) environment running on a development machine. I want to copy all the entities data of CRM 2015 on that development machine to another development machine having CRM 2015 (On-Premises) which has different AD user.

    The target development machine is stand-alone & cannot connect to source development machine.

    I took backup of the Config & Organization databases from the source development machine & restored the Config & Organization databases on the target development machine which has different AD user.

    When I try to open CRM Deployment Manager on the target development machine, I get error 'You are not a valid Deployment Administrator'. I tried to create a new Deployment Administrator, but still I get the same error message.

    Please give resolution to above issue.

    Thanks in advance.

  • You should only restore the organisation database(s), and not the MSCRM_Config database. The MSCRM_Config database is deployment-specific.

    If you've got a copy of the previous MSCRM_Config database, then just restore that. If not, reinstall CRM, then import the restored organisation database
