Server Relocation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our client is planning to relocate their physical server to another site. As such, are there any impact with their CRM 2011 on-premise application? What are the things that they need to consider? Thank you.

  • If the CRM application is accessed over the Internet, then you will need to consider the configuration of Internet Facing Deployment. This will mean reviewing DNS entries on the external domain to ensure that they point to the new external IP addresses associated with the new site and firewall settings to route incoming traffic for CRM to the correct servers.

    Within the network, it depends whether other servers are also moving. An on-premises installation of CRM uses Active Directory and SQL Server. If those servers are also moving and internal IP addresses are not changing then there is probably nothing to do. If only the CRM server is moving then you will need to consider how the CRM server will communicate with SQL and AD.
