Upgrading a CRM 4 Organisation to Dynamics CRM 2011

leave a comment »

I’ve posted another short video, showing how easy it is to upgrade a Dynamics CRM 4 organisation to Dynamics CRM 2011.

The steps involved were: –

  • Backup current CRM 4 organisation
  • Restore the database to the SQL server hosting the other CRM organisations
  • Use the Deployment Manage import wizard
  • Map any users that exist in the organisation to Active Directory accounts. If you are restoring to a server in the same domain, auto mapping users should work fine
  • Run the import
  • Log in and test

I did this using the all in one virtual server I had set up previously, which is proving to be a great little training ground!
