Configure Disaster Recovery / Redundancy for Dynamics CRM 3.0
Posted on 2008-10-28
We are trying to implement a redundancy / Disaster Recovery for our Dynamics CRM 3.0 environment. We currently have configured on our production site CRMSVR01 (Miicrosoft Dynamics 3.0 / Webserver), SQLSRV01 (SQL 2005 Enterprise) and EXCHSRV01 (Exchange 2003).
Our plan is to create a Disaster Recovery Server of each of these. DRPCRM01, DRPSQL01 and DRPEXCH01 to be located accross the WAN in our DR site.
We were thinking we could use log shipping to keep DRPSQL01 up to date. Is there a way to configure CRM and the WebServer to replicate changes and customisations made to the production environment to the DR?
I can find plenty of information on CRM 4.0, but there doesn't seem to be much available for 3.0.
If anyone can provide me wiith Best practices or advice, things to watch out for etc. It would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in Advance,
