How to move Dynamics CRM 4.0 and SQL Server Reporting Services 2005 to a new server.
Posted on 2008-11-14
We are reconfiguring our servers and network and will be moving Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 and SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (both currently residing on the same server) to a new server (both will be on the same new server); however, the database server that hosts the CRM and report server databases will remain the same (the database server is separate physical box from the server that hosts the CRM and reporting).
What is the process for moving CRM and Reporting Services to a new server and "reattaching" to the same old databases? What needs to be done to ensure all of our customizations in the CRM system itself are transferred (custom entities, reports, etc.)?
