Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Dear Experts...

We have a Active Directory Server (Only Server) Crash this morning, the only way to restore it was restore a system state Backup. But the our System State Backup date is 20/Jan and today is 12/Feb.

Our Microsoft CRM Stops to Work. Is there a way to restore it by recreating the Active Directory Objects, how ?

Please any help will be very apreciated....
Watch Question

sounds fun.

You are going to have to likely re-deploy you current crm database.  I think you should be able to just restore a copy of your database (Org_MSCRM) go into Deployment Manager and Import that Org (it will remap your users and should correct itself).

If you can't get into Deployment Manager, you may have to re-install CRM with a dummy org and then import your database as above.

What errors are you getting when you try to access CRM? (and from where?)

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
